Vincent has seen some tough years but the new assistant principal Mr. Smith is very professional and helpful. My child is in 8th grade and I can tell a difference in the school when I visit. The students seem to act better and the staff seems to be happier.
My child was going to the school and was bullied because was white. Was told there kind didn't belong there. was constantly harrased for the color of skin. Contacted the school and district about it and they just didn't care. So of course our child no longer goes there and we are def done with Bisd. This is not a good school for your child if you care about academics. My child was taught not see color its whats on the inside that matters not the outside. We are now paying for our child to go to another school. I do not believe my child should fear to go to school cause of being beat up. What an awful place. Be very wise about this school. Its awful...
Vincent is a great school. The new administration is great and the Asst. Principal, Ms. Landry is always helpful, friendly and courteous. My daughter confides in her and she has a true genuine care about the kids. great school!
Since the new principal has started, there have been a lot of changes. Safety and discipline are very important. The focus is education of the students. The staff and faculty work well together.
Good band program, there are many fun things for the students to be involved in. My eldest daughter had a great experience while at Vincent and now my second daughter is there having fun. Mrs. Neichoy, and Mrs. Barland had been particularly good at preparing my daughter for high school.
It is a very good school. The teachers are great and the education is fantastic. However, there are alot of students at this school who misbehave and you might not want your children hanging around with them. However, you proboly won't find a better public school in this area.
Sometimes it's hard to cross all your t's and dot all your I's. But the overall quality of the school is superb. The principle seems admirable about student affairs and concerns. And does seem like a person that actually wants to help.
The principal, assistant principal,and some of the staff are very unprofessional. My husband and I have attempted to speak to them about our concerns and they do not appear to care. We always feel as though we are a bother to them and we are merely interested in helping to solve the issues. I do not recommend this school to anyone. There is no consistency in the dress code. The rules only apply to certain children. The system at Vincent definently needs an overhaul.
Mr. Cantu is the greatest principal. The staff at Vincent including the paraprofessional staff are ver helpful! My son just left for West Brook and my daughter just started this year at Vincent. Today was her first day and she loves it already.
