Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I grew up here and it was great, I know I was a mini student but all the teachers were nice and we learned what we needed to learn. Plus you make friends quickly since everyone mostly knows each other. GREAT school!

This school is way more involved with their children, I can't believe it received less stars than Howe. I have not been very impressed with Howe over the last couple of years. I student teach in Van Alstyne and my son goes to Howe. Hopefully I will be able to get him transferred, as I would rather him attend Van Alstyne from a parental and educational point of view.

After our 1st child has been in this school for one year, my husband and I have been very impressed with this school. He and I went to a nearby school district with very high academic scores, but little personal involvement/care for each student. I feel this school is beyond satisfactory in it's academic approach and we love the personal attention we can see and receive from the principal on down through the entire school and into each classroom.

The elementary school use to be better. This year many things have declined. One thing they need to step up is there out classes. They also pay teachers horribly

Very low parent involvement and there are hardly any quality academic programs or extracurricular activities. I pulled my child out of this school.

VAISD has great academic programs. Their extracurricular activities include musice, art and basketball for 1st grade and up. There is PTA and parent involvement is strongly encouraged. VAISD is a very good school, in my opinion.
