VPA is an awesome place to work and educate your child. Great staff and wonderful students. Everyone goes above and beyond for each other. The new principal incorporates fun with learning, which rocks! VPA has a diverse group of students and staff, one is sure to find a good match for their personality. Students love being there and it shows. 5 Stars!!

This school is awesome! My children love it here! Maddison comes home happy every day so excited about what she has learned that day. All she talks about is what she did at school! The style of teaching is awesome. Maddison gets up every morning looking forward to going to school. She also can't wait to see her teacher.Vpa has great teachers!

My step son has attended VPA for the past 3 years and we LOVE it. The teachers are all amazing and always willing to talk to parents and take extra time to help students out. The arts programs are above and beyond, especially drama! The plays they put on are highly above normal middle school expectations. The curriculum is great, I always feel like he is being challenged and never bored. Plus, they incorporate a lot of FUN in with the work so there's always something to entertain the kids and keep them motivated! LOVE it! HIGHLY recommend.

Although the score doesn't reflect it, VPA is a great school with tons of parental involvement. I live in Valley View school district, but have chosen to send my children to VPA due to all the school offers, including diversity!
