    I went to this school and this school is bad. They teachers are okay but the staff that is suppose to help you with a situation dont help at all. The pick sides and then talk about you to others. D O N O T S E N D Y O U C H I L D T O V I L L A G E A C A D E M Y

    Extremely low student achievement and high turnover rate for teachers. No teacher wants to stay at this school because of the culture that is established which is one of dictatorship. Less than 20% of all students are meeting proficiency. Sad to say but the principal intimidates teachers with U ratings; teachers are expected to forget about their entire lives and live solely for the school. Instead of focusing on instruction more attention is placed on bulletin boards and school events.

    Stay away from the school both teachers and parents. Do not send your child here. Lots of fights in the school and the principal has no idea of running a school. She spends her time micromanaging and making the teachers' lives miserable instead of trying to find ways to improve her school. Send her back to the principal's academy.
