Vincent Elementary School made history in Alabama by being the first one in the state to pilot a year-round school calendar. Our school has since changed back to a traditional calendar to be consistent with other schools in the district. However, we are still frequently recognized for the once popular piloted program.
In 2007, Vincent Elementary School received a grant from the Office of School Readiness (OSR) to begin a Pre-K program. VES was the first school in the district to have the OSR Pre-K program. This program serves 18 four-year old students with a certified teacher and an aide.
To become a model for excellence in education
VES educators believe education consists of:
passing on knowledge, skills, and strategies that empower students to be lifelong learners
building a culture of respect and high expectations for all students
striving to meet students where they are and giving them the tools and opportunities to meet and exceed educational standards
We will empower students to value lifelong learning, embrace diversity, and strive for excellence.
