Testimonials


When we moved to Colorado Springs we intentionally moved to a particular district for the "fantastic" public schools. I wasn't impressed, put our children at The Vanguard School and it has blown us out of the water. This is the best school we have ever attended and I am so thrilled that my children are getting such a marvelous education. The children are continuously challenged, and love going to school everyday. The principal and staff are amazing, and they lead by example. Also, every week they have a different character trait they explore....AMAZING SCHOOL!

It's worth the drive! We live 12 miles (one way) away and after many many hours of research and a few tours, we chose The Vanguard School as the school for our family. Our oldest is in Kindergarten this year and we are very impressed by what he is learning and how fast he is learning it. His teachers are very responsive and open to parental involvement. The campus is always open to parents to come and observe their child(ren). I never feel like an outsider in my child's education, but instead as an active partner in teaching him. There is excellent communication between teachers, staff and parents. Teachers and other staff are always available via email. You can access your child's grades & attendance records online. The school and each grade level sends out a weekly newsletter letting you know what your children are going to be learning the next week and any other things of importance. All that said though, this school isn't for everyone, so do your homework first. I think a majority of the disappointed parents had different expectations or ideas of what The Vanguard School is. This is a school of choice, just make sure it's the right choice for you.

The Vanguard School is the best thing that could have happened to me. It has furthered my education beyond all of my expectations. I came from a traditional public school to the rigorous, classical curriculum at Vanguard.  I was really behind, but my teachers were so helpful in getting me caught up. Vanguard prepares you amazingly in all aspects of life, and I am truly thankful I had the opportunity to attend here. If your child has the drive to learn and the desire to become competitive in every aspect of life, it would be a mistake not to send them here. It was the best decision my family and I could have ever made.

Why do I love The Vanguard School?
1. The teachers and their commitment to the kids. 2. The kids and their commitment to themselves and their school. 3. The administration who is devoted to working for our kids and squeezing every cent out of every dollar. Please come in for a visit, sit down, watch our teachers in action—you will not be disappointed! Our family has been part of the Cheyenne Mountain Charter Academy/The Vanguard School family for the past 11 years, and I cannot imagine being with a better group of people!

Vanguard is an excellent school! Despite the challenging schoolwork and lessons, my daughter is having the time of her life. The students and teachers are very friendly and the teachers are always ready to help any student. My daughter thinks she's learned more this semester than throughout her whole average junior high career at her previous school. If you're looking for an academically rigorous education for your child, you should definitely look into Vanguard.
