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.

The school has a fantastic reading program. However it was a little unorganized. My son went there for kindergarten and his teacher was wonderul.

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.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
