Vine Elementary was going through some big changes when my child began kindergarten four years ago! A new principal, new standards, lifelong teachers retiring it was a wait and see for the outcome. It was a slow process, but well worth the wait. The values and respect instilled sees happy and healthy children as children and nothing more. My child is excelling, and does homework with pride, because her teacher acknowledges and shares in all of her kids achievements with her sense of pride. There are no strangers at Vine Elementary, because we have one thing in common and that is the success of all our students!
pretty good. nice teachers. students are okay. great test scores! good experience. happy kids and parents
You need to improve your HISPANIC and DISABLED students test score...GOOD LUCK WITH THAT FROM TIFFANY JOHNSON!!! I HONOR DR. NEITO former professor at CSULB -SHE COULD TEACH FROM A WHEELCHAIR -- THE KIDS WERE GOOD! Its that book Can you teach! Good Principals should be that supportive --where a teacher can sit in a wheelchair. They are honored able to teach!
I am appalled with what this parent has written. They are making wrongful allegations and are hurting Vine's reputation. I feel it is and excuse because they are in denial of their child's behavior. They are looking to blame someone else rather than facing the reality. I have not once encountered any of this and am very angry that someone would write something like this. My child has blossomed tremendously this year thanks to the first grade staff. They take pride in what they do and work hard to help our children. I feel this is absurd nonsense and whoever wrote this has issues themselves. They are looking for someone else to blame to avoid dealing with the reality. This can in turn damage the child in the long run.
My child went to Vine k-5 and had a wonderful experience...she had the best of the best teachers while at Vine....Mrs. Leinbach, Mrs. LarsonSIlva, Mrs. Newlon, Miss Kane, Mrs Henderson and of course Mrs. Folwer...she was very blessed to be able to have these wonderful, caring teachers who have molded her into this wonderful young lady, who is now an honor student in middle school. Sadly some of these teachers are gone and I don't feel that the second grade team as a good as it can be, to clickish and don't seem to have the children's best intrest. Hope the new pricipal, who seems very cold at times and has scared some of the younger students at an assembly - will see this and make some changes to benefit all of these wonderful students who are our tomorrows future. I hope to see some improvements in the following year as this school had gone from a 10 to 3.5 in the last 3 yrs.
This is a good school with a great administration. While testing is valued, it is not valued more than the students, Which I feel is a big part of this school's success.
I am a proud parent of and Kindergartener at Vine and thus far have been really pleased with their instructional program. The kindergarten eachers at Vine are passionate about teaching. They are warm, welcoming and very nurturing while maintaining a structured and extremely organized learning environment. One of the main things I appreciate is the way they infuse arts/crafts/music into their curriculum while teaching the students the core. I LOVE VINE and so does my son.
My daughter went to Vine School. I have nothing to said complain about this school and staff. Principle is very friendly and he's really doing his job, he almost know all the name of the kid. The front desk staff (nancy) every sweet and polite. I feel so lucky that my kid can go to the terrific school.
My daughter graduated from this school last year. She was there from K-5. I loved all her teachers, especially Ms. Lau & Mrs. Kelton. She received great education and really blossomed academically and socially. She was also awarded the presidential award which is a statement of great teachers who want and encourage the children to succeed. I'm blessed for having my child attend this school. She is currently an honor student at a Walnut middle school.
My children went to Vine and I couldn't be happier, they had so much to offer. They challenged my son who was in Gate and they also offered help to my other child who struggled. The teachers are wonderful and my experience there was awesome. I highly recommend this school for any one who's looking for a good education and experience for their children.
Focus more on sports rather than academics and students' behavior. So if your kids are not athletes,this is not the school for you.
The teachers and the staff at Vine Elementary School seem to be very professional & caring. As a parent I couldn't feel luckier to have my daughter at Vine Elementary. Thank you for giving my child the confidence she needs to advance to the next grade year after year.
Academics good for the average student. Depending on the teacher, they help the advanced student, othwise if your child is on the advanced side he will be bored and not challenged. I do not agree with the 'gate' program giving the child more classes after school instead of challenging them in class.
Vine Elementary seems to be one of the most organized elementary schools in the ditrict. Their academic levels are very high, and the school is truly comitted to the academic and moral development of their students. They had set high standards for the children and help them to acheive them. The school has a very qualify team of teachers, that work hard to maintain these levels and to bring new and bigger things to the school. The school has developed a nice music/art/drama extra-curriculum that motivates the children to read and learn about these cultural fields. Parents are very much involve in these activities, helping and participating many times along with their children.
