As a past student of this school I feel that I wasted my time. While yes there are few teachers that care and do teach effectively there are also teachers who give busy work and don't teach very much. I attended this academy for more that 3 years and every year was a change in administration and rules. I feel that I did learn a lot in a couple classes, but in others not so much.
Pros are that college is a top matter here. Student do learn a lot about how the college system works and how to apply and register. As well as dual classes are offered to give students college hours. As well as tutoring to pass exams such as the TSI.
Cons would be the unprofessional staff. Teachers and staff would often be very rude to students.
The building could use some work.. The library could use some new books, computers in the lab are old. Cafeteria food is cafeteria food so bleh. Not the best for being the primary campus.
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.
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!!!
