Vanderbilt Charter Academy is by far the best school in our area. My daughters last school refused to help her in the areas she was having trouble in. Vanderbilt on the other hand went above and beyond to get her the help she needed. My daughter went from hating school to absolutely loving it. She loves her teachers and all the staff members in the school.

I loved Vanderbilt when my two children first started there in Kindergarten and 4th grade. In 6th grade however my oldest daughter suffered severe bullying. We were not able to resolve the issue with the staff. I also had problems with how the children were disciplined in the middle school. My daughter has very poor organizational skills and her late and missing assignments led to a couple of out of school suspensions. How does that teach a child organization? When I questioned this I was told that suspension was the policy and there was no interest in working together to change the policy. My kids now attend Holland Public and while it is not perfect, my children are safe and accepted. We have had no trouble with bullies and we have worked with the school to find ways to help my chronically disorganized daughter and she has improved dramatically.

My children attended Vanderbilt Charter Academy prior to our family relocating. We miss the staff, academics and so much more. Vanderbilt provides many opportunities for parent involvement as well. I would recommend Vanderbilt to parents seeking an exceptional education, safe environment and more for their children.

I have had four chidren go through this school and had a wonderful experience! We have had almost every teacher and they have each been highly educated (most have Masters Degrees) and very caring about my child's needs. There is a para-pro in each classroom so the teacher to student ratio is very low. I love this school and highly recommend it to others!

You definately do not get the 'warm' 'fuzzy' feeling from this school. It is more of a 'cold' 'clinical' feeling. This starts from the front door - secretary to the prinicpal down to the teachers. I have never felt anyone here go above and beyond.

Vanderbilt is an excellent choice. I have 4 children that attend this school. They not only strive for academic excellence, they build the total preson. They strive to teach children how to develop moral virtues. Respect, Responsibility, Compassion, Integrity. Parent participation is strongly encouraged and wanted.

We have a sixth-grader that attends Vanderbilt Charter Academy. The staff is outstanding and supportive of our child's academic and social needs. We always feel welcome and parents are strongly encouraged to be a part of their child's educational experience. Our daughter LOVES going to school at Vanderbilt. We have a 4-year old that will attend next year. She cannot wait to start school. Vanderbilt also presents a moral focus program that emphasizes high moral character. We would highly recommend Vanderbilt Charter Academy to any family who wants a high quality education with highly qualified and supportive teachers.
