Teachers and staff seem to have a genuine love for our children. Teachers work so hard it's unreal

I give this school a two because my son's teacher is absolutely amazing. However, some of the school's administrators can seem quite rude & make you feel out of place. I have only gotten good vibes off a very few of them and there is one particular guy that helps the students after school that I'm almost positive is racist! My son has improved greatly both academically & behavior wise. Thank God my son is over flow & won't have to attend next year.

I would highly recommend this school to anyone moving to the area. I've never had a problem there and the parent/teacher communication is fabulous!

This will be our 6th year as part of the Vann family. Both of my daughters have had great educational experiences here. The faculty is strong at each grade level. We also have nothing but praise for the art and PE teachers. We never had a problem with parent/school communication. The weekly school newsletter and teacher notes were very helpful. In addition, all of our teachers were accessible by e-mail or written notes. We found the entire staff to be caring and responsive. I would highly recommend this school to anyone moving to the area.

I have been very happy with Vann. The administration and the teachers really care about my daughter. It is the way a elementary school should be.

We moved here this year from out of state and my son is in Kindergarten at Vann. Mrs. Bryan has been excellent and is so loving and caring toward all of the children. There are many opportunities for parent involvement and the PTO seems very strong. I'm not sure what the previous reviewers were referring to with the communication. Perhaps that was in years past and has been resolved. We have had excellent communication (weekly newsletters from administration, frequent updates/newsletters from Mrs. Bryan and occasional letters from Kindergarten teachers as a group.) I love the 'folder' system that serves as a daily communication tool. Work comes home in a folder so that you review, sign and send back. This also informs you have how their day was as far as discipline. I can honestly say that I don't see how they could improve the communication any more. Highly recommend this school!!

We moved here last year. I have a 4th grader and a kindergartener. I love this school, the teachers are the best I have ever had to deal with, my son was an A student before moving here and he has maintained his grade point. Excellent school. They are very involved in what the children are doing and learning, everything is taken very seriously at Vann. We love it. Thanks

My son has been at Vann two years now and we love it. The teachers and staff are very caring. The specialty teachers are great. Parents are very involved. The Watch Dog Dad program is wonderful. Communication is good. We get weekly newsletters and bahavior reports. My son is doing really well in school. I especially like the Math curriculum.

My children go to Marguerite Vann. We have been very pleased with everything at our school. I would have to disagree with the parent who feels their is no communication. The school sends a weekly newsletter. The school also has an updated website. The Teachers send weekly or daily behavior communication, and weekly or bimonthly classroom newsletters. This parent must not be checking their child's backpack!

My daughter attended Vann from K though 4th grade and we always had excellent experiences with all the teachers and staff except one 2nd grade teacher. I would recommend Vann to anyone. Even the office staff and lunch room staff is great. We love you all.

This school has no communication whatsoever! I guess you just have to be in the 'right' tax bracket to even be able to have any lines of communication brought your way. Not overly impressed with teaching credentials either. If you want to have your children taught in the appropriate manner, heres some suggestions: Send them to private school or do it yourself! This school receives a big fat F from my family.

We moved to Conway after a bad experience at another school. Our experience has been wonderful. Any issue that comes up is taken seriously by the staff. My daughter loves going to school at Marguerite Vann Elementary!

My son has attended Vann for 2 years now. I am impressed with this school and recommend it to everyone. Vann has an excellent PTO for parents to get involved in their child's school.

Not allot of Special Needs help. So far one good teacher we have encountered. Cirriculum is being changed too much. Teachers don't know that to teach. No interpreters on site all day like they need to be, so kids sit all day without help. We have been here three years nothing has changed.
