    I am new at this school my child has gone to the vineyard Christian School and we decided to try fort Vernoy. We have heard great thongs. But the only thing so far is yes the office lady seemed kind of short. Not very welcoming. (

    Most of the teachers are great however I really don't care for Shirley who works in the office !! She is not a very kind or compassionate woman and seems very judgmental. I actually try and avoid her as much as possible.

    Full Day - 5 day Kindergarten makes for a great advantage over other 1/2 day Kindergarten classes. Our daughter has greatly excelled in math and reading and Mr. Holden (the current Kindergarten teacher) is excellent in working with the children; helping them to grow emotionally and educationally to the most of their abilities. The teachers administrators & parents at Fort Vannoy are all very involved and truly care about the children attending here. This may be a small rural school but its standards style and qualifications are one of a larger city school!

    Full Day - 5 day Kindergarten is awesome. Our daughter has excelled to the top of the classby having the Full Day program being piloted at Fort Vannoy. The teachers and administrators are excellent and truly care about the students.

    Students come first at Fort Vannoy Elementary. My kids attended this school and were well prepared for the next step. They received one-on-one attention when needed and they were offered enrichment courses to challenge their abilities. Fort Vannoy has outstanding academics. The staff is highly qualified energetic creative and friendly. The principal is outgoing interactive with students parents and the staff. There have been many improvements in the small rural school under his guidance. He is a superior leader. Parent involvement is outstanding at Fort Vannoy. The community comes together at this school for the Arts for music programs for school beautification and to celebrate the excellence in academics that Fort Vannoy had built its reputation on. This is an award winning school and receives public recognition thru news reports for the amazing staff students and community.
