My son entered the MCSS as an eigth grader at VMMS. He had some adjustment issues and the school personal was so kind at helping & encouraging him. They tested him & placed him in the gifted program giving him more challenges and he did well. They also worked with his special needs by helping his self esteem, social skills & general needs. Dr. Brenda Thomas (VP) and many of the staff were invaluable to me as a parent. Always encouraging, solution minded & kind. My son wasn't the perfect "cookie cutter" child and this school helped valid him, it was all we could have hoped for. We truely loved his year there!

Veterans is the best school I have been to yet. The teachers made sure that I passed, and taught me everything I need to know! It's like a second family to me.

This school is the best!!! Even though this is the first year that this school has been open, it far exceeds any other middle school in the county. The entire staff is dedicated to caring for the whole student. The administration cannot be beat. Veterans has so much to offer any student whether it is academics, sports, or club involvement. I see teachers at the school way into the night. This is true dedication. I am very fortunate that my child gets to experience Veterans for all three middle school years. Keep up the great work!
