Village Elementary School5

Great school, awesome teachers and a great principal all in one!! My children are advanced! Teacher/parent involvement is what makes it happen. Teachers are willing to work with students with their individual needs. Staff and principal are out after school to ensure students are safely released from school grounds. We have parent volunteers helping our children during class time and on playground. Village, keep it up! Proud parent..
Very disappointed with this school! My daughter is attending first grade. I enrolled her early summer to ensure a seat. When I took her to school today, the teacher had been handed a note that include my child's name..the teach found out the first day of school that 3 addition children were inserted into her classroom. My daughter had no desk area and I later found out that there were 40 first graders in her classroom! What?! California Education Code stipulates that maximum allowed is 30 children without penalty.
Excellent school. Great teachers. Principal is hands on too. He's willing to work with parents, teachers, students and you will even see him in the parking lot! I've had nothing but great experiences at this school . I have 3 students, all different grades attending here. Great job Village! Keep up the good work!
I completley disagree with a lot of these annomoys reviews. Since the start of the new principle things have really took a turn around. This year there has only been 3 suspensions all being from the same child. My daughter is an honnor role student and has surpassed the recomended cryteria. The teachers and staff at village elementry go above and beyond to provide top quality education while making sure our childrens saftey is top priority. I think a lot of the commentsthat are left are not keeping in mind that no matter what school your child attends the child is not going excell if the parents dont participate in the childs education.
I was very pleased with Village School overall, until a new Principal came. His priorities seem to be out of order. He can redesign the office, but the school can't afford even one field trip per class per year. He makes changes that are ineffective and harmful, like providing more limited drop off times for children, thus increasing the traffic, insanity, and danger to children and motorists in the limited time he allots. Waving proctors do make the parking lot safe. Mojave and Ashley Glen are extremely dangerous roads. To top it off, he changes the school's hours in April with only six weeks of school left. The teachers and office staff are awesome, but the Principal leaves much to be desired.
