    I have had 4 children in this school since 1999 one has graduated another will this year. I love this school the teachers are always willing to help the staff is also. This school does not put up with all the bullying and taunting they have been in the top 5 of the best schools in the Philadelphia school district and have met the standers of the AYP since my children have been attending Vare Elementary. It is a school that is there for their kids and their family members. One I am very proud of and recommend to anyone in the South Philadelphia area.
