Both of my children go to Vena Stuart Elementary and it is absolutely wonderful. My kids have enjoyed being at this school and love the teachers and staff. The Principal, Dr. Valentine, is an amazing principal and cares for each and every one of the students that attend. Two thumbs up to everyone at Vena Stuart!!!!!!

We attended this school briefly and we were so happy! Both of our girls were happy everyday and the parent teacher conferences were very helpful. The attention that the staff gives to the individual is the best I have seen anywhere. We have a daughter who was tested in the gifted program and she loved the classes she attended! All of the children we met there were so sweet and happy and it was due to the school itself...plus Gallatin is a very nice place to live!

I think Vena Stuart is a great school. The teachers are always willing to do what they can to help their students. Parents are always welcomed and informed of what the school is doing. I feel that my daughter has gotten a great education while attending Vena Stuart. I can't imagine sending her to any other school.
