The Vanguard School Ratings & Reviews

This school has caused so much hurt to so many people. I’ve seen students get expelled and get the cops called on them for unreasonable things. Administration also yelled at a student for crying in class threatening that student they would be expelled if they cried in class again. I thought this school was to help these issues. Apparently not. A few seniors have been upset because they aren’t allowed to walk in graduation but will be finishing in the summer. I highly discourage parents sending their child here. Vanguard sugar coats everything and even writes fake testimonials for students to say in front of board members. I highly suggest finding a more supportive school.

Our child has only had excellent experiences at the school, both in the dorm and classes. Teachers and Staff are terrific. Mr. Maready who is now the head of the school has done a lot of improvements! Vanguard School of Lake Wales is the best! Go on a tour and see for yourself!

My son was fortunate to be able to attend The Vanguard School in Lake Wales for his senior high school year (2015-2016). It has been an invaluable experience. I'd like to call attention to some of the above average things I have noticed about the school over the past year.Academics: Vanguard had him enroll in a college course, and transported him to its campus, which was a huge thrill for him. In the past, I have met jaded teachers who have shared their dissatisfaction with their job, but at Vanguard the teachers have all shared with me how they wouldn't want to work anywhere else. It's taken 13 years for me to finally meet a group of teachers with this refreshing attitude. My son enjoys learning, so having him around teachers that enjoy teaching was a perfect match for him.Dorm Staff: I have noticed the staff does a superior job of acting as “surrogate parents” by striking a balance between being a respected mentor who maintains discipline and being an understanding friend who is involved and ever present. The staff is always professional- they do not demean students, and they do not try to be one of the kids. They handle the inevitable conflicts between students quickly and well.Dorm Life: Experiences at The Vanguard School dorm will serve him well for his transition to college dorm living. He has learned the importance of keeping a healthy schedule (eating, sleeping, and being active) and keeping his living space in good order. With staff support, he's learned to step outside his comfort zone and try new activities- available in abundance. And, with staff support, he's been given ample opportunities to learn social skills.I wish I had placed him at this school earlier in his life.

This is my sons 3rd year attending Vanguard, and we could not be more pleased. The new president has made tremendous changes. Dorm rooms and bathrooms have been remodeled. Earlier curfew. Very low student teacher ratio. Wonderful staff. School day ends at 5:15 after students finish their electives. Students will be kept busy. School grounds have been updated. Most importantly, my child has been thriving at Vanguard. Staff are always available for my child.
