    This is our second year at VB. I had posted concerns in my review last year about communication and I'm happy to report that I do not have the same issues this year! My son is thriving under the structure and rigor of his first grade teacher (it was a big adjustment though from K!) Vinson Bynum has a fantastic staff supportive parents and a great community feel. I'm so glad we chose to stay at this school! My son's readin has really taken off this year!
