    I was very disenchanted with this school. Most of the faculty were unwilling to work with children who fell out of the norm. More variety is needed besides a weak music program. Foreign languages or art classes could be such options. Teachers need to keep their politics out of the classroom environment. More leeway must be given to the children during their recess play.

    The entire staff at BVE is dedicated to seeing every student succeed. They challenge the kids in all academics & encourage them to learn and achieve their personal best. The collective efforts from the staff the parents and the kids create a fantastic learning environment. Great school!!

    Wonderful school. Music program is awsome. The music teacher works very hard with the students. They put on a wonderful concert for the parents at the end of the year. The music teacher even gives guitar lessons on her own time to those students interested. She is very dedicated.

    Vossbeck has been a good school always working to improve where improvement is needed it has an amazing PE program with many extras offered. The music program needs improvement kind of boring and kids seem to not enjoy music overall a great school.
