This is a very new charter school (2 years old) and they are still working out the kinks in all areas. I think if you are willing to put in an extra 2+ hours of "homeschooling" your child after school then you might be happy with the results of your child's education. But it is hard to put in that many hours since they have an extended school day that lasts until 4p.m. The school has a GREAT vision but they do not have the required personnel or funds to execute that vision. If your child has an IEP or 504 plan, do not send your child to school here. Their Special Services director is a joke and they do not have the resources or the desire to help your child succeed.

The school looks like a prison. The location is horrible. There is nothing special whatsoever. I wouldn't recommend attending, considering there are better schools in the area.

Best school i have ever attended. Theres no fights that are crazy serious. My self esteem has been better. Ive made better friends. The teachers care about the students. But i dont like that some teachers favor some other students. And some of many class mates dont know when to act right when we are in class or always gossiping about this and that. But overall amazing school.

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!
