I have 3 children who attend Vaughn Elementary. I have been very pleased with the school environment and the majority of the teaching staff. My kids are happy to be attending Vaughn and I am pleased with the educational experience they receiving.

Vaughn has been wonderful for all three of my kids. I can't say enough great things about the teachers, they truly care about their students and the community. There are lots of opportunities for students who need additional help, but it is left up to the individual teacher to give advanced students the push they need. Some pull it off well, while others don't know how to handle a child that is potentially bored. I do however wish there was more parent involvement beyond conferences and after school plays, but that seems to be a community wide issue. Overall the school makes my children feel safe and loved while getting a solid education, which is most important to me.

Facilities are neat and clean.They try hard to be on top of security.Wow, what a great play yard they have.It's my opinion, through personal experience, that the school councilor is not on top of the job.She takes a very long time to get back to messages(4 wks)and she has a hard time locating test papers.My child's teacher is excellent.There are wonderful programs for delayed students and disabled students.However, the young highly capable students may not get the academics they are ready for.The PTA is a clique, good luck getting involved.A few are doing the job of many because they don't know how to delegate and share with the willing others.Watch out for end of day dismissal at this school.In a very small lobby too many parents gather while three halls of children empty into this area.The councilor tries to monitor it all.Get involved in your child's education.Read with your child daily.

Vaughn Elementary is a great school, coming from a parent of an 8 year old..School quality is something I looked for before moving to Gig Harbor. My son previously went to a montessori program school in Tacoma, WA and I was afraid that he would have a difficult time adjusting to a public school system. He had trouble in reading and math at his prior school. His teachers at Vaughn have really worked with him and he has improved tremondously! My son has taught me things I had forgotten and improved on his computer skills as well. Kudo's to Vaughn and it's staff! I'm one proud parent of my child going to Vaughn Elementary! Lisa Sanchez
