    "This school has been a huge disappointment!!! This was my third graders first year here and he has gone from loving school and doing fairly well academically to hating the thought of going to school and coming home with terrible grades. The pressure from his teacher has been over bearing for all of us. The administration is so unprofessional and tries to steamroll the parents into doing what they want you to do with your child's academic progress. Test scores and their blue ribbon is all they care about and they will do whatever it takes to keep it that way."

    "Vanderburg is rated 5-star performance school (the highest rating in NV public school) & received Blue Ribbon Award. I find its administration, staff, & faculty are friendly and helpful. I find the teachers are concerned about the individual child. They take time to know the children & family, address & meet their individual needs in order to effectively guide the children to be successful. It has a diversified children population. The students I've met are well behaved and polite. The parents I've met are nice and civilized. Involved parents makes a difference in a child's education. The PTA is active (although cliques exist). It has special classes like Arts, Music, PE, Library. It has a gifted & talented program for advanced kids. It has several after school programs too: Arts, Lego, physical activities, etc. It is a great school in the Green Valley Ranch area."

    "As a room parent this year, I got the chance to see first hand how the staff and admin work with others. The front office staff are very quick to get snippy with parents and are quick to make personal comments about parents when they leave their presence. I have seen the principal on many occasions yell at or talk down to parent and children. My child's is in the first grade and his teacher is beyond unprofessional. She has no handle on her class, plays favorites, is very unorganized, unfocused and it shows not only to parents that come in and volunteer but to her students as well. Take note when I say that this school is only focused on testing and keeping their blue ribbon and NOT about making sure that our children learn what they need to."

    "I have two children in Vanderburg (grade 1 and grade 4) and believe this school is excellent overall. The Principal and administration have a complete commitment to excellence; the teachers (especially Mrs. Berry and Mrs. Mroz) are top-notch and care about the students; and the parents seem to take an active role in the education of their kids--which is shown by the very active PTA. Overall, I would rank the school as high as the private schools in the area."

    "Horrible administration who made me feel uncomfortable having my child at this school. To put it nicely, it wasn't abnormal to see the assistant principal raising her voice to students, or me. Even at the lowest grade level, the focus is on test scores and they will do whatever it takes. Attempting to solve problems with staff is very difficult because they just flat out lie. Very frustrating teacher too, I wonder if it's the same one as the other reviewer's. The kids here are just numbers and it's sad because it doesn't have to be that way."
