Between both of my boys we've been at the school for 6 years total and have been overall very happy with the school, principal, teachers, and staff. Any questions or issues we've had were all handled quickly and appropriately. PTA does a lot of fun and FREE activities for the school, and the Grateful Dads are a fun presence on campus. Communication is consistent, and most importantly open. LISD has made a lot of changes over the past few years to the curriculum design, and this school has done a great job of embracing the new culture in the district with lessons and classes focusing more on being driven from the inside out in line with the Strategic Design concepts rolled out.

We just moved to Lewisville this summer from one of the top rated school districts in Texas - Highland Park ISD. I have to say that Vickery has already impressed us in many ways. Our 2nd grader has Ms O'Brien who is great with the kiddos! Our 3rd grader has Ms Blaylock who has also been very pleasant! The carpool lines are very organized and easy to understand. Principal Cheatham seems genuinely interested in the lives of her student body, and is really good at communicating things to parents as well. We LOVE the diversity here, and our girls are experiencing exactly what they need to grow into well adjusted middle schoolers, high schoolers, and adults. They can hardly stop talking about their "great day" at pickup time. Thank you Vickery for being a solid example that other elementary schools could learn a few things from.

pfff, parents with issues stop posting rubbish. School is not meant to be fun but educational, if you want your kids to have fun take them to Disney. No human is naturally enjoying authority and school is about authority. Stop getting in the way of educators you have no clue how to be a teacher. Our (US) education system is one of the worst (exception Uganda) in the world just because parents have too much authority over teachers. If a teacher is not good kick him/her out but stop interfering with education just because you can... after all some of you accept that common sense is not common...

I agree with the principal being a bully and yes this school looks nice inside and out but it lacks any kind of structure. I get dirty/weird looks from the office staff especially the principal, rude phone calls and emails, and if you have questions about anything be prepared to be talked to like you are a complete idiot. I've had that happen on numerous occasions and watched staff do it to many others. My son is dyslexic and his teacher wants to hold him back as of 5 weeks ago, but she has NOT returned my calls or responded to any of the 6 emails i've sent. This school will NOT excuse any absence without a doctors note, so if you are like me and can't afford to pay for a doctor visit every time your child is ill this is NOT the school for you, you will be a prime target for the principal for truancy. She has no sympathy for tragedies like a close family member dying, or being diagnosed with cancer.

Anything negative from prior reviews is unfortunately true. No leadership or positive, productive leadership whatsoever. The principal is hateful and pray your child going into their first year of school here doesn't have any kind of learning disability because he/she will not get the help or time from a teacher who really wants to help educate a child/parent on how to still have a successful school career despite having a LD. This school doesn't deserve even half a star. STAFF IS JUDGEMENTAL AND FAR FROM CARING OR HELPFUL.

I have 4 children. I would not recommend this school. LISD needs to wake up and realize that the principal is a bully and holds a hostile work environment for the staff. They have no structure for students with disabilities. DO NOT send your children there. The principal worked in the prison system before she began her education career.

I just wanted to say what a great job the staff and faculty do at Vickery! My son was blessed to have amazing teachers especially Ms. W. who taught him 1st and 2nd grade. She was amazing and really encouraged him academically. She was also great about communicating with me as well, regarding my son's progress. Even though he transferred to another school, he loves and misses Vickery.

I completely disagree with the parent that says teachers and principal don't care. We went to this school and a different school. My family would LOVE to be back at this school. The teachers are wonderful. They do more for the students and on their own time too. The communication between teacher, parent, principal and PTA is the best out of all the schools we have been to. They really care about the students not just to succeed but their well being. We have never had any problems. Keep it up. This is a great school.

My son has been at Vickery a few years now and loves it. He has amazing teachers and they really care about the quality of education they provide. I have to say the PTA does a great job with all of fun events they put on for the kids and the school. Lots of parents get involved to help out as well like the Scholastic Book Fair and Grateful Dads to name a few. The office staff is very helpful and the principals are terrific!

I have to disagree with the statement saying that the teachers don't care. My child has been their 5 years and I have only seen good things come from her and other students. You need to relize they are in school for 8 hours it is the parents responsibility to help their child to deal with homework and teach their child how to pace themselves. The school is only prepairing them for middle and high school. It's a mean world we live in so we have to teach these kids to be stong at a very young age.

I agree w/the parent below(post on Oct. 18,2011). I don't think this school even deserves 1 star. Many other parents w/children attending Marjory Vickery Elementary and I unanimously agree that there is incompetence in this school's leadership. Lack of accountability, zero monitoring of teachers in class.Parents have NO voice at this school but are instead unfairly held responsible and blamed for inadequacies of the school! I've never witnessed such denial from a school before. Leadership here has got to get real and wake up and start LISTENING to parents!!

Posted October 18, 2011

My children have attended Vickery for several years now and every year proves more disappointing than the last.Many of the teachers clearly do not embrace/accept that every child is unique,and it seems like very few are passionate about teaching.After all these years I still haven't witnessed the teachers/faculty being observed during classroom instruction which leads me to wonder if administrators are assessing/monitoring the quality or conduct of teachers on this campus.This campus dropped from TEA "Recognized" to "Academically Acceptable" since last school year, so science has tragically been omitted & the curriculum this year is tailored to raise standardized test scores BUT at the expense of creativity & imagination. As a result, my kids & many other students are extremely overloaded with homework & are feeling stressed and already approaching burnout for the year! How unfortunate that it is the children(and thus, the parents) must pay the price because of the direct result of, in my opinion, one simple problem: the school's poor leadership.Absence of strong leadership has caused mismanaged priorities, lack of quality control regarding teachers & staff & a tense atmosphere.

The PTA does an awesome job of getting parents involved with school activities! The staff and faculty are great and really care about the students.

Great, ethnically diverse and balanced school. Excellent staff w/ high standards and family values. LEAP program available for gifted/talented, and help available for those that lag behind. Teachers are completely invested in their childrens' success, socially and academically. The best thing is the lack of elitism and entitlement prevalent in so many Flower Mound area schools. I believe an environment such as Vickery will leave their children much more equipped to be responsible, effective members of society than they would at some other "privileged" schools. I put my child in this school by choice, and have not regretted it one day. He has positively blossomed in every regard. I wish, however, more parents would get their priorities straight and set aside even two hours each month to participate in their school community... but the school cannot be held responsibile for parents having to work harder and longer in this economy.

My son just finished first grade, and had a wonderful teacher. I am completely satisfied with the school and have had great interactions with all levels of staff.

Great school. Moved here from another state almost 2 years ago, could not be happier with the diveristy and the education my son is receiving at this school. Great teachers, clean, new school.

I think Vickery is a good school. The teachers go above and beyond what they need to do to help the kids learn. As for the Principal and Asst. Prin. they are the same way. They allways have time to talk to you and never make you feel rushed. They give you ideas on ways to help the kids out. We really love this school.

We were rezoned from an exemplary school to Vickery once it was built in 2003. The first year they had lots of kinks to work out - new faculty/administration, new kids, new classrooms, but eventually it smoothed out. I will say it is a diversified group of kids that attend Vickery, but my two children have really enjoyed their classmates, teachers and curriculum over the past years.

Vickery Elementary is a diverse school where the needs of all children are met. My son and daughter have had an excellent experience with their teachers and learning for the last three years. There is a great balance between academics and extra-curricular activities. The administration is outstanding and very approachable. I feel blessed to have my children at Vickery Elementary.

Posted June 5, 2005

The academic are typical for the LISD area, nothing to challenge nor creative. Children seem to be happy and enjoy the learning experience. I am not impressed at all with the academic challenge this school presented in 2004/2005. What are they learning, well pretty much the basics. These children are from diverse background which is great for social skills building. Art! what is that? These children need to be exposed a little more to art and FUN!!! I never felt comfortable enough to participate as a parent. I asked on several occasion if they needed help in the front office, classrooms ect and there was one teacher who said yes and she is leaving this year. The school is okay and I hope things improve.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
