    I can't say enough about the teachers and what a great school we are fortunate enough to have for our children. A great environment in which my daughter has thrived.

    I have 2 children in the VO and it is wonderful. You hear a lot of bad things about schools today but not here. The teachers are great and really care about the kids. The principal knows all of his kids and really takes an interest making sure everyone does well. I actually took the kids out of a private school to attend here as the education they are receiving is far superior! (The private school we moved the children from is a well known and respected school system) Look at other schools and ask parents what they think. You won't find happier parents anywhere. Not to mention how much the parents are involved here. It is an amazing site.
