I would like to welcome you to Vandergriff Elementary School.  Our strong culture and family environment are evident as you walk through our halls.  One of our areas of focus is relationships.  Vandergriff teachers and staff strive to build relationships with all students and parents to ensure that everyone feels they are a part of our community of learners.  Vandergriff has a long track record of academic success, and we work hard every day to continue to build on that success. The community support at Vandergriff is unlike any other, and I feel fortunate to be a part of this community of Vandergriff Grizzlies.
