We.recently moved into the Vern Duncan district from Portland with Capital Hill as our home school. Thus far Vern Duncan has blown Capital Hill away ( Capital Hill has an overall 9 rating). My son who is in 2nd grade with an IEP went from hating school and pleading not to go; to loving school and being excited about school again. Vern Duncan's team has really made a program that encourages my son to learn while dealing with his learning challenges. The move into this school district has been so amazing for us. They have a group of very involved parents and fundraising. The school is newer having been built in the last 10 years. Improvements continue via fundraising and are currently working twards building an outdoor classroom. The fundraising events are fun and exciting for the children. They recently had a pancake breakfast, silent auction, and egg hunt. This next.eeek they are raising money with dance lessons for the kids after school. We.love this school and are.proud to be part of it.

I have 2 boys that currently attend Verne Duncan and I have been so pleased with most everything about the school. The teachers are AMAZING!!! Every teacher my boys have had so far have been spectacular!!! I could not have asked for better communication, a willingness to let me be involved, and an overall kindness and encouragement to my kids. The community of the school and parent involvement is awesome. Overall, everyone is happy to be there and truly enjoys each other and the kids!
