    My 2 kids have been attending Vine ES for 1 yr now and they have improved so much in every category compare to when they were attending Logan ES. The teachers at Vine are so helpful and somehow they are doing a grea job because I am amased on how much my daughters have learned. The only little problem I have is with LA's Best they need to be more organized for when parents pick up their children. It will be very helpfull if they keep all the sign in logs at the entrance of the building and have 2 people there one having the parents sign and the other calling through the walkie talkie to send the student down instead of having to go to different classes to find my daughters. Other than this Vine ES is the best school that my children have attended. Keep up the good work teachers and staff. I appreciate everyone including staff from LA's best because they are so nice and polite.

    When they changed their principal at the start of school year 2008-2009 a lot of changes mostly positive happened. He started a monthly recognition program that just motivated my 3 kids to excel in their studies and behavior. They have had musical concerts math & spelling bee contests which I think are great steps towards molding wholistic educated individuals. I guess the space and funds support are what hinders for sports program to flourish. However having taken small steps on the academic base that dream of being athletically rounded may not be far off. I am just a happy and contented parent.

    focus more on sports rather than academics and students' behavior. So if your kids are not athletes this is not the school for your kid.

    My child is new to this school and by far I have encountered positive experiences with the staff. I have had a discrepancy or two and I must admit that the principal and many others are very professional helpful and on top of things. They go out of their way to get parents involved and they do a great job in keeping parents informed. My child has never been happier and that tells me they're doing something right. It makes me proud to say my child attends Vine St. Elementary.

    I thought that this school was good and I learned a lot from the teachers. It was also very fun. I recommend this school for any kid.

    Academic program is good. Music program is impressive and it's art. However sports is almost non existant as well as other extracurricular activities. Parent involvement is fair.
