    I had 2 children in this school. We moved to get away from this school. My son is gifted and mildly autistic. One of his teachers use to put him in a closet. They told me if I didn't medicate him for ADHD they were going to kick him out even though his Dr. said he didn't have ADHD. When I told them he was to smart for the work they were giving him which is why he was acting up they told me he wasn't smart because of his behavior. I moved and my son is now in the gifted program and doing much better. I suggest you don't go to this school if you value your child's education!!!!!

    I have 2 daughter's that are in their second years at Vineland. My experience has been overall FANTASTIC. The principal staff and teachers are all amazing! We love Vineland!

    My son and stepson both attended this school. I say attended because we moved just to get out of the school district. If your child is smart or different then this is NOT the place to send them. Both of them were labeled with psychological issues and I was politely told I needed to medicate my son for being hyper even though his Dr says he does not have ADHD. So they sent him home every chance they got put him in ESE classes where he began hitting and crying. Still I was relived because he stopped coming home with bruises...he said his teacher hurt him...which the school denied. Then I met a middle school student that used to have her as a teacher and told me abusive horror stories of how she was treated! The school refuses to do lice checks. Has teachers who are so burned out and unhappy my step son comes home stressed out from the teacher yelling at him. They have a wonderful front desk staff and a few wonderful teachers but overall they have steadily sunk over the last 3 years and we are happy to be rid of this school and so are our kids!

    My boys attended Vineland for 3 years. If your children need extra help look elsewhere they won't get it here. One of my children was placed in a class where the standards were so far below grade level he played most of the time and the other was just passed along. The 2nd one would get 15 spelling words a week and even though h e would never get more than 2 or 3 correct the class would move on and leave him behind. My concerns were completely ignored. We have since moved and they both now attend Toledo Blade in North Port. The ESE teacher there is a god send. She is very experienced and no nonsense. She requires the children make a sincere effort perform as best they possibly can. She really understands that she is teaching them life skills and if they need to work harder to achieve she makes them believe they can do it. Vineland convinced my children they were not able or expected to achieve. I will probably have to have one of them repeat 2nd grade to make up for all the time lost at Vineland

    Beware that this school no longer offers recess to the children. Bad news for little boys that need to run. Very disappointed in this new trend with schools I think it is counterproductive.

    My experience with Vineland has been poor overall. The office staff has been rude and very unproffessional. The principal and assistant principal intimidate the children and do not communicate well with parents at all.The teachers seem to be more interested in socializing with eachother then paying attention to the children in their class. Some of the teachers are very good and well educated to teach elementary however some of the teachers just couldn't be bothered. The experience my family has had with Vineland has been very disappointing . This school does not seem to care about the students at all. They do not encourage parent involvement and would rather the parents be left in the dark about what goes on at this school. I would not reccomend this school to anyone. My children no longer attend and their new school is light years ahead of Vineland in every aspect.

    My boys love this school. We moved to Rotonda from New England and Florida has a very bad reputation as far as education goes so I was worried my kids would be bored at school because they'd be ahead of the other kids. I was pleasantly surprised to find not only were they not ahead but they were being challenged to catch up! Love Vineland.

    My children have been going to Vineland for several years and I could not be more pleased with them. They thoroughly love the school and the teachers are wonderful. the school is the reason that we stay in the Rotonda area.

    Excellent school. Fantastic teachers throughout evrty grade who are commited to their students and routinely go beyond the call of duty. A very good principle who commands a 'tight ship' and ensures a safe environment for children as well as instilling a sense of community. All FCAT and NRT results are good and there is also an excellent program for gifted students. Music art sports are available for all. Parents and grandparents take a very active part in both their children's progress as well as the school itself. Music computers art and spo

    I had one son in pre-k and another son in k. The parent involvment at this school is excellent. There is always something going on at this school. My sons were evaluated for speech and I felt they handled everything very professional and in a timely fashion. They will soon be in a class at the school to help them with this obstacle. My boys always rave about the media art and p.e. classes. I enjoy them going to this school we will hope to find a school in equal value! The teachers are priceless!

    This is the best school my child has ever attened. You could not ask for a more invovled staff or parental involment. When you are at the school you almost feel as though you have know every staff member your whole life. They treat each child with the respect and compassion they deserve. It is almost like my child is going to a second family. The academic quality of this school is far superior to any other he has attended.

    My child has attended Vineland for 2 years now. Starting in kindergarden now he's in first grade. From what I've seen the teachers he's had are working together to progress him to the next level. They are well aware of what the prior grade has taught & they pick it up & send him forward. They are very willing to involve parents & ask that if any parent has a problem to let them know so they can try to resolve any problems. I have been very happy with his teachers so far.
