Welcome back to another wonderful year at VMT. This year we will continue to focus on student success and the refinement of our programs. Our school and the unique programs we offer here continue to be the “gem” of the district. We are excited to welcome new staff members to our team and to share all the great activities planned for this coming year.
What an exciting, extremely successful and fun year we had last year at our beautiful new school. Our culminating performance, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” truly defines the collaborative spirit of our teachers and the focus, intense commitment and attitude of our VMT students...confident, fearless, and self-driven. Our director, Mr. Carroll, our talented teachers, the cast and crew, and our amazing team of volunteers made our first musical an event that will long be remembered. And, it has inspired our quest to keep on striving for greater heights!
For those of you that have been part of this team, you know what I mean when I say this school is transformational. For those of you that are joining our team for the first time, you will soon understand that what you do here transforms students’ lives. The focused and deliberate integration of the arts in a student’s education provides that inner connection to his psyche, nourishes his soul and brings him closer to his human side. This is what transforms the student for life. This truly validates our purpose as educators and serves as a challenge and impetus to become better every year.
Academically, our students do very well and, this year we had some of the highest scores ever but, our goal continues to be, to get our students to perform at advanced levels in state assessments and AP exams. Our students need to be well-prepared to succeed at the college level and in the area of study they choose. Toward this end, we will focus all our energy to make this goal a reality this coming year.
The VMT Magnet School continuous to be the best school for developing young minds and molding individual and creative talents.
Let’s all work together to make our vision a reality.
Thank you for all you do!
Dr. Martha E. Villarreal
