Our daughter's 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Lively, is truly the best! Her positive attitude is infectious, and my daughter is excited to go to school every day! She communicates with us weekly, and more upon request, and never hesitates to give more of herself to any endeavor. She keeps up with technology and purchase Laptops for all of 30+ children in her classroom. Thank you Mrs. Lively!
The staff at this school is remarkable, not only at providing an excellent education to each and every student, but creating a nurturing environment in which the children can safely make friends, expand their confidence, and become incredible citizens of the globe.
The teachers amaze me with their own creativity and character--they foster this in every child as well--truly leading by example.
I am so proud to tell people where my children go to school! Thank you to every person in the building for making my children excited to get up and learn!
I specifically bought property to be zoned in Vanderburg ES. It is top school in Nevada, ranks number one in NV elementary schools. It is in top 50 public schools nationwide. (thebestschools.org). It is a five-star performance school, the highest recognition given to NV schools. It has received Blue Ribbon Award, a national award to great performing schools. I have great experience at Vanderburg. I find the administration & teachers are committed to help my child be successful academically & personally . Teachers & resource staff address all my concerns, & motivate & encourage my son to do his best. When I have concerns, they reply in less than 24 hours to resolve issue. They keep parents informed through announcements, emails, phone calls, memos, social media. There is no way anyone can say they do not know anything happening in the school because they let parents know everything, good or bad, that relates to school & my child. The parents I've met are involved in school, community & family. The active PTA has lots of community activities for school & community to participate. Many parents volunteer in school. I find the children are groomed well, disciplined and respectful of themselves & others. The school has a leadership program, special classes: Gym, Music, Library, Arts. It has GATE for gifted & talented students. The school classrooms & hallways are clean & organized. The community environment is safe. Kids can bike, walk, scooter to school. It is a truly community school geared to foster learning & understanding within the Vanderburg family & community. It participates in community programs to encourage awareness of kids donating lunch & toys to underprivileged kids. It trains the kids to be kind & respectful & honest toward themselves, others & community. I am so pleased my child is going to Vanderburg ES.
My child was there in full day kindergarden with Mrs Carnaby - amazing teacher who makes every kid feel like her favorite! My kid loves to go to school!!!
Cafeteria doesn't have organic meals option, the menue is rather poor and not so healthy. I wish they changed it!
I have 4 children who have all gone to Vanderburg. I have one still left and if we didn't love Miller and Coronado where my older kids now are honestly we would sell our house and move. The office staff are some of the rudest people I've ever met. The principal is cold and militant. Some parents have complained about the curriculum. I have never had an issue with that, all of my students were always straight A students, it's just that there is zero happiness in learning. There is no fun there. Ever. The PTA is horrendous and boasts constantly about the $50,000 they have leftover each year. Yet no fun activities are done for them. And now we are year round, yet the president of the PTA is there on a zone variance. If you want your kids to hate school and look at it as a chore then Vanderburg is for you.
All 4 of my children HATED school at Vanderburg. And they were all straight A students with the exception of my oldest son who had a couple of B's. There is no fun in learning here. When I ask my older kids who are now at Miller and Corobado all of their good experiences and favorite memories happened once they left Vanderburg. That is so sad
This is a great school! The teachers are awesome, they really care so much about their kids! I gave it a 4 star rating because it can be hard to find a place to park, but hey, a little exercise never hurts. Sad to be moving!
All of my children have gone to J.C. Vanderburg. While the teachers are tough at times. They are always there to lend a helping hand. You can drop by any Sunday and see the parking lot full. That is because the teachers are working on their days off. They know what the kids need and the entire staff does a great job. The administration is by far the best in the Clark County School District.
