My daughter liked her kindergarten teacher and was excited about going to school. My areas of concern was no computer class or weekly library class for kindergarten. The school is heavily populated with ELL students and I feel the majority of time and resources go towards these students and English speaking students are left aside. The playground is very sad for an elementary school and needs updating/additions. The principal is reserved and passive. He does listen to parent concerns but isn't proactive in dealing with troubling situations.

Our children have attended Vega for a couple of years now. We've been very happy with the staff. My daughter adores her teachers, as well as Mr. Forsyth and Mrs. Cottam (the principal and vice principal). Nurse Beth has gone out of her way to help us out more than once. Everything seems to be well organized and run smoothly. They seem to truly care about the student's well being, and education both on academic and social skills. Parent involvement is a little low, mostly because most of the parents in the area (like myself) have to work full time. I nearly cried because I had to miss my daughter's Kindergarten graduation, which was held during school hours. But I think the majority of parents do support the school even though they cannot attend every event, or volunteer in the classroom. Overall we've been very impressed with Vega!

The new principal has made a huge impact and is super engaged in the success of the students.

My son attended Vega for kindergarten and 1st grade. The principal and vice principal were fantastically involved and caring. We didn't care for his kindergarten experience after realizing that his teacher was more interested in having us medicate him for ADD than she was in communicating with us what we could do to help him. His 1st grade teacher was extremely thoughtful and attentive, giving him additional time before and after school. She was so patient and giving and we genuinely appreciated her efforts but after some additional tested to rule out other possible causes for his being behind, we were told in a meeting we needed to have him evaluated for ADD. In hind sight, I believe we enrolled him too soon and should have held him out for a year but due to No Child Left Behind, we were told holding him back would not be beneficial for him (them?). We ended up home schooling this past year and he has excelled tremendously. ADD has not been an issue and I'm grateful we did it. In the end, I believe the school itself is pretty good although I was alarmed at the continuous insistence that we throw a pill at the problem and the school lunches are to be avoided at all costs.

Mr. Forsyth is an AMAZING principal, his staff is great too. A HUGE improvement since the old principal left. He is engaged, approachable and the kids love him. Teachers are awesome, friendly to parents - many facebook friend parents in their class and build relationships that are strong. My disappointment is more with the district. This past year they brought in ESL classes from around the district which overcrowded our school - 5th grade in portables. This coming year 13-14 will add even more ESL. Parent envolvement is low, funds are low and playground is pathetic. PTA is a few stay at home moms making all the decisions and spending seems frivilous (when our kids need better playgrounds versus a PTA board trip to Austin conventions). The school is now a Title One - over 40% are on free or reduced lunch. This is significantly impacting the feel, disipline issues and demographs. Selling to move out of district...will greatly miss Essential 55 which has been a very positive way to focus on character..and will miss staff, teachers and our friends we have had there since kinder several years ago.

This year Vega has a new principal. He is amazing and has turned this school around. The staff IS amazing. My child is in third grade and has been enrolled since kinder. His second grade teachers were outstanding. This is an example of a school that headed in the right direction!

Teachers seem focused on moving children on to the next grade level rather than truly focusing on improving student's performance, rather than simply ensuring he "makes it through". My child has average grades, and his teachers have communicated to me where he can improve (a plus), but he has not thrived the way I think he could had he attended a nearby elementary as my older child did. Office staff and nurse are super friendly; nothing but great things to say about them. But the downsides-- principal is alarmingly fake and does not truly care about the individual students she is responsible for. She cares about the grade the school receives from the state, and that is it. I agree, asst. principal is fantastic and involved and should be offered the position. The lunches are disgusting and we send his lunch to ensure he'll actually eat. The teachers and volunteers in cafeteria are like drill sergeants and my child is not a badly behaved student. Maybe I'm crazy for expecting my child to be engaged in a fun learning environment that focuses on individual, educational growth in a Tx public school, but I know it is possible from past experience- just not the reality at Vega.

I had heard lots of things regarding Vega before my daughter started school there. Everything I heard was incorrect. The front staff has always been extremely kind with great customer service. I am a Kindergarten mom and so I ask a ton of questions and they are always eager to help and answer my questions. The teachers are great and use enough discipline to keep everything running smoothly without being overbearing and rude to the kids. I am impressed with the curriculum they are covering and overall, very pleased with Vega. The principal and Assistant Principal are wonderful. I think if you truly get involved with your child's school, then you really learn what the school is all about. Vega cares about the kids and offer programs not available at other schools.

My kids have been going here for 3-4 years now. I am thinking of moving out of this school zone because of this school. Think twice before moving to this school zoned area. I have a full post on yahoo when you look up this school, this stie did not allow room for what needs to be said.

My Daughter is a current Vega Student, we are taking the summer months to list and sell our house so that we can be rid of this school. The sole emphasis is placed on preparing for the tests. The lunch program is nauseating, the extracurricular programs are poorly thought out. The school and adjoining park has developed a very 'thuggish' atmosphere with which the administration and police seem unconcerned. Students with behavioral problems are coddled and tolerated at the expense of good students. Think twice before enrolling.

My children have been here for 3 years. I loved this school. The teachers were wonderful. The support staff was great also. Its a shame we had to move. I couldn't ask for a better school. They did a lot of fun after school activities. The picnic in the park was lots of fun. They all star celebrations were great with the No Mam band playing. The kids loved it! My daughter learned so much being here. Her grades went up as well. Im gonna miss VEGA!

The school was not so great, but I don't blame teachers. I blame the school system in general and the 'No Child Left Behind Act' which happens to leave all children behind and only sounds good. I removed my children and placed them in home school. Parents should really stop looking at the smiles on the teacher's faces and enquire about the curriculum.

Vega Elementary is a great place to work and have my child attend. He is nurtured by an outstanding staff that takes the time to challenge him and accent the positives he possesses.

The school is excellent. The teachers and principal really take the time to get to know the students as well as the parents. The foundation the children receive is solid and will stand throughout the childs education.

I have ben very please with Vega. The teachers all appear excited and eager for the children to learn. They are very responsive to parent questions and concerns. The principal is warm and concerned about the children's academic and social success.

Terrible School. The playground was only made for kindergarten. The children either get too cold or too hot in the portables. The pickup and drop-off line is too slow because it is being run by children and a lot of people driving suv's drive dangerously. The front office person can't work the telephone well.

I am a parent and class size and community are important to me. Vega has small class size about 20 students per teacher and class mother. Great about parents participation w/background check. Great about parent teacher conferences and involvement by parents. Provide lots of information about activities and class projects. Loved the school and the McKinney area and the school.

We were only in McKinney for a year, but I truly enjoyed Vega Elementary and all of its staff. My children were in 3rd, and 5th grades and they also had a great year. The teachers kept me well informed throughout the year and provided extra help whenever needed.

The student ratio is excellent. My child is able to get the attention that she needs one on one. She gets help in area that she is behind in. The principal is very helpful and friendly.

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.
