I love Vandenberg. My child's 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Lamb, really took time to get to know him. We entered the district mid year so my son was unable to enter the gifted program, so Mrs. Lamb gave him more challenging in class assignments. I think the teachers care a lot about the students and I am making it my business to get involved with the PTA this year.

My son attends this school and academically, is unchallenged. The principal does not communicate to the parents and the only good thing I can honestly say about the school is that it's culturally diverse and his teacher seems to care about her students. I am trying to move out of Southfield, just so I can send my child to a better school district. VERY DISAPPOINTED PARENT!

The only good thing this school has is the diversty of children which come from different backgrounds. And, about 22 students per room. Children are not challenged enough in their academic work!! The PTA is a joke.

My son started going to this school in Kindergarten. I really liked it initially, and Mrs. Erdos was a wonderful teacher. Now that he is in 1st grade, I have had so many challenges with the school and his teacher. His teacher does not have control of her classroom, and is not capable of working with the children when they are struggling in a particular area. I am pulling him out of this school ASAP.

I really liked the principal Mr. Clap, the gym teacher Mr Krass, the art teacher, music teacher, librarian and Mrs. Williams who taught 5 th grade. The lunch room was another story and I disagree with the discilpline that was used there. Other than that - the staff has a winning reputation. The 5th grade play was outstanding and I know my daughter will never forget Vandenberg. Mr. Krass is a legend and deserves recognition state wide for his outstanding service and compassion. Mr. Hindi the para pro helped my daughter understand fractions and deserves a raise - We will miss all of you guys!

I sent my daughter to this school and I was very impressed. They had a great PTA system and a lot of parents got involved. Including me! It is a great learning environment for any child in Kindergarten to 5th grade.
