    "I really like this school because I've been at Vanguard since I was in Pre-k. This school is great, vanguard has an amazing learning environment. Vanguard is a bully and drug free school. Vanguard teaches everyday student that attends there to be responsible, respectful and obedient. Vanguard is not funded by the government because every morning and before lunch, we still have prayer, which I think is really important. Vanguards faculty and staff are all nice and they help you as much as possible to help you succeed. Vanguard is an amazing school, which is the reason why I would attend vanguard again is I has to all over again."

    "The teachers are your greatest asset in this school. Go to them and they will help you. Vanguard Academy, directing towards the high school portion, encourages their students to pursue a college education and they help them get to that goal. They offer Advance Placement courses along with the Dual Enrollment program with South Texas College, so that students can earn college credit simultaneously with high school credit, it'll benefit in the long haul and it will help save money in the future. I'll admit that the school itself is very conservative, especially when working with a fine arts emphasis, but they do want to help students succeed along with finishing their education in a safe, school environment."
