    "All the teachers I've had in the six years I've been at Vanguard really care about their students. Thanks to them, the classes have the level of rigor that people come to expect for a college prep school. That doesn't mean that they leave students behind when we get to difficult subjects, though. They make sure that everyone understands thoroughly whatever topic is being covered. Most are available to answer questions in person in the short time before school starts or during the mid-morning break. All of them, however, are all available after school so students can get help on any questions they have. Also, many teachers respond to students' questions through email and text, even on the weekends!"

    "For students who are willing to put in the effort to study, getting a pretty advanced education while still being in high school is readily available. For example, despite the relatively small number of students, many AP classes are offered, ranging from the expected Calculus and English Literature, to Art History and Latin (courses that are less commonly taught at the AP level in high schools)."

    "Vanguard is one of the few schools in Texas that is simultaneously able to have advanced academics, widespread participation in athletics and other extracurriculars, and traditions everyone enjoys."

    "Parents often micromanage everything but they also keep many extracurriculars and sports afloat with their support"

    "When I first came to the school I thought it was great. It was a small school where all the teachers engaged with the students and actually cared. But every year, it gradually got a little worse. Don't get me wrong, the teachers are still great! I still love them but the school itself decreased in quality. If you look at our school, all the buildings are pretty junky. We pay a lot of money to go to this school but where is all that money going? I've seen no improvements at all! Vanguard seems to be more focused on technology than anything else and that's fine but they need to focus on other things too! For example, our school has a very bad insect problem. There are always crickets inside the classrooms, making it very hard to concentrate. We used to have a garden but now it's just filled with weeds and very unattractive looking. We need to build new buildings or make buildings larger because Vanguard is accepting any student now, as long as they can pay. All they seem to care about is the money. It used to be filled with a ton smart kids, you could only get in if you passed the test but now they just accept anyone. Because of that, our school is overcrowded. There are way to many people attending the school when the school can't support that many people."
