Veritas School Ratings & Reviews

April 07, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Veritas does an excellent job balancing high academic expectations, a loving and nurturing faculty, and a Christ-centered school culture. Classical education is not a good match for every student or every family, but it's an excellent choice for families who want their kids to grow. The negative reviews here surprise me, although I'm pretty sure I know the background situations behind some of them. I know that some families have felt frustrated when the leadership here has decided to maintain the original Veritas mission rather than change it when these families have suggested changes, but that seems to be a point in favor rather than against.

Administration is not forthright with parents, and the result is a school that is failing. With a never ending building project, underpaid teachers, and a philosophy that frequently ignores it's own established policies - this is a school with a future that is VERY uncertain.

I graduated from Veritas a couple years back, and look at me! I turned out alright!I think those Negative Nellies saying stuff like "the teachers don't listen to my brilliant ideas" might not understand that their ideas maybe aren't all that brilliant? Plus, these teachers probably know what they're doing. I mean, it's a school after all. And they have sheets of paper which back that up. Give the teachers the benefit of the doubt if you have doubts. We turn out darned well compared to the rest of the people I've seen throughout college -- we're different.Notice that I spelled all the words correctly. I became a word-spellin' machine in the first grade there! Love them words!

While we experienced many blessings being at Veritas were very disappointed in the administration. We watched 2 of the most awesome teachers have their contracts not renewed because their kids did not attend Veritas. Both of these teachers were replaced with people with family connections in the school. Both of these new teachers do not meet the excellence the school advertises. The feeling is the school is constantly looking for donations but has no interest in parent input. When I had a concern about my young elementary child I was met with defensiveness from the teacher and the phrase, "well your child does not pay attention". No plan was offered to help. I am the parent not the teacher, I was asking for guidance to help from the professional so we could work as a team to benefit my child. I pay the school to educate my child I was amazed at how much they want you to teach your child. To clarify some of the teachers were amazing and did not require more than the average homework and they taught the children very well. I have NO problem doing helping with homework and listening to them read, and working on projects to support the teachers work in the classroom. I work full time to pay tuition and was disappointed to have a teacher tell me I was not doing enough at home. I was also surprised to find some of the behavior allowed while the children were in line going from one class to another. I was told that they are allowed to talk and visit even when that means they are not paying attention to the teacher. Respecting an adult is an important lesson.They also want to fit your child into a box that tests well. If your child does not then it is suggested they go somewhere else. This helps bring the school test rating up but discarding the less than perfect students seriously limits the growth of the school. Why do they offer hefty tuition credits to existing families to find new students and get them enrolled? Word of mouth is not enough?As I started this rating, our experience is NOT all bad. Some of the teachers we worked with were amazing! The office staff gals are caring, loving and supportive. The headmaster for the elementary is great with the kids and, I believe, truly cares. We love so many of the people here. Overall the curriculum is sound, the music program awesome.

To a previous reviewer who asked why Veritas needs a marketing department: because it's a small private school in a small town that will most likely only be known as home of wine country and possibly George Fox; because yes, Veritas does rely on donational and volunteer support for its survival. How is this at all bad? We all thank those who make Veritas possible through their caring donations, volunteering, and other support, for they have thanked God for blessing them with abundance by seeing fit to bless others as well. Well, the afore mentioned reviewer says that the marketing department exists to hide all the bad reviews, to sweep all the bad stuff under the rug. It exists rather to show the world Veritas's virtues in spite of reviewers who simply take joy in lashing out and trying to catch Veritas red-handed, implicating her of many crimes often on evidence which is simply at ends with the experience of the majority at Veritas. The world has already heard enough bad about Veritas from reviewers, so it is the job of the marketers (criticized more) to make sure the truth of the good gets out as well, since no one honestly pays as much attention to good reviews as to bad.
