Most teachers are great at teaching their curriculum and understanding how to work with these young adults.
Many form connections between these students which makes them better understand how to work with the child.
While students should be given work to better their skills, a few of the core classes have problems with handing out too much work. The teachers mean well, but I have seen way too many tired faces of children, and it makes me question this "quality education" when I hear that students normally sleep in the early hours of night due to the amount of work they recieve.
In Vanguard, you can assure your children are taught to fear and distrust authority. This is very hard to fix, especially when they get older. Other parents were not so lucky with catching this on time, and I fear for their relationship with their children.
This school is similar to the Lord of the Flies novel.
Children are pit against eachother and this will often result in serious confrontations. Rarely do they turn violent, but it sure can get awkward when you can feel the tension between the students involved especially if you're being called to the school for a conference.
The staff have been known to lie to students about having to take certain classes, and often force certain students to take unneeded classes. This can and will cause children to distrust and lie to anyone in a position of power.
i am a student here at vanguard academy and i have been here for 8 years and it's an outstanding school and never been bullied, if your being bullied the will take care of it right away. The teachers will do anything to help you in any type of situation. The staff and administrators are really kind to both parents and students. Also, they have several academic organizations like student council, Bible club, Robotics, NJHS, NHS, decoration committee, and the volt team. If your having second thoughts of your children joining this school then stop having those thoughts and apply him/her to Vanguard Academy
Not what I expected. First year was ok. Second year was horrible!! Two of my children's Teachers were mean with them and very disrespectful with us the parents. Talked about it to the principal and she said It was TRUE!!! That this issue was out of her control!!!! The teachers' behavior was nothing new for her. OMG!!!
So my child started prek this year at vanguard and is half way through i love how his teacher is very sweet and lets parents know everyday how their child did in class.Yes my son had a lil problem in the beginning with one student but i immediatley told the teacher and it was corrected theres going to be bullying everywhere but at least this school is more one to one with kids not as a regular public school. I dont regret my decision because everyday my son looks forward to going to school he loves it that's because he was never away from me never in a daycare or headstart. I also love that they have a little prayer before they eat it gives them a chance to be thankful for what they have and yes field trips parents either pay full or join in the fundraiser but i also dont mind that at all because i believe my son will have a better advantage at his education. As by far i have no complaints seeing my son happy makes me happy and as parents thats all we want!!!
