    The principal and staff sincerely care about the students and provide what they need to learn grow and feel great about themselves. Being with like students the child learns at the speed with which they can. The teachers are always there to help. The smaller size of the school is important. The school offers as much as they can with the money they have to spend. I love Vaughn and my daughter did very well there. I know we were lucky that she was able to attend Vaughn and am always gratefull for the chance she had there. Everyone is fantastic there. The new library is a huge plus and the alumni association is great. Thank you
