Wonderful teachers, very involved parent team, and great principals/staff! We are very happy to have our children enrolled at this school!
We love being a part of the Vance community! The admin and teachers are all dedicated and caring, and we have felt very well heard and cared for when we have had concerns around our son's special needs. There is a great open door policy with parents, and this school does a great job of interacting with and taking advantage of opportunities and resources in the surrounding Asheville community.
Vance is a great school with a very supportive parent community. We have an amazing garden and great after-school enrichment program.
Vance is AWESOME! My daughter loves the teachers and the entire staff. She looks forward to going to school. The community is fantastic and parents are always in the school. It is the best around.
Awesome spirit! We love the teachers, Parent Team and especially the garden. Our parent-led afterschool enrichment program rocks.
the curriculum is rigorous, well planned, and prepared. The staff are there solely for student success both socially and academically.
fantastic. Great teachers, wonderful admin, and the kids are out of this world! Hardest working peeps around.
in the best neighborhood, right up the road from the library, and the awesomest recess field anywhere. Did I mention the planetorium is the best around too?
Vance elementary is a great school where teachers and staff care deeply for the students. Where parents are invited and encouraged to be part of theschool community.
As parents we have been very pleased with the experience our daughter has had so far at Vance. I feel like the channels of communication are open there and can get any questions that I might have answered quickly. There is such a sense of community at Vance and I hope that continues. The staff is so open and welcomes parent involvement. We've felt very blessed with Principle Allen has a big heart for children and families. I believe she goes out of her job description to give support to families in need or experiencing a family crisis. I don't think we could ask for more, other than getting an increase from the state budget, but that's another story. I've been involved with the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and they work so hard to provide extra educational and fun programs for after school hours. The Vance Peace Garden is a bonus too. The Garden Coordinator puts her heart and soul into that garden to give the kids an outside classroom. I really can't say anything negative, other than a few things on my wish list would be: Language classes taught while they're young: Spanish, French, etc. Overall, I feel our child is getting a high standard education.
I have not one bad thing to say about Vance. They challenge the students, reward good behavior, and encourage the kids. Speaking from personal experience from k-5, it is truly a great school.
Fabulous principal, teachers, after school enrichment, garden program, all around wonderful community of people!!
Vance elementary has some of the most wonderful teacher who do not leave behind any of their students.
love everything about Vance - the teachers, administration, and parents all work cohesively to make our school and great and fun learning environment. I really can't say enough!!
There is an energy about Vance. The teachers, the students, the parents all contribute to making Vance a special place.
Vance is all about possibility. The staff, teachers, students and parents are showing the community that if you dream it anything is possible.
Vance is a place of opportunity where kids are compelled to shine. The teachers, staff, admins, and community have come together to great a recipe for student success.
The teachers, the parents, the supporters, admin is ok...but barely.
