School Reviews

My daughter has been attending VMS for the past 2 years and is starting her last year there as a Kindergartener and I couldn''t be happier. There was just a change of ownership over the summer, and things have even gotten better. We''ll be starting our son there in the Fall of 2014 once he''s old enough. Great staff - we love Miss Kelly and Miss Kim!
