School Reviews

5   6/8/2010
Samuel Vaughn is very interested in raising their STaR Testing every year. Unfortunately, there is not enough extracurricular activities and physical education. The school buildings look new and are kept up very nicely. the parent involvement could always be greater but is a good level as is.
