We love Vernon because of the meaningful connections we have made with nearby families and the friendships my daughter has made while learning a great deal about the world around her. Please dig deeper than number and stars internet reviews... more

Teacher effectiveness: Agree
Submitted by a parent · June 09, 2016
We've had good experiences with our teachers and they seem reenergized by the new leadership we're getting from Mr. Keefer and Mr. Parker, our principal and vice principal.

Amount of homework: Agree
Submitted by a parent · June 09, 2016
There are times when the amount of homework for the younger grades seems to be too much, but our son has mostly kept up and has certainly shown growth.

Develops character: Agree
Submitted by a parent · June 09, 2016
We've seen how students who are struggling were given direction and guidance with sensitivity. The students are taught to *think* about their actions, rather than just serve a punishment for mistakes.
