We have been with this school since the first day it has opened, as one of my children started in an older grade he is flourishing but already had his foundations before he started. As my other child started in a lower level and needed the foundations. This school failed to provide those foundations for her and is now struggling with those basic skills needs like reading. If you need a school that will provide extra resources this would not be that school. I felt like everyone just kept brushing everything under the carpet.
I could go on and on about how the teachers really care, the principal is involved, and the cirriculum is engaging. I think what really sums up our school is this quote from my child before winter break, "Aw, we have to wait two whole weeks to go back to school?"
I love The Village for so many reasons. The biggest being the amazing teachers that are so tuned in to my 3 kids and their needs. My kids love school and are upset anytime they have to miss. I love the small community and closeness that is The Village. We may not have a cutting edge building, but in all other areas The Village out does the previous neighborhood school we were in.
We switched to The Village this year, and have four children enrolled. I have two in middle school (6th and 8th grades) and two in first grade. We have been SO happy! My 8th grader has found an interesting and challenging academic community that he prefers to the overwhelming size of his last middle school. My 6th grader is getting personalized attention that he needs, and is bringing home better grades than he's ever had! My twins LOVE their first-grade teacher, and their school. Just this morning one said (for not the first time), "I'm glad we switched to The Village!"
The Village Charter School has been a phenomenal learning environment for my children. I can't think of a better environment for my middle schooler. He has teachers who care about him, know him and encourage him to excel and be a leader. We have seen a boy who was shy and unsure of himself blossom into a confident and cheerful young man. All of the teachers are outstanding. They are creative, fun, and very caring about each individual student. They want all the students to excel and you can feel their dedication to their students. The parent community is strong and very active in the school and they do a good job bringing the community together. I can't say enough good about The Village Charter School! I wish I would have had this kind of education when I was in school! It is so creative & FUN!
My kids love this school and so do I! They have absolutely flourished in all areas of learning and character. The middle school program is amazing and has some of the highest scores in the state. The teachers and staff really love the kids and work so hard at providing a well rounded education. We love the community atmosphere and the engaging, hands-on curriculum!
Don't let the little building that this school is housed in fool you - there are wonderful things going on in there! I love the hands on learning, the guided exploration and discovery of concepts rather than the lecture, worksheets or rote memorization style that we had experienced at other schools. It is nice to find a school that cultivates leadership and values student's individuality. I have been very impressed. The staff is Fantastic! The teachers are kind, caring and so creative! They contribute a great deal to the warm and inviting atmosphere. In other schools I was discouraged from going to the school to help or be involved. At TVCS, I am welcomed in anytime, even if I drop in. The teachers appreciate parent volunteers and I love to go in when I can. My children love TVCS and we feel so fortunate we were able to get them in! This school is excellent and I highly recommend it to anyone who values creativity, an out of the box approach to learning, a community feel, and a safe loving environment. I will be excited when the school moves to a new building however in the meantime, don't judge a book by it's cover! This school provides a fantastic education for all students K-8!
What makes this public charter school stand out? Two things: leadership and math. This is the only school in the Treasure Valley I've found that is a lighthouse school (7 Habits certified). They also use the Thrive program (leadership). They use Singapore math, my 2nd grader is already asking us for Algebra problems!
