Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

Its shocking to read this unfortunate incident, and not sure why Vanderlyn management is not taking action on the person responsible for letting the poor little 5 year old kid walk around the school and outside. This is like United Airlines incident, where school management's mail is not showing enough of seriousness in investigating the incident rather, entire mail from Vanderlyn Asst Principal is supporting the measures they have in place.

My child attends Vanderlyn. The teachers, staff and educational experience is excellent. Vanderlyn needs to be updated and remodeled. However the old rundown school is deceiving. Excellent school despite faculties.


Develops character: Strongly agree

It starts with the administration who has a great sense of integrity and character. Every student I've met is polite and knows the rules.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The teachers keep a good balance of work/family time balance at the appropriate grade levels.

My daughter has had a great experience at Vanderlyn. Her education has been top notch. The teachers and administrators are all very friendly and interact with the children and parents with respect.




- a
An Indian school with more homework and less class work. Kids are pushed hard to study and creative freedom is killed.

Our son has been at Vanderlyn for 3 years now, and it has been a great experience for us, especially compared to the (also highly-ranked) public school he previously attended. The teachers are caring, compassionate and dedicated. Academically, he is doing great, although the gifted program is relatively weak (an issue with all public elementary schools in the area, from what I've heard). Our son has ADHD, and each of his teachers has worked with us to help meet his special needs. The administration is supportive, proactive and hard-working. Even though the school building is older, I wouldn't choose any other elementary school in Dekalb county over Vanderlyn.

Vanderlyn is a nice school with good care for kids and education too. Though we are new to country, we had great time with school activities




- a
Having spent multiple years at Vanderlyn now, I am less enthused than ever. There is a strong micromanaging of the students problem, and more focus is kept on keeping the kids in line and quiet than on positive and engaging interactions. The atmosphere is less than enthusiastic, lunch alone can be a depressing experience. Some of the teachers are great. 25% chance at good to great, 25-50% chance at okay to good, and 25% chance at needs improvement. If we had extra money we would be in private school.

my kid attended this school for kindergarten.The teacher she had never sent me anything what she was doing at school.On her 2nd day of school ,she sent me a note that she was very slow in writing(with a red sticker on her file). how come they can expect a kindergarten student to write and read like a professional on the 2nd day of her school.rediculous.the school and staff gave us a very bad experience.
