I do not hear much about the teachers, I hear that the kids are constantly disrupting the class and how the teachers are yelling. I hear about the whining going on, how the whiners do not understand anything, on the whining because so and so will not let me copy his or her paper. I do know the AVID teacher is well liked.
no, there is way too much lying and stealing going on. one cannot develop these virtues when there is way too much bullying going on, the teachers are screaming at the same students day after day, students not doing their work, copying off others, and then the student who is being copied or even shoved is the one to get punished.
This school is terrible and the health department should step in. Bathrooms, especially the boys are filthy, broken, no soap, feces on walls, no lights, no soap, and as of today, March 22, 2016 they are once again broken and flooding. Bugs in classrooms, not enough classroom space, no lockers, pushing and shoving, no respect at all.
This school hates parental involvement. Bullying is a big problem in this district. The staff has not support from the district. The school is run by a school board member who has served 20 years. In fact his home sits right in the middle of campus. (he gets to sell his property to the district)
My son had a problem during his first year at the middle school, but it was with other students, not the teachers. He would never let the staff know about it. I talked with the vice principal and things got better. This will be his second year in VMS and my daughter's third. They've been going to Venus all of their lives and can't imagine going anywhere else. Some of the teachers and coaches, especially, could use a lesson in etiquette and respect for their students, but overall, myself and my children are very happy here.
