    "I have had my children in both DPS and APS. DPS seems to offer more diversity in their schools. APS has A LOT of Hispanic students but no balance. OVER crowded classrooms 20-25 students and no teachers aids? Vaughn seems to rely on parent volunteers this is a low income area how do they expect parents to take off work? Most of the teachers are great but cannot be expected to solve most of the "HOME" issues that plague this school. Lack of English speaking parents/grandparent, some students lack the help at home with reading and writing homework. Most of the kid's that live around me are always outside playing until 7pm sometimes 8 on school nights. These teachers are dealing with a lot of student behavioral issues. If you look at most of the APS school grades and demographics, most of these schools are NOT preforming all that great so my advice from a parent who has already raised a student through APS is, have a plan to make sure your child is always learning in the classroom AND at home. I bought workbooks, reading books, maps, I am using ABC Mouse and whatever else I think will help my kids stay current, especially during the summer. You can NOT just rely on the classroom."

    "Completely unsafe and poorly run. They do reward bad behavior & don't do anything to stop violence in the classroom."

    "My kids are doing great ...this school is a good school , if there's a problem they will take care of it . I know all their staff and they are great people.I wish they had more individual teaching after school for the students who are a littke bit behind, but other than that is a good school."

    "Vaughn's TOSA cares about students and has done a great job of proactively addressing the needs of students with behavior concerns by building positive, safe relationships with them! Many of our students have social emotional learning needs that must be addressed in a restorative way and not in the traditional disciplinary way may have known as children. Punishment is not an effective way to teach our students how to make better decisions in the future-our data has shown it doesn't work! Teachers are learning how to implement and teach the social emotional standards our students must learn. The whole administrative team is very supportive to teachers when students behave in unsafe ways and students are definitely not rewarded for poor choices. Rather, they are given opportunities to repair the harm they've caused and learn what they can do in the future to make better choices. Vaughn and our TOSA are making a positive difference in the lives of students every day and I couldn't ask for a better place to teach!!!"

    "Last I checked, the way a person dresses have nothing to do with the affect on a school, and being a male isn't going to address the problems either. All schools have behavior students, not just this one. Vaughn has made improvement in test scores, and is able to offer students extra support, whether it be academic or emotional. The staff care about the students. The kids are made to take responsibility for their actions, and though, I might not agree how that is done, I don't think that it makes this school bad. My children have received extra academic support to keep their grades up. The teachers are caring, and the staff are supportive. The way a child behaves is not a reflection on the school, but on the parent. If more people (not just at this school) took responsibility for their children instead of dropping them off at school as if it was daycare, all schools would be problem free. Lastly, being a male or female doesn't make someone more qualified for a position of respect in the community, or better candidate for a school position. This is a good, solid school. If I didn't feel my kids were safe at this school, I wouldn't send them there everyday!"
