Vienna Elementary School is warm and inviting. Smaller than many other schools I think that it is close to a private school within the public school setting. Principal Dees knows not only every child by name, but every single family member. (I don't know how she does it, but she does!) Vice Principal Davis was my daughter's math teacher before moving up to VP. She has an amazing, inspiring connection with all of the kids. Each child is individually placed in classrooms with great care. Ms. Dees and Ms. Davis know every child well and hand-place them with both teachers and peers where they will not only learn the best but will be the happiest. The whole staff of teachers is truly remarkable. I feel Blessed that my children have gone here!

There is a reason why all the parents, children and teachers at Vienna are so happy. This school is run like a well oiled machine. My daughter just started Kindergarten there out of our zone and after visiting several other public schools in the area we chose Vienna because it feels like it is the safest, most individualized and caring school in the area! They seem to have a wonderful balance of academics, socialization and enrichment. With the start of Kindergarten comes a huge transition for the child. I was so pleased to know they schedule an afternoon rest/quiet time in the beginning of the year. This is HUGE! Not all schools do this but they should!! I have also been so happy with the way my child's class uses positive discipline techniques and reward systems, not punishing the entire class when someone misbehaves etc. (and this happens at other schools). Communication has been great as well...we are one happy Vienna family and are so lucky to be able to attend school here!

Vienna is an excellent school. It's like a small town school in a big city...tucked away as a hidden jewel. The teachers go above and beyond to teach the students and all the extras just add to the great atmosphere that is Vienna.

My school is small enough to care but big enough to make a difference! I love Vienna!!

Vienna is called an elementary school, but in fact it is a community. A loving, caring, exciting, challenging, (and every other wonderful "ing" word you can come up with) community. Vienna meets EVERY child where they are and inspires him/her to move forward. The kind, helpful, encouraging way that Vienna children treat each other speaks volumes about the teaching they receive. At the risk of 'overselling' Vienna, it is simply the best school in which I have ever set foot.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this school... My oldest daugher started here when she was in 3rd grade and vienna did wonders with her! My youngest daughter began vienna and we moved so she is now in another school in the district that is supposed to be one of the top school.. Needless to say we will be returning to Vienna because there is so much more to this school! Mrs Dee's makes your child feel like they are one of her own this is a wonderful school and cant wait to bring my daugher back next year! She cant wait either!

My daughter started Vienna at the end of fourth grade. I was worried about her starting a new school so late in the game and if she would get lost in the shuffle. WOW, this school is so wonderful and she excelled as if we hadnt moved and changed schools at all. MS. DEES is the best thing that any school system could ever ask for. She is the asst Principal but as far as im concerned she is the SCHOOLs everything. She is the most personable person who you can tell truly cares about each student and her teachers and staff. Her entire heart and soul is in this school and our children. I can not say enough good things about her and how happy my daughter is at Vienna. Makes me even happier that we moved to enjoy such a wonderful school even if for a short time.

Vienna is like no other school! It is a home for all children. The school is a community of students, parents, teachers, administrators working to nurture each child and provide an appropriate level of challenge. VIenna provides an appropriate balance between a focus on achievement and raising responsible citizens. It truly is amazing in every aspect!

Vienna has impressed me so much with regards to the leadership and their attention to any and all concerns regarding my children. I have three children in this school- this is our first year here as we moved from Charlotte this summer. Mrs. Dees has been a wonderful leader and her level of care for the whole child and making certain their experience here is positive has been such a pleasant surprise. I feel like I am in private school here- they care what we as parents think, the teachers and leaders listen, and in addition to being an excellent scoring school academically, they are able to incorporate that warm community feel bringing fun to the classroom as well. I love it here- and so do my children- we are lucky to be here!

Vienna is the best kept secret in WSFCS. The leadership is responsive and knows the student body exceptionally well. The teachers are fantastic and everything is geared toward what is best for the child. The parent involvement is also top-notch. I now have 2 children in this school after spending 2 years at another highly-rated school in the zone. There is no comparison between the two: My and my children's experience at Vienna is superior academically and socially. Vienna does an exceptional job with gifted kids and those that dont fit the mold. I highly recommend to anyone who will listen.

Vienna is a school of communications and has unique qualities such as a live broadcast every morning and instant recess on Tiger TV everyday. The staff is outstanding and goes above and beyond anything that is asked.

My daughter attended Vienna for 6 years and Ms. Dess is the best, bar none, school administrator we have ever met. Vienna is a public school but the school works as a private school. Staff and parents work together happily. #1 school in the system.

So far so good. We transfered from out of state and I was on guard to protect my children. I have been treated with care and so have my children. No school can ever be purfect, but with the teachers and the wondeful AP Mrs. Dees, this school will try beyond human limits to be the best, not only with their test scores but with how happy the children feel there. Definelty one the of best schools in the WSFCS district. I haven't ahd any problems so I can't say how that would be handled but my feeling is that Mrs. Dees will try hard to resolve any issue that would arrive. The olny reason I would give four stars instead of five is because five would be for perfection which I can't say, who is purfect

I highly recommend this school. This is not her district school but was one of the five choices we had. After reviewing all 5 schools, this was on top. We are thankful she is allowed to come here. The teachers listen to your concerns and communicate with the parents when needed. I love the fact how the parents are so involved with the kids and school.

I am just about to be finished with my 12th year at Vienna - I have 2 daughters that did not overlap in Elementary school. I have to say there have been issues but I would strongly recommend Vienna to anyone. We love the teachers and the school is very well rounded with talent. Thanks to Vienna for 12 fabulous years!

There are several high quality schools near Vienna, however I choose for my son to continue at Vienna over Meadowlark after a move. The administration takes the time to get to know each child and work with the parents. Mrs. Dees is a tremendous value to the school over all and she's the Vice Principal. The new principal, Mr. Mitze is an asset as well, but I dont know him as well as I know others in the front office. I'm grateful to everyone at the school for making my son's experience a great one.

This is our first year at Vienna (Kindergarten)... I can't say enough about the staff and teachers that we have worked with this year... The teachers are one in a million... very open and receptive to parent involvement and communication... Ms. Dees, asst prinicipal, is phenomenal... They are certainly setting the stage for my child's lifelong learning... We feel very fortunate to be here!

Communication (lack of) is terrible, motivation is even worse. I am pulling my child from this school. The only reason why this school gets 2 stars is because every other year and teacher my child has had has been extremely wonderful and talented. The administration seems to be all talk and no action.

I will have to say after moving to a new school district this year I am amazed in the difference in the quality of the school system and the teachers! I absolutely love Vienna Elementary I have been very please thus far. Although this is our 1st yr here I can see a major difference in my childs school work and I feel like she is not just being set to the side like the other school system did! Highly recommended!

The absolute best school in the WSFC system. Solid and reliable teachers, the most outstanding Vice Principal in history-Mrs. Dees. Any child is lucky to attend this nice and safe school.

Reason 5 stars was not given My daughter transferred in from an out of state, Vienna did not test her. She attended this school for 3 years struggling to keep up. I had to really fight for her to get extra help. She did get the extra help but it really came from us butting heads with the school. They actually had placed her in a grade ahead of where she was supposed to be. I noticed she was the youngest out of the children in her classes each year. We finally held her back. All her teachers have been spectacular and have taken the time to work with me. She is now doing great and amongst children her own age. They should test students before transferring them into a grade level. This perhaps may lay in the hands of the school district and not the elementary school.

Great teachers! My daughter LOVES this school! Plenty of parent involvement. NOTE: The only reason I did not give them 5 stars is when my daughter transferred in from an out of state elementary school they did not test her. She attended this school for 3 years struggling to keep up. I had to really fight for her to get extra help. She did get the extra help but it really came from us butting heads with the school. They actually had placed her in a grade ahead of where she was supposed to be. I noticed she was the youngest out of the children in her classes each year. We finally had to step in and hold her back. All her teachers have been spectacular and have taken the time to work with me. She is now doing great and amongst children her own age. There should be some kind of testing a child should go through before they just transfer a student into a grade level. This perhaps may lay in the hands of the school district and not the elementary school.
