We transferred to Vienna from out-of-zone this year (though we only live about 2 miles away from the school). We had been attending another school (our home school in our zone) with a Great Schools rating of 10, but when a new administration took over, the school became something different than what we wanted for our children. That said, Vienna has been a dream. Mrs. Hewitt (who is the principal formally known as Mrs. Dees) :) is without a doubt, the best there is. She and Mrs. Davis were so helpful and welcoming to us as we navigated the out of zone transfer request and our children's transition to Vienna. There is SUCH a different vibe than we got at our former school. The children have fun and learn a lot at Vienna, but they also know that there are high expectations. They are taught not only to be good students, but to be good people. We saw it in the hallways, the first time we visited. The students were so respectful and polite and we see it daily in our own children now. The communication from teachers and administration is frequent and parents are encouraged to get involved. All in all, it's just an awesome place!

There is a reason why all the parents, children and teachers at Vienna are so happy. This school is run like a well oiled machine. My daughter just started Kindergarten there out of our zone and after visiting several other public schools in the area we chose Vienna because it feels like it is the safest, most individualized and caring school in the area! They seem to have a wonderful balance of academics, socialization and enrichment. With the start of Kindergarten comes a huge transition for the child. I was so pleased to know they schedule an afternoon rest/quiet time in the beginning of the year. This is HUGE! Not all schools do this but they should!! I have also been so happy with the way my child's class uses positive discipline techniques and reward systems, not punishing the entire class when someone misbehaves etc. (and this happens at other schools). Communication has been great as well...we are one happy Vienna family and are so lucky to be able to attend school here!

Vienna Elementary School is warm and inviting. Smaller than many other schools I think that it is close to a private school within the public school setting. Principal Dees knows not only every child by name, but every single family member. (I don't know how she does it, but she does!) Vice Principal Davis was my daughter's math teacher before moving up to VP. She has an amazing, inspiring connection with all of the kids. Each child is individually placed in classrooms with great care. Ms. Dees and Ms. Davis know every child well and hand-place them with both teachers and peers where they will not only learn the best but will be the happiest. The whole staff of teachers is truly remarkable. I feel Blessed that my children have gone here!

Vienna is an excellent school. It's like a small town school in a big city...tucked away as a hidden jewel. The teachers go above and beyond to teach the students and all the extras just add to the great atmosphere that is Vienna.

Vienna is called an elementary school, but in fact it is a community. A loving, caring, exciting, challenging, (and every other wonderful "ing" word you can come up with) community. Vienna meets EVERY child where they are and inspires him/her to move forward. The kind, helpful, encouraging way that Vienna children treat each other speaks volumes about the teaching they receive. At the risk of 'overselling' Vienna, it is simply the best school in which I have ever set foot.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this school... My oldest daugher started here when she was in 3rd grade and vienna did wonders with her! My youngest daughter began vienna and we moved so she is now in another school in the district that is supposed to be one of the top school.. Needless to say we will be returning to Vienna because there is so much more to this school! Mrs Dee's makes your child feel like they are one of her own this is a wonderful school and cant wait to bring my daugher back next year! She cant wait either!

My daughter started Vienna at the end of fourth grade. I was worried about her starting a new school so late in the game and if she would get lost in the shuffle. WOW, this school is so wonderful and she excelled as if we hadnt moved and changed schools at all. MS. DEES is the best thing that any school system could ever ask for. She is the asst Principal but as far as im concerned she is the SCHOOLs everything. She is the most personable person who you can tell truly cares about each student and her teachers and staff. Her entire heart and soul is in this school and our children. I can not say enough good things about her and how happy my daughter is at Vienna. Makes me even happier that we moved to enjoy such a wonderful school even if for a short time.

Vienna is like no other school! It is a home for all children. The school is a community of students, parents, teachers, administrators working to nurture each child and provide an appropriate level of challenge. VIenna provides an appropriate balance between a focus on achievement and raising responsible citizens. It truly is amazing in every aspect!

Vienna has impressed me so much with regards to the leadership and their attention to any and all concerns regarding my children. I have three children in this school- this is our first year here as we moved from Charlotte this summer. Mrs. Dees has been a wonderful leader and her level of care for the whole child and making certain their experience here is positive has been such a pleasant surprise. I feel like I am in private school here- they care what we as parents think, the teachers and leaders listen, and in addition to being an excellent scoring school academically, they are able to incorporate that warm community feel bringing fun to the classroom as well. I love it here- and so do my children- we are lucky to be here!

Vienna is the best kept secret in WSFCS. The leadership is responsive and knows the student body exceptionally well. The teachers are fantastic and everything is geared toward what is best for the child. The parent involvement is also top-notch. I now have 2 children in this school after spending 2 years at another highly-rated school in the zone. There is no comparison between the two: My and my children's experience at Vienna is superior academically and socially. Vienna does an exceptional job with gifted kids and those that dont fit the mold. I highly recommend to anyone who will listen.

Vienna is a school of communications and has unique qualities such as a live broadcast every morning and instant recess on Tiger TV everyday. The staff is outstanding and goes above and beyond anything that is asked.

My daughter attended Vienna for 6 years and Ms. Dess is the best, bar none, school administrator we have ever met. Vienna is a public school but the school works as a private school. Staff and parents work together happily. #1 school in the system.
