this school is horrible! it miss treats its students and parents! they have no values! they would be better off closing this school period!! I say this because my children went there and I had to change schools! this school needs a whole staff wipe-out!! WHATEVER YOU DO KEEP YOUR KIDS AWAY FROM HERE!!!
This is one of the worst schools that I have ever taken my children to. My son was bullied on a daily basis and nothing was done about it by the staff who work there. The disciplinarian is a joke. She should be working at McDonalds instead of working as a teacher. She is very unproffessional and does not address the problems at hand. I actually had to call the State police in to get the school to inforce the no bully policy. This school is a huge waste of taxpayer money. Evidently I am not the only one who thinks so since the enrollment numbers continually go way down every year. Parents are driving their kids miles away to go to a better school.
As a former student at vanderbilt area school from K-12. I graduated on June 5, 2004. I had alot of knowledge of the subjects that i was studing. The teachers there were amazing they helped out whenever they could as in tests and NOT giving us the answers but helping us to figure it out ourselves. I have to say that vanderbilt is a great school.
Vanderbilt Area School gives our children a high quality education with smaller class sizes, they can work one of one with my child. Their technology is awesome. The overall atmosphere has improved greatly since the new principal. All staff are respectful towards me as a parent and are willing to work together with me in my child's education.
I do believe the change in principal's has made a huge difference, Mr. Leidel is absolutely what we needed. And the rest of the staff at VAS are very supportive as well. Thanks for doing such a great job VAS Staff.
