Vinson-Owen Elementary School 5

VO is a Blue Ribbon award winning school. It was always a top notch school but now with its brand new beautiful structure and state of the art classrms, the combined ingredients of having superior teachers and administration and remarkable mcas scores make this elementary school undoubtedly one of the best in the state. And if that were not enough the atmosphere is one of inclusion where staff and students through mutual respect and encouragement make learning and attending this school a pleasure. My 3 children have thrived here and issues of bullying echoing around the country seem non existent. The fall festival, spring concert, movie night, enrichment, mentor night, etc. are some of the most cherished times to watch your children enjoy and shine. VO on stage one of my favorites is one of my most memorable. Children have one night to get up on stage in front of their peers and perform anything from singing a song to the most awe inspiring performance. This year one group of boys understandably nervous began to falter. Every kid in the audience rushed the stage to cheer and help them sing the lyrics. It was one of the many great days I've had the pleasure of enjoying at VO.

I can't say enough about the teachers and what a great school we are fortunate enough to have for our children. A great environment in which my daughter has thrived.

I have 2 children in the VO and it is wonderful. You hear a lot of bad things about schools today, but not here. The teachers are great and really care about the kids. The principal knows all of his kids and really takes an interest making sure everyone does well. I actually took the kids out of a private school to attend here as the education they are receiving is far superior! (The private school we moved the children from is a well known and respected school system) Look at other schools and ask parents what they think. You won't find happier parents anywhere. Not to mention how much the parents are involved here. It is an amazing site.
