Vinland Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Aside from the beautiful campus, there is nothing great about this school. My daughter attended two years here and we are now looking at other options. Teachers are frustrated and have too many students, there is no differentiation in work, and supervision is horrible. Incidences and bullying are not supervised or monitored adequately. This is a school that meets the status quo. These early formative years of education are so important and I'm done settling for this school and looking into private school options. I'm just sad I didn't move her sooner.

We were excited to start Vinland and it took 2 years of mediocrity (at best) and an incident to realize things would not get better there. My daughter attended this school for two years and our experience there was subpar. She is and always has been a good student and behaviorally had zero issues. There were a few reasons I was unhappy with the school, but my breaking point was when we had an incident on the playground that both teachers and the principle failed to deal with properly. I have spoken to other parents and it appears things like this are not uncommon. It is no surprise, as recesses there have 100+ kids running around all the play areas and the field with just two recess aids on a HUGE campus. Things happen on the playground and it got to a point where I did not feel like my daughter was safe at the school due to lack of supervision. Her teacher either was consistently frustrated with teaching, or just did not care. Even on days I volunteered in class she would snap at other students for silly reasons. Parent conferences were immaterial and information was boiler plate. Her teacher couldn't even tell me what my daughter's strengths are. Conferences at both grade levels were general and could be summed up in a short email. I know of 3 other families in my daughter's grade level that had similarly negative experiences and have now chosen to private school or home school. I feel bad for parents who don't have the resources to do either. Advice I can give--be your kid's advocate and a wheel squeaker to get things done/noticed. Our experience at Vinland was a blessing in disguise as we moved our daughter to an amazing private school (Silverwood Elementary) where she is flourishing socially and academically. It's been so wonderfully different, at both the student experience, and parent communication level. My daughter now loves going to school and is bummed when Friday rolls around since she has to miss school. At parent conferences now, teacher feedback is specific both in academics and social/personality where I come away knowing that the teacher actually KNOWS my daughter. It's been a refreshing change all around.

This school is just way too big. They cannot meet all of the students needs. We moved from a much smaller school and so far I am not impressed. The teachers don't seem to even know my children's strengths. We are not finding differentiation for student learning levels. You do not feel part of a community here... just a number. I really think it is just too big for an elementary school. And the uniforms... what a joke. Anyone who thinks limiting a child's creativity of choice in dress will help his or her academics is archaic. All it shows our family is that creativity is out the door at this school. Boo... looking for other options for my children.

This school used to be great! Older reviews are justifiably higher, but any positive reviews more than three years old can be safely ignored. Principal and some of the staff are truly interested in student success, and welcome parent involvement. Overall school culture is fractured and parents are not as welcome as they once were, which is sad because research shows that parental involvement is the most important contributing factor to student success. As other reviews have noted, one of the front office staff is incredibly rude and arrogant, unfortunately. Her arrogance has led her to provide guidance contrary to district policy and state law and the principal has had to correct her mistakes. Campus is beautiful. Somewhat of a student drop-off issue, but not too onerous. With some staffing changes and revised school culture that values parental and community involvement, hopefully this school can be great again!

This school came so highly recommended when I relocated to the area last year. It's clear that they have some caring staff and teachers and the principal is genuine and cares about situations that are brought to his attention. That being said, the school is overwhelmingly disorganized and the left hand doesn't appear to know what the right is doing. There is one front office staff member that is incredibly rude and condescending. Parent involvement is not encouraged. Class sizes are far too big and the poor teachers are rendered ineffective against this limitation. They also don't appear to know how to handle children with varying degrees of learning. My child is well above his grade level in all areas. Because he's unassuming, quiet, well behaved, performed all work well and without supervision, and didn't seek attention, he became invisible. Even after repeated requests for learning geared towards his level to challenge him. The uniform policy is fine but a little over restrictive for young children. This school would be great if it could be reminded that it's a school made up of hundreds of different people as opposed to numbers on a roster.
