My kids truly enjoy this school. The teachers and staff are fully invested in the success of the children. We are so happy to to be part of the Squid Family!

For the first year at VT, I think that they did as well as expected. So in the spirit of Village Tech culture, I will give 3 warms and 3 cools (which is critique) WARMS: I think that the Science classes in each grade are so fantastic. I love what they are doing with the high school next year and how the kids are reacting to it The x-classes are fantastic and my kids love it. COOLS: I think that the academic level needs to be a little bit better. Discipline in the school does need to be enforced more. Organization does need help so that administration isn't so stressed. All in all, it is their first year and I think that VT could go great places!!!!

The first year of VT is in the can! Go Squids! VT is a school formed by educators, for kids. The leaders are top and award winning (federal Blue Ribbon!) educators from Cedar Hill and Duncanville. . The theory is hire and nurture great teachers and the kids will benefit. (and they do!). That's not to say the school doesn't care about the students... to the contrary, it is the most loving environment you'll find! Other things about this school are unusual. The report cards aren't simple "A,B,C" grades, but a multi-page report itemized for each TEA element your child is supposed to learn. The school does *not* teach to the test. Much of the learning comes from doing "challenges" in lab type setting. There is a little "cramming" around test time, but much less than other schools we've been to. Will this method of teaching show up in test scores? I don't know, but the kids are happy and are learning. Time will tell. VT is still new and evolving. Broadcast communication and planning could be a little better. There is always room for improvement, but what they pulled off in their first year is amazing. We're looking forward to next year!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
