I have been a parent of 3 students whom have attended since 2000. I absolutely love the school and the teachers are all very caring and loving. I have been threw several principle changes in the last 10 yrs, I have made other reviews about the administration that were not favorable and they are no longer here, so I will say again that I am not pleased at all with the new principle she does not encourage and actually seem to hate parent involvement. She does not believe in any form of celebrations since it is not conducive to a learning environment nor do they hold any educational value. She runs the school with an iron fist, I am just glad this is my sons last yr. there, but I know I would not send another child there, with this administrator. I do find it curious that all the negative reviews for the last 2yrs have been removed.

My child has attended VGESS for 4 years. After her kindergarten year, the school board brought in a new principal and assistant principal. I love them both. They have brought structure, order and security to Village Green and I couldn't be happier. Not only are they great leaders, but they both clearly love the students and want what's best for all of them. The entire staff is wonderful. My child's 3rd grade teacher is the best she has ever had so far, but all of her instructors have been great. I only wish this was a K-8 school so that my daughter could benefit for 3 extra years. This is a great school.

VGE is the best elementary school. It is a magnet school that offers global and environmental studies. We are a small school. Yet we have the greatest teachers, staff, students and parents that have a common goal to learn and protect our environment. Our kids are our future!

My son is in 1st grade and loves his teacher. His kindergarten year was great also. This year the new principle is ruling the school with an iron fist. My son is afraid of her. I am not sure he will continue next year if things do not get better.

My children have been going to VGE for many years and have been happy. This year they have a new principle that is trying to climb the corporate ladder and is taking the rules to a new level. My son describes it as a prison. I'm just thankful it's his last year.

My son has been attending VGE since K. All the teachers and staff have been more wonderful than the next. However there is one teacher in 3rd grade that is above them all, Mrs Pam Shotola is a exceptional experienced teacher who has transformed my sons education and outlook on school. Awsome job to Mrs. Shotola and VGE.

I am a proud parent of VGE. Miss Clancy is the best teacher ever. She has a way to make every child feel like they are number one. She teaches more than the ABC'S and 123's but life lessons. My daughter was truly blessed being apart of her class. I'm looking forward for my son being in her class in 2008-2009 school year.

My daughter started Kindergarten this year. She loves VGE and especially, her teacher, Mrs. Keelor. She is caring, energetic and enthusiastic. I have been impressed with the entire staff. The communication from the school and teacher have been outstanding. As a parent, I can't say enough about our experience so far. It is a wonderul feeling to find a school that you and your child are happy with.

My daught just started this school this year (Kindergarten) and the whole staff has made her feel very welcome. There is an emphasis on safety, as well as socialism, nutrition, and all the skills that make for a well-rounded education experience.

I was so excited to have my child enter VGE. The teachers are incredible as is the Vice Principal. But there is a big gap from there. I am very disappointed in the current administration, and hope the school and return to its A status!

Village Green is an exeptional school. The teachers truly do care about the kids that attend there. They go out of thier way to make sure that all the kids are given the extra help that they need if they are not doing well in a certain area. This is the new principals 2nd year running this school and she is doing a great job. She has taken over control of the school without any major interruptions from the old principal. The kids respect her and abide by her rules without question. Shes tough but fair and they know it! All in all I have been very happy with VGE in the 5 years that my daughter has been there. Keep up the good work!

My oldest daughter went through all 6 grades and will greatly miss this school. My youngest has just begun in K and she's already loving it! Teachers have always been great and administration has always been supportive and helpful. Chorus program was wonderful and academics are challenging for our bright daughters.
