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!

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
