    "I am a parent of 2 children at Village School and 1 child who has graduated. I came to this site because another parent was shocked at what was written. I would say to anyone who is reading this to PLEASE disregard these bad reviews. They have obviously been written by one or two very unhappy parents. My child graduated got into every school she applied to and is making straight A's at one of these schools. She was COMPLETELY prepared for the challenges of middle school, both academically and socially. My other 2 children love Village, have great teachers, and good friends. I don't know what else can be asked of a school? I don't think any school is perfect for every family or every child. And I don't think the administration will make 100% of the parent body happy 100% of the time. From what I've seen, parents who are chronically unhappy usually have "problem" children, or are generally unhappy people. If you are looking for a school with a family atmosphere, with young, smart, communicative faculty and staff, you should definitely disregard these negative reviews and visit Village School."

    "I am a 4th year Village School parent of 3 very different kids who all are enjoying Village School. The combination of a terrific class room education, character development, parent education seminars all make Village a special community. We feel grateful to have found the perfect school for us."

    "There was a time when Village School was considered one of the "better" schools in the area. The current generation of school management has driven the school down to being one of the worse schools on the westside. Don't waste your time or money there are so many other options in the area. Your kids are better off at one of the local public schools."

    "We switched our child half way through the school and just wish people had been honest about their experiences there before we'd signed on the dotted line. Our experience at Village matched many of the others here - an overrated school, an outdated curriculum, a patchy teaching body at best (although Mr Johnson is fabulous) and, despite saying they exist to help each child reach their true potential, no differentiation in curriculum at either end of the academic spectrum. Our child was bored and unchallenged. They had to be tutored by their next school as they were so far behind. We thought we'd done our due diligence, but were wrong - choose another school that will truly challenge, nuture and care for your child, not Village."

    "Both my kids went through Village. There is a lot to like: many of the teachers are good. A couple are great (Mr. Johnson is the kind that can inspire a kid for life). The kids are generally nice and the parents are probably more relaxed than at some other westside schools, making for a pleasant daily experience. The biggest issue is that the academic program doesnt keep up with the other schools and it shows in the placement process. Furthermore the 3 ladies that run the school (Nora, Barbara, and Sue) just aren't very interested in improving the reputation/placement process/academics so that while they do place some kids at the top schools they can't deliver the kids to their school of choice. Each year many families leave upset with where their kids are going to school. (Mine dont fall into this camp fyi..but I worked very hard outside of the Village program to get my kids where we thought they belonged.) Also, in out experience any parent that has had a point of difference with the school has been met with a strong defensive reaction from Nora. She is not open to questioning or dissatisfaction."
