The positive: The principal is AMAZING. The school liaison is OUTSTANDING. It's a community school, teachers are encouraged to spend extra time getting to know their students . The negative: -The school has violent behavior problems (students attacking teachers , other students and school property). -The VP or TOSA dresses inappropriately; stilettos, tight clothes and is not in her 20's. She does not address behavior problems . (when a student is sent to the office they get to color or play on an iPad) which makes the student WANT to misbehave and hurt other people. -They need a male VP who the community will respect. -Some teachers are burnt out and it shows in their interactions with students.
They do not know how to communicate with the parents when something happens with your child. However,my sons teacher Ms.Boots is the greatest. She has helped my son move up 5 reading levels in 2 m months
I have 3 sons who have attended Vaughn for 4 years and I've never had a problem with the teachers, or the staff. This is a great school that really makes you feel that you're part of our family. The parent coffees are great ways to get information, but they are also a great social time for parents to meet each other and talk. I've made many friends over the past 4 years here and I love it. The teachers are dedicated and love teaching the kids. We had a lot of changes to the staff, but it is all for the better. Our new principal and assistant principal are heaven sent. They participate with the kids and interact with them on a daily basis, they are always outside talking to parents,they come to the parent coffees, and always have time to talk with concerned parents. I love being part of this community of familes, and watching my sons grow academically! All my sons teachers are supportive of them, and help them in any way they can. I know by bringing my children here will help them succeed in life. Go Eagles!!
I love the new administrator. She really seems to have breathed new life into the kids, staff and overall school. The parent coffees have been informative and honest when it comes to where the school is and what they are doing to improve. Everyone is nice and I especially love that my son's teacher is teaching kids to play the guitar afterschool for free! My kids love to go to school and I love volunteering there.
Teachers and administration do not know how to teach children. School should lose its accredation and probably be taken over by the state. I withdrew my child and sent her to another school.
Horrible, disorganized, slow. My daughter is not learning anything in this school.
