This is a fast paced learning environment, focused on character development and core knowledge. My 01st and 04th grader are engaged throughout their structured day. Still time to forge friendships with friends and teachers and have a little fun too. Kids are taught respect and discipline and kindness to each other, you won’t find too much bullying going on here. Every moment is focused on learning from day one which includes weekly quizzes in most subjects, a fair but manageable amount of homework and a few extra credit activities if your student chooses to participate. Homework is not regimented daily - there are many days there is a reduced amount and I love that there is homework time at the end of school based around flexi pickup times (30 minute after school end to pick up) so that your student can complete most of their homework before pick up and there’s a supervising teacher on hand for questions. I LOVE that they wear a uniform and that teachers also have a conservative business dress code which makes a difference. We’re in our second year and so far so good. Our family of four is happy with our choice. We feel it’s a great foundation to set your kids up well for the rest of their lives. We will assess as we go along and if we move (military) or choose to switch school for any reason, we know this basic standard of education and environment will stay with our kids and pay dividends in their future. As far as the teachers - we’ve been part of a few schools and I’ve NEVER seen a group of more dedicated educators - The Vanguard expectations are high and the pay is low so you know that these teachers are here for the right reasons and because they choose to be - it shows! Thanks Vanguard - we’re glad we found you.

I fell in love with this school from the moment I read their website; even more so after I attended an information night. I was even a little arrogant, wondering why every parent wasn’t clamoring to send their kids to one of the best schools in the city. I recommended it to other parents in a heartbeat. Alas, it fell off of my pedestal-hard. My experience is only with the elementary (K-6) portion. [They changed the name now so that the whole school (K-12) is The Vanguard School.] The best comparison I can think of for the way the elementary school is run is the military. Students are told to sit up straight, stand tall, fold hands on their desks, don’t touch walls when walking, pay attention immediately, don’t talk out of turn, etc. Everything is structured a certain way and scheduled-without a lot of flexibility for any individual learning needs a student may have. Students wear uniforms. They teach using Direct Instruction, saying commands and words that the kids are expected to react to/repeat immediately. Sometimes the teacher is going a mile a minute. They have high moral/character expectations, and a behavior system consisting of punishment in the form of losing recess time. They have 3 recesses! I really like their curriculum (Core Knowledge). The students are placed in different groups for reading, math and spelling based on their ability. And I love the fact that kids can go all the way from K-12th grade at the same school with the same classmates. I thought this school would work for my kids, but I am sad (even heartbroken) to say I was proven wrong. If your child thrives on structure, is relatively obedient, and is a “typical” learner, then I think this school should work well for them. However, independent, defiant, gifted and/or mentally “challenged” learners may not thrive in this environment.

This school is not for everyone. But for the child who loves learning and is willing to be pushed beyond what they ever thought they could do, it's great. My kindergartener enjoys school and has never complained about the workload which is a lot. He is extremely proud of what he has learned and accomplished. He often tells people what he is learning. My 5th grader does have a heavy workload but she is proud to do well in a school that is challenging. She recognizes the difference in this school compared to others she has attended (we are military and have moved a lot). They have neat ideas for motivating students and are quick to recognize their accomplishments. The study skills being taught to my children are invaluable.

Can NOT say enough about this school. Amazing teachers.They really keep the kids engaged.My children have gained so much knowledge by attending this school. I will be eternally grateful to these teachers and this principal for instilling in my children a love for learning, and the desire to learn more.Our family had to relocate this summer (military) and the absolute hardest thing I've ever had to do was to pull my children from this school.Starting in kindergarten, students are taught excellence in work and in character. This theme is carried out through all grades.The teachers are incredibly compassionate and tuned in to each child.They welcome parents to come any time.I've sat in on classes, and I'm just amazed with the style of teaching and the level of engagement with each student as they are being taught.Parents have to be ok with a good amount of homework.It was a lot, but I was ok with that knowing they were getting such an amazing education.My kids would come home, sit down and get started.Sometimes it was a crazy amount, but they just did it.I encouraged them and helped them. As a parent, you've got to have a positive attitude about the schoolwork! It's worth it.

It could be a great school but they are too extreme! Full day Kindergarten is close to $300 monthly. No computers or language classes are offered. The homework load is ridiculous & starts the 1st day of Kindergarten. Kids complain of their lil fingers hurting. On top of the daily (including on Friday) homework load the school requires the kids to do corrections, which means you have to spend evenings teaching, reteaching & focusing on how wrong your kids are. Not good for self esteem. They have so many tests, quizzes, poems, book reports & daily homework that their school life WILL be your home life too! The homework is insane and continues through high school, where kids bring suitcases just to carry it all. So expect to lose your precious time with your kids. After school includes studying for so many subjects that your kids will NOT want to do anything else educational. My daughter use to do math for fun, not anymore! She no longer loves to learn, just does what she has to. They teach by continuously repeating everything, so much is quickly forgotten. No questions or critical thinking just memorization! 1/3 teachers are bad including the principle. He's fake & the worse of all
