    This is for the parents that weren't happy with V.S.E. They only have two Preschool classes (AM & PM) and by law can only have 20 children in each class making it 80 students in the P-K program that's why there is a waiting list. It is the school/districts choice NOT YOURS. If you just moved here then of coarse you would be put on the waiting list.

    I am not impressed at all with this school. The registration process is extremely disorganized and when my husband took our daughter to register they said they were full so she would have to wait to attend preschool. That is not their decision to be made! I tried on several occasions to contact Dr Hughes the superintendent with no luck. I am still awaiting a call but am very dissatisfied with this school I will be looking into sending her to another school district or private school.

    I Love this school! The teachers and staff are friendly. Some of the best teachers in the world work at Virginia Smith. I have two children who have been to this school & I had a wonderful experience both times (a total of 6 years). Yeah the principal seems tough but she is really a sweety so don't let her fool you.

    The principal is slightly unfriendly but everyone else is first-rate! Mrs. McBroom Mrs. Talley and Mrs. Willams are the best teachers in the school! Mrs. Hancock is a great PE teacher and your kid will fall in love with her. Although the music teacher had a hard outer core she is quite a good teacher.
