I am a gifted child that attended this school for a while, and I could not stand it. The curriculum is extremely poor, and they were teaching things I learned in the fourth grade at a past school! The other kids were also very rude, I do not use profanity, but I was pretty much the only kid that didn't. If you have any standards or values, don't send your child here! I have been to tons of schools and Vinson is by far the worst I have ever attended. There is only one good staff member, and that is the councilor, he is the only person at Vinson that is kind to students. If you have a gifted child, please send them somewhere else, Vinson has no programs suitable for them, I made wayyyyy over a hundred in every class because nothing was challenging. I hope my review influences you to never allow your child to step foot in this school...ever!
I am so impressed with all the work that was put into the school last year. The principal is good to work with and I was impressed with the teachers. My child was a part of the band program (over 100 students involved) and I must say it is better than most high school bands!
After the teachers, parents, and students went in an and redid basicly the whole school it is soo much more comfortabke and clean. Before i hated even coming to school but now that they're taking more contorll over the school i love it there
Vinson MS has a first rate arts program. In a school of 270 students over 100 are involved in the choir program and 80 are involved in the band program. Test scores are excellent, and getting better every year. I wish that parents would get even more involved than they already are. The school reactivated their chapter of the National Junior Honor Society last fall and inducted their first class in early June!
This School Is A Great School To Send Your Children To...Only Teachers Can Sometimes be a little bossy here,that is sometimes what the kids need!...The Principal and Guidence Councilor is Great!They Are A Great Help To this school!We Also Have After School Tutoring for kids who are having trouble,and we have raze it is a club with kids who are against drugs.There are very few fight at this school,but when the children do get into fights they are greatly punished for it.If your child like choir Vinson has one of the best choirs around,and they will have so much fun in it!I'd storngly Suggest you send your child to this school!
