The teachers work hard as they possibly can to insure the best possible education is available to the children. I have two boys there and we love it. There are tons of fun after school things to do and it love awards assembly!

Vinland is not a good school because of some of the teachers there. My son is in first grade, our first year here and it hasn't been the most cheerful year at all. The teacher doesn't help him, even though she says she gets help with college students and what not. But he still comes home to me and asks me there are multiple times he feels she ignores him. I've spoken with the principal on that and to change him out of the class, nothing has happened over a month now. The other day, some kid almost got ran over by the stop lights on gettysburg and maple, I've informed a teacher who was standing outside with 5 other teachers, I asked her if there was anyone who can just sit out there by the cross walk to ensure the kids safety, she just replied, "well thats why we need more parent volunteers" and "oh yeah, it happens all the time..." I could tell she doesn't care. If there were a student there who did get run over, they wouldn't care, they'd still blame the parents for not "volunteering". So, think about this school before putting your child there.

I have 3 children that went to this school my oldest finished his 6th grade ok. but when they changed principals thats when we started having major problems. And the kids are bullies. There were about 6 teachers that were really good the rest you can forget. I pulled my other two children out of this school and they are much happier where they are at now.

My child went to school here for kindergarden. I went to elementary school here as well. I was not impressed with the school. The teacher had a large number of students in the class and often needed parent volunteers. My child learned more in preschool then she had in kindergarden. Needless to say I pulled her out of this school and moved her to another one. There is not a lot of parent participation. The school does not provide many extracurricular activites. It was disappointing to see how the school no longer offered many of the things I remember it used to offer.

My grandson has been going to Vinland for 2 year now (K and now the 1st grade). I have no major complaints about the school, we have been lucky and have had 2 very wonderful teachers that are very knowledgable and are excellent with kids. The only thing that disturbs me is there is no parent involvement. I signed up for the PTA at the begining of school this year. this is the very 1st time I have ever done this, and was amazed that there was only about 7 people that were coming to meetings. Yet the parents complain about what the school has and doesn't have (library, music department), but they don't want to do anything to try to get these things changed and corrected.

My child attended Vinland in the 2003/2004 school year. We had a such a wonderful experience with the staff and PTA! Wonderful school, and I advise parents to get involved, it only benefit's your child's learning experience.

My son attended Vinland up until the 2002-2003 school year. Over all he loved his school and staff. Mr. Avedesian(Principal) is a great principal that is very involved with his students and his staff.
