School use to be great. Now run by a principal who discourages and parent involvement. She is against any holiday celebrations. Teachers fear doing activities and celebrations with children due to her attitude towards it. School is inclusion school of district. Some good programs for that, but no focus put on children of high academic ability. Great if your child needs extra help. Terrible for the academically gifted. There are some good teachers, but also some really bad teachers.

This is a beautiful school with most (not all) teachers and staff being well educated and knowledgeable. Many teachers have been here since the opening of the school in 2004, however the changes in administration have put a damper on the school climate as a whole. The present principal is not easily approachable but IS very easily irritated and high strung with teachers/staff. If the school climate and culture is not set by the ones in charge then it is sure going to trickle down on the teachers and staff. For the most part it is a good school but not as good as it was years ago. It's a shame that the taxes are so high because it would be better to invest in a private school where I am sure the school climate and culture is much better and everyone is respected by the ones in charge.

I am an assistant director at the before and afterschool program ran by DCC at Vail Farm Elementary and I work with the greatest group of kids, who are happily provided with a clean, comfortable, fun and easy learning environment. The teachers are wonderful and the school does its job to have every class involved in activities throughout the year.

I am very happy with my children's education at Vail Farm Elementary. I have 2 children there and had one who is in the middle school now. My children enjoy going to school and don't want to miss a day. The parents are welcome and encouraged to get involved in school activities whenever possible. Teachers are very responsive to parents concerns and respond quickly to inquiries. It is also a brand new building and a very pleasant environment to be in. I would reccomend it to anyone.

The teachers at Vail Farm are well educated and wonderful with the children. It's a very warm and loving environment for elementary school. Along with the excellent level of academics, the staff at this school also teaches kindess torward others. The children are rewarded when they are seen being kind to one another. The PTA has sponsered some wonderful programs for the children i.e. Science Fair, Katrina Fun Day, and lots of other fun and educational programs. In this school parent envolement is welcomed and encouraged. My daughter and I couln't be happier with the education she is receiving.
