    "Eh, the schools okay I guess. Most of the teachers are nice and helpful but the buses are really crowded. You have to sit three kids to a seat. There can be some really annoying kids but I wouldn't really consider them bullies. The lunch line is a little long but that's only if you get there late. I guess I'd rather be here than LVMS."

    "I like this school so far the teachers are nice especially Se ora Garmendia and Mrs.Zender. Mrs. Froemming is super nice lunch line wait is a little long people do cut but most kids bring a lunch so it doesn't bug me or my friends because we still have a lot of time to eat and hang with each other , before SSR(firth period) Aerospace is a bit boring my friends brother said it was a lot of fun last year, now its just boring. Every class I go to I learn something new or more about something I already learned about. I was a bit scared about going to this school after me and my mom read the reviews. especially the ones about the bulling because I was bullied and that's why I don't go to the boys and girls club any more. Actually when I got there and saw how it is for myself I liked it. One thing that is bad is the busses because its very crowed especially the g street bus because we have 86 kids and one bus but Mr. Fernados sister said a second bus is soon to come Im looking forword to a better edicatn and fun year at Vandenberg Middle School I recommend it to future 7th graders and 8th graders"

    "I have had a wonderful experience at VMS so far. I am sorry that the previous parent did not. I don't expect the administration to follow my kid around, call me personally with an outcome when I can speak to my kid and hear it directly after school from the one person I care to hear it from ( my kid). I don't expect the teachers to hold my kid's hand because I expect that my child can follow instructions and enjoy the school experience to grow up to become independent."

    "After reading the comment by "TEACHER", I laughed at first. I then realized that this is a clear example of what seems to be the normal reaction of staff that are so overwhelmed with students that it is impossible to be in touch with what's really going on. The dead giveaway is the claim to *fame* that initially excited us when we moved her and enrolled our 7th grader. These claims of excellence don't hold much weight when the entire state performs so low (is it #49?) in our already poorly performing nation. It has been about two weeks since we started school this year and I am pulling my child out. On the first day of school, my daughter came home ravenous with hunger. She and her friend told me that they waited in line for the entire 30 mins of lunch and still weren't able to get close to the front of the line. I figured it was an isolated issue since it was only the first day. We began packing just in case. Thankfully, we did. There are always kids in line when the bell rings. 2 of my neighbor's children won't even go in line because they don't want to have to get pushed around by the swarms of bullies who make their way to the head of the line. So, yes, this is still a problem."

    "The comment of December 2, 2011 could not be further from the truth. Vandenberg Middle School is known throughout the community as a place where academic excellence and high expectations are the norm. Discipline is a top priority and per 2011 student survey responses, the vast majority of students feel safe and believe VMS adults care about their well-being. There have been incidents with regard to bullying, but they are investigated and dealt with swiftly by administration. In a middle school of over 800 students, one can expect that there will be some incidents of this nature. Bullying is a zero tolerance offense at VMS, but it is unreasonable to think that it will not occur. This is a public middle school with children from all demographic and socio-economic backgrounds. The school's API of 818 is a reflection of the quality education that is available to students. A robust elective program rivals any in Santa Barbara County. In an era of reduced California budgets, this reflects Vandenberg's priorities. As far as the long lunch lines -- NOT THE CASE. I am in the lunch room almost everyday and students have their lunch in plenty of time."
