I am not too impressed with this school. The last two teachers that our child had here did not even give the students spelling tests, nor did they correct any spelling errors on the child's work. The teachers seem to get along well with the students, but they are leaving out vital lessons in their curriculums.
The school apparently also only makes the children have PE classes ONCE a week, instead of each day like other schools have done. This has disastrous consequences on the physical health of the students, many of whom do not have a healthy body weight.
This school has a lot of room to improve.
This school has the most nuturing environment. I feel safe sending my child there. She has shown tremendous growth. The special education team works hard with my child and I am pleased with the results.
Since Viers Mill is a Title One school, there are many benefits including class sizes of around 15 students and teachers with masters degrees. There are also a ton of free events for family and student involvement. The school has just been renovated and has a two new playgrounds and a new ball field. We love how family oriented the school and think it is a true gem.
I was very much on the fence about Viers Mill before my son was ready for Kindergarden. I am so impressed by the teachers dedication to the students & their willingness to go over & beyond. I love how they work together as a team as well as always being available to parents. The leadership is amazing as well & you can tell they really care about the students & having them do their best.
