My child was in high school at Vanguard this past year & did pretty much nothing in academics. I pulled him out to put him in a better school to get a real education & not one school accepted the transcripts from Vanguard because it's isn't accredited. My son has to repeat the one year he was there as a sophomore. Vanguard is a joke in academics! They have shorted the student's education and in this competitive world you can't do that! This is not fair to the student that are trying to make something of themselves. Teachers are nice, student not so much. Teacher's ignore problems between the students, even bulling. It was more w/ a few of the freshman girl's that cause problems. Also, not 1 of the teachers is certified & only 1 teacher actually has a college degree.. Another thing, all the teacher's are all related to each other, cultish like. Yes they are nice, but nice doesn't help kids succeed in this world, especially college. It is affordable, but the education is really poor, especially if your kid wants to go to college. I don't recommend this school for college bound kids. Bottom line you get what you pay for, in Vanguard's case, cheap tuition but very poor education.

This school is absolutely amazing. The teachers and staff are great and so is the price for the level of education the children receive who attend classes here.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
