VHES is an amazing school. The office staff and principal are really nice. All of the teachers are great at VHES. PTA is on top of everything and there are a lot of fundraisers so kids can go on field trips, have assemblies at school, and money left over for teaching supplies. Friday flag day is every Friday and all of the classes come together with the principal and talk about whats going on at school. There is a lot of school spirit at this school. Go Huskies!!! I have no idea why this school got only an 8 it should be a 10. If I was new to Temecula I would go to VHES even if I had to put my kids on a inter-district transfer. VHES has open enrollment.

I am very sad that our family will be leaving Vintage Hills after this year - the school is amazing! The teachers are always willing to help, and the principal and front office staff are awesome! My daughter loved Mr. Borgeson and Mr. Albertoni! Everyone is always so nice. The PTA does a lot for the school, but they could have been a little more welcoming to new people. I'd heard great things about the VHES PTA, and I was excited to try and help, but felt like I was unwelcome and unwanted. The school itself, though, is awesome, thought, and I'm so sad we're leaving!

This school is amazing. The PTA does so much for the kids. The administration is friendly and approachable. The teachers are awesome. My youngest is at another elementary this year (which is a temecula valley favorite) in a TK program and I can't wait for him to be at vintage next year because I like it better. Vintage exceeds my expectations. Mrs. Oddi has got to be the very best kinder teacher I have ever seen and Mrs. Deandrea is a first grade favorite. I have been so happy. I'd pay out of pocket for the experience I've had. Vintage Hills gives a solid and fun educational foundation.

We absolutely love this school!! The teachers, principal and staff members are the best. They are very approachable and willing to help with whatever issue you may have. The only thing I don't like is the fact that they don't have a cafeteria. The 2 schools my kids attended before hada huge multipurpose room that served as a cafeteria and auditorium... it was nice.

This is an amazing school! Teachers go above and beyond for their students. They strive to help the student achieve the best academic education as possible. The Principal is very involved, even out playing handball with the students during recess! Couldn't ask for a better elementary school for my children to attend!

This school is terrible! my child almost committed suicide because everyone teased her and the teachers were cruel. I think anyone who goes to this school should seriously consider taking their child out ASAP. Plus, the school is too crowded and the teachers can't teach all the students.

I have my child on a inter-district transfer from Abby to this school because they offer full day kindergarten and Abby does not. This school has a grant for music and they offer choir, 2 plays a year in each grade level, and band. Each class also has music in the MPR. The kindergarten staff and 1st grade staff is amazing and my child learned Italian, Spanish, sign language, and her kindergarten teacher also played the guitar. If your child has speech, ESL, Autism, special ed, and or other disabilities I highly recommend Mrs. Mills for 1st grade. If you want a nice nurturing teacher I recommend Mrs. Oddi who plays the guitar. The principal is amazing and sticks to the rules and guidelines of the school. VHES also ranks high for API test scores well over the 900+ range every year. PTA is amazing and out of 25 parents we had 22 parents who helped in the class with 2 room moms. This school ranks high on parent participation. Being a former 1st grade teacher I highly recommend this school. Next year this school will also offer BASES day care before school and after school day care. Fit Kids America also offers after school sports related programs for the kids too.

My son is a 3rd grader. I'm transfering him from VHES because of unresolved ongoing bullying. All year long, the teacher said, "I will talk to the boys." We are now going to a new school and thank God. I've learned the policies & procedures followed by VHES are to protect the teachers and school from liability first, and protect students last. Teachers are backed by principals and unions. Who is there to back children and parents? If your child is bullied, or if you have any problem for that matter, and you feel the school is passing the blame to you or your child, stay professional and sane, even if it becomes clear the teacher and principal you are dealing with possess neither of these two qualities.

We love this school! My son is currently attending 1st here, and my niece is in second. The teachers are phenomenal, and always ready to listen and accommodate. The principal is...just amazing. She makes it a point to interact with and engage the students, and to ensure that the students know that they are valued. The teachers and principal try so hard to make sure that the atmosphere remains highly positive and encouraging. I am so impressed with this school-it's just amazing. There are some amazing and incredible parents involved in this school! The PTA tries so hard, and is so welcoming! It's an incredible atmosphere, and completely earns the title "Pleasantville."

I was surprised to discover there wasn't a cafeteria or auditorium. That there is one small Multipurpose room to serve as everything is sad. Their version of a hot lunch is fast-food that is microwaved in its plastic bag. The teachers seem great. API scores are very high here. This past year, due to the California budget cuts, we lost the computer lab instructor and the PE teacher and there is no real music program. -- There are some dynamic schools in other cities and it makes you realize what we are missing out on.

I am a parent of 3 children at VHES and have always been very happy with this school. Beginning as I walk into the office/media center I am always greeted with a smile and a pleasant hello. The principal and staff are incredible and work hard to make this the best school it can be. My children look forward to the Friday Flag Salutes, the Lasting Impression Wall and all the kindness inspiring activities at VHES. It's a great place to be a student!

My 11 year experience at Vintage Hills has been a most positive one. From the administration, office staff and wonderful teachers, my daughters excelled and had a solid core foundation that was the direct result of their time at Vintage Hills. The girls talk about the fun times during PE, music, art and the fabulous computer lab! They still keep in contact with their 'reading buddies' and miss the recess time as well as the pepperoni pizza. We have been blessed to have our girls at such a positive wonderful school for those important elementary years. Thank you Vintage Hills for putting children first.

A bit dissapointed...the teachers are mostly good, and plenty of SAHM's keep things running, but a lot of projects end up basically done by the parents! I'm in the classroom, so I see it. NO gym, no real auditorium, and no cafeteria means they must cater in box lunches that are inferior, and eat in the hallway when it rains(!) I expect a better facility in this affluent district.

The academic programs are very good, although a good deal of the special projects require a great deal of parent help. So, the quetion becomes who is really learning and earning the grades. The majority of the teachers are extremely organized and care about their students. The music and art programs are very good but the sports is basically limited to P.E. The extracurricular activities are mostly fund raising 'parties' often sponsored by the PTA. The parents (of which I am one) are highly involved. We are encouraged by the administration and teachers to volunteer in our children's classes. This has helped create a much stronger sense of community for the students and parents alike. I beleive sense of community makes VHES a safer place for our children to learn.

Vintage hills does have some good teachers but you had better be high on the pta or you will not get heard at vintage hills, and you will for sure not get the better teachers. Also there are a lot of kids there that are not from this area because we have high taxes in this area people cheat the addresses.Which is very upsetting when I paid more for my home hoping for a better school.

My two children have had excellent teachers every year. My 5th grader is an A and B student despite minor learning disabilities. My 2nd grader is reading and writing off the charts. I feel the teachers that I have experienced are extremely gifted in reaching kids. We lost our principal to a new school last year but the vice principal has proven to be just as effective.

Both of my kids went to VHES. If your child is one who excells at school this is the school for you. Lot's of parents bragging about how my child is in Gate Program! By the way my children are average students.

While in previous years this school has rated highly, this year's new principal is severly lacking in leadership skills. Many of the teachers are quite good, but the needs of students with any type of special requirements (high or low) are not being attended to. There is no art instruction, music instruction is average with seemingly little enthusiasm, yet P.E. excessive programs monopolize the school's energies. There is a fair amount of parent involvement, which is a great thing for the kids, however, there is a small group of parents (predominantly in the PTA) who seem to make all the choices for school activites and functions.

Vintage Hills elementary is an excellent school. There is a music program, including chorus and band. They have a PE program with a PE specialist who offers a very comprehensive PE program for the kids. The parents are very involved and the teachers are excellent.
