At VPS we are not only focused on your child's academic growth, but also with his or her development as a total human being. This includes emotional and social well-being, a sense of responsibility, appropriate behavior, and physical wellness. To accomplish this, we work together as a team to foster a "positively primary" environment for all. VPS is home to children in grades two, three, and K/1 multi-age and approximately 150 staff members committed to providing the best possible education and environment for your child.
