Since its founding in 1970, Village Community School's goal has been to develop self-motivated students who view learning as an exciting and rewarding process that will continue throughout their lives.
We strive to be a diverse community where equity, justice and excellence are interdependent, and children become effective citizens, with the ability to make meaningful contributions.
Our social-studies based curriculum matches a child's developing ability to study the world across time and place, peoples and cultures.
We teach subject matter in depth with a strong interdisciplinary focus, allowing children to gain a substantial body of knowledge, along with the ability to see the connections among various areas of learning.

School Reviews

  • Recommended November 21, 2013 - I was searching for high schools to apply to when I came across this website and had to express my love for my k-8 school: am a 14 year old girl in the 8th grade at VCS. I started VCS 9 years ago in kindergarten, or as we call it, the 5/6s. I can''t tell you what this school has done for me. My grade is under 30 kids, so we are all super close. We each have our own passions, but we always support each other and try new things. I was the quiet girl in kindergarten, but VCS taught me what really matters, community and awareness for yourself and others. I am now confident in myself and my classmates. I honestly love my classmates more than I can say. We are seriously the biggest family ever. This sounds totally cliché, but VCS is the greatest gift you can give to your child. I used to be jealous of my friends who went to "top schools," but now I realize I would never trade my VCS experience for anything, Whereas other schools have cliques and popularity, we are really such a family. We all take pride in not fitting in to the "Status quo." For example, when some kids from another school invited some of us to see a (very inappropriate) movie, we all denied, and instead went to see Alvin and the Chipmuncks....and this was in 6th grade!!! VCS is an a fairly unknown school, but the academics are fantastic. I have discovered my passion for writing there. The arts and sports are incredible as well. I do theater and softball (the sports teams are all inclusive so that kids can discover their passions) and I do watercolor. Anyway, I am sorry for going on and on, but honestly, if you want your child to be an open-minded, self respecting, outgoing, (safe) risk taking student and person in general, I can honestly say VCS is the place. I just can''t express my love for the students and teachers here. I just....I''m going to miss them all so much next year :( - Posted by Student/Alumni
