    Love this school! Teachers and principal are responsive and caring. My kids love school here. I will mention one thing about the other reviewer...children are going to hear bad words at school regardless of what school they are in. It's just life unfortunately.

    It is ok but not the best . One of the things is that I have heard my children hear bad words from 4th and 5th graders...

    I am a teacher at Vichy and I love this school! I have worked at 4 school districts in California (due to my husband's job). This is by a leap the best school. The most dedicated hard working child centered professional teachers (in my opinion )) work here. The parent involvement is wonderful and appreciated. My children will go here when they enter Kinder. and I would rec. it to any parent. Come and observe the classrooms we welcome you. Stop by the front office to check in. Sincerely Sara Johnson (4th. grade)

    Vichy is a true jewel in the Napa School district.Continually scoring well with a dedicated group of teachers commited to the students. Despite all the budget cuts band is still offered and the school has a decent library. My children thrived in this environment.
