  • Earlier this year, I was in the office checking my kids out of school for a doctor's appointment. There was a teenager sitting in the office that was in trouble. I listened to him explain to someone why he was sent to the office. "I wrote IDK on my math test." I couldn't help but burst out in laughter.

    I will let you make your own judgement, but as for me being a math professor at a local college, if I saw that, I would help the child not punish them.

  • OMG...this place is a joke. I graduated from this school district about 15 years ago. It was great then, but not now.

    1.) Bullying doesn't exist if the student does not tell a faculty member IMMEDIATELY!! (Do they have any ideal how it feels to be bullyied? My child comes home almost every day and tells me about things that happens to him. Of course, I call and raise a fit the next day with the school. Response that I get "Sorry Ma'am, but we can't do anything unless the child tells us about it when it happens.")

    2.) Forget a pencil = DETENTION...omg...what every happened to the teachers having resources available to students? And they get a tax break on their personal taxes for providing it. Plus, detention is very extreme. I mean if I forgot a pencil at work, my boss would probably offer me one or let me go get one. Detention is assigned for everything and any little thing.

    3.) Kids don't dare trying to think out of the box because then you are not following directions and will be classified as insubordination!!!! No individualism or freedom of speech allowed...do as I say...or else pay the price!!!!

    4.)Don't bother me with trying to accomodate for any disabilities!!! What happened to students with disabilities rights?!?!?!... we won't comply until next year (when the child will be in the high school next year).

    5.) Sit back and take the punch!! Student's don't fight back because you will be sitting in jail the rest of the day. Just take the beating..it will be okay. Yea, then all of the teenagers will be bullying you after that (see problem 1...bullying don't exist at this school.)

    6.) Who cares if they pass or fail, teachers still get paid. School does not comply with state mandated action to improve student's success. It's put on paper for the state, but the school will not enforce it.

    ....this list could go on forever!!!!!!!!!

    There are several schools with BETTER teachers/administration in other cities that are very close to Vilonia...save yourself a headache and go to one of them...I know we will be very soon!!!!!!!!!!

  • I've had children in this school system for many years. V Primary School is top notch, Middle School, so so but the Junior High.. TIME FOR A CHANGE! Many among the faculty are concerned more with watching each others backs than looking out for what's best for your child. Discipline is a good thing. However, If your child has never had discipline issues before, these folks will find a way to change that! Detentions for every little thing. If your child has to physically defending themselves, they will have their first hand cuff experience! Your child play J H football? He won't for be for long after connecting with this program! A COMPLETE JOKE!! Not a very "stout" program! You'll see what I mean. J H Heads of faculty and football must go!

  • More worried about gang related issues and test preperation for mandated test then they are about teaching children. They all are very polite to "understand" what your concerns are, but never do anything other than make time to hear you. Very disappointed in a school that we moved to because it looked so good on paper/print....don't be fooled by ratings...most kids they don't feel will do good on mandatory testing they exempt from taking. Don't let me forget...semester exams are also exempt if the child misses only 3 days a semester. How do they know what child isn't learning the info. if they are not tested for retention of the info. What a joke. I have had children attend different schools in this district because of their ages and will be posting to each school that they attended because these issues go district wide.

  • This school is beyond work. The community around the school, including the students attending, are so closely knit that outsiders get the cold shoulder. Teachers have problems controlling their classes and students are on the whole immature and without any structure. They are under the impression that everyone is a Christian that thinks exactly as they do, a condition that is not preparing them for the future in a world that is becoming more diverse. Classes are very limited, especially in 9th and 10th grade. The main focus seems to be Agriculture. The vice principal is incompetent and was, at least once, lazy enough to send three students to in school suspension for fighting when one was bullying and the other two were simply protecting themselves. The negative image presented by the Principal toward coming to teachers only helps to extinguish any hopes of stopping bullying.

  • Vilonia Junior High School is a fantastic school to go to get an education! It offers SO many classes and all the teachers lend a helping hand! I'm personally glad my parents allow me to go to this school! The atmosphere here is not like some atmospheres you find at other schools. There is absolutley no bullying. And if you do have an argument about something going on at school, then the teachers or the principal will listen. They will act like you're an adult and that everyone has their own opinion! If it wasn't for Vilonia's excellent schools, then I wouldn't be the person I am today! I give Vilonia Junior High a 100% A+!
