Dedicated faculty and staff work tirelessly with limited resources to prepare students of limited resources for high school courses that will prepare them for jobs or college. Every teacher works long hours to promote student success.


Posted October 12, 2010

The teachers and staff are fantastic, the children are welcoming, and there is constant teaching happening in a sometimes tough environment.

My child is a student at this school. It has been a very rewarding experience for her. She is flourishing academically and personally. This school often gets a bad rap, but it really is a great school with awesome teachers. The administration could be more supportive of the staff, but otherwise it is a great school.

My daughter is a magnet student at Vine for the 2nd year now. She's a captain on the cheerleading team, and is making wonderful grades. The school along with teachers, staff and the principal are excellent. I'm very happy with her progress academically and socially there. The extracurricular activities and programs offered are excellent. I cannot say enough good things about this school to do it justice.

My daughter attended Vine as a magnet student. She had a very rewarding experience there. The teachers are uniquely caring and imaginative people who were eager to share her progress with me. Her technology and foreign language classes have given her an edge now that she is in highschool. I was afraid the diversity in the school would overwhelm her but it only helped her socially and academically.
