My daughter has attended Vine Middle School since the beginning of this year. The teachers are wonderful and I have felt that my daughter was getting a good education. We chose this school because of the programs that were offered and the promise of a constantly improving academic program. There are a lot of children that have a "tough" and defensive demeanor, and my daughter has fortunately been able to avoid them. Now, we are told that due to budget cuts, 3 of my daughter's classes are being cut. The dance program, video production and Beta club will no longer be offered. I was told that the administrators have recommended against encouraging enrollment of children from the Honors Magnet Elementary School as they were "problematic" for the "tough" crowd to tolerate.
