teachers do not care about student success. they do not follow their motto of doing "whatever it takes" to teach each child. unless your child is perfect in their eyes they will not go out of their way to assist your child. they are more concerned with EOGS than how your child is performing throughout the year. send your child somewhere else if they have special needs or require any type of accommodation or reinforcement.
I went to this school and visited the teachers and the deaf students. The teachers are awesome and very helpful to the deaf students. I'm impressed. I feel welcomed. I would like to visit again. Thank you.
My son is in the special autistic class at VWES and he has progressed so much all the years he has been there. He is non-verbal and has 'classic' autism and the staff is just fantastic with him.
There is no other elemantary school in Brunswick County that compares to VWES. My daughter is in third grade and gets everything she needs and the teacher is always helpful.
VWES is almost 6 years old. It's starting to become a little crowded already, as they had to add trailers behind the school for additional classrooms. The music, art, and gym teachers are superb. The correspondence from the school is outstanding. They produce a monthly newsletter to keep you informed. VWES does an outstanding job of generating parent involvement/volunteer programs. Parents are always invited to join their child during their lunch time in the cafeteria. VWES definitely makes you feel welcome, I have alot of faith and a sense of security with this school. The only thing I find disappointing is the playground. It is seriously lacking in equipment. For car riders, they offer a 'valet' type service in the morning to keep the traffic flowing; a very personal and kind act in my opinion. Keep it up VWES!
VWES is terrific! My daughter is in the 3rd grade and is struggling quite a bit with the curriculum. However, VWES implemented a new program, PBL (project based learning) which helps students learn with hands on intervention. I feel strongly that eventually, learning will become a 'breeze' for her. However, the progress may be long term oriented, but the PBL program has all the right tools to promote her learning capabilities. The PBL program will be a part of my daughters curriculum until she completes the elementary school. In my opinion it has proven to be a remarkable curriculum even for students who have slight short attention spans.
