There is a lack of support and training for the clubs here. We have to practically pay for all the expenses of all the activities our clubs do. Besides that, there are quite a few teachers who can't care less about the learning process of their students. Overall, The Village School has a good academic program, but if you are looking for a school that does not rip you off of your money, this isn't the one.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some teachers are great, they care about their students and want them to learn, but others just don't bother, teaching.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Most teachers don't realize that you have other classes, so you get assigned overwhelming amounts of homework constantly throughout the year, which makes your work life and social life really unbalanced, you can't have a life, just homework, homework, homework...

When I first joined the school, I felt good, the teachers were nice and helpful. I thought "Great School", but as I went through the year, friends were having mental breakdowns because of the huge amount of work given. Teachers become lazy and don't want to help you, and it ends up you teaching yourself the classes because of the poor explanation of teachers. TVS selects many of the teachers based on their diploma, not based on how good they actually are. Of course, there are a few amazing teachers, but the ratio between the good and the bad is very unbalanced. On top of this, the school spirit is very sad, there is not much excitement coming from the students, nor the teachers which make the atmosphere boring and dull, probably because everyone is overwhelmed with work.... Overall I do not recommend this school, because of its dullness and lack of help with teachers, I have been here for 6 months, and I already want to leave...

Money grabbing school! Lack of support for newcomers. Teachers for small children are not trained well. Their marketing trick that have individualized curriculum is nonsense.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Teachers have no training for this and there are only a few support people available. We did get a lot of good help from one of them but it's inconsistent.

Develops character: Agree


- a
The principals are good but without good leadership at the top, they will leave as soon as they can.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
There are a lot of good teachers here. They are hoping the crazy head leaves so they can stay. Until she does, everyone lives in fear.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The teachers in the school know all their students really well. They know what the child needs help with and what he/she is excels in.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
I feel that children should be taught in school and not be burdened too much at home. Students should be given homework in higher grade levels but not when they are in the elementary stage.
