Four teachers and two substitute teachers quit, leaving the remaining two teachers to handle the disciplinary and academic problems. The school uses a Positive Behavior Support system .But the admin team is extremely laxed in consequences for misbehavior. So the students take full advantage. One teacher has a zero tolerance policy and it works. They did not allow others to use the same policy. Found peace and a better learning environment at the very next school.

This is my daughter first year attending VOEA and I'm in agreement that the school administrators does nothing about disciplinary actions when needed. My daughter was held in the restroom by some middle schoolers against her will in between school ending and going to the bible based after school program. We were told that we will be notified by the principal with an update on disciplinary actions for those 7 middle schoolers that took part in the incident. We have made numerous calls to the village and have not gotten a response yet.

This is a pretty good school. My daughter loves it although she was doing beter before she moved to this school but that could be my fault. The teachers here are great. Though they r vey ivolved in the students life n Ms. Gonzalez loves those kids to death n she loves them.

The Village is a school that truly aims to EMPOWER all Students. From those with behavioral issues to those outstanding academics, the school strives to create a self disciplined student that is able to utilize their own strengths to become an asset to our local and global community. They believe in providing students with multiple opportunities for success through teacher modeling of academic, social, behavioral expectations. This School is not the cure all for every family wishing to educate their child, however it is a wonderful institution for families willing to work toward Academic and Social Success.

Teachers lack support and administration is oblivious to the behavior problems and the square footage for a classroom.

This school has no discipline policy. The kids are allowed to do whatever they want. The administrative team does nothing to help the teachers. They stay in their offices all day.

This is only the third day of school, but thus far, i am NOT pleased! It's seems very disorganized. No one seems to be on the same page about anything. The staff and faculty dress as if they are people coming off of the street, the whole process of their school is wayward, so i'm really hoping that the teaching and education makes up for where they lack. They claim they are a "A" school, i'm guessing that is in academics, because everything else seems is very poor..it's not looking good to me at all, thus far anyway. hoping by the end of the year, my mind has been changed, or my child will NOT be attending this school next year.

i currently have to kids attending the Village of Excellence Academy and it has been a wonderful experience for both of them. My son was doing very poor int the traditional elementary school prior to transferring him to VOEA. Once he entered VOEA his grades change tremendously and he became very motivated to go to school. My daughter has also been doing extremely well at VOEA. The teachers at VOEA seems very invested into the kids performance and challenge each child to reach his or her potential.

VOEA is very unorganized and short budget seem like you have to pay for your child and all the other kids too. Now, the teachers are very good and really try to help the kids. For kindergarten that's fine, but all others grades find another school. They never keep good records.

This is my daughters second year at Village at I want to say it has been a great experience for her. She is going into the second grade next year and she is currently on third grade reading level. The Village encourages the children to do their best and that is what they do. They work with those children that have discipline problems by encouraging them and surrounding with a positive environment. The Village also encourages the parents to get involved and takes an interest in the lives of every family. It is a small family type atmosphere which allows each child to get the individual attention they may need.
