Principal's Welcome

Welcome Vivian Banks Eagles! 


It is indeed a pleasure to welcome you to the 20019-2020 school year at Vivian Banks Charter School. The Vivian Banks parents and community share a common vision.  High quality classroom instruction, students who are highly motivated to learn, a warm nurturing environment, and a supportive and encouraging parent community make Vivian Banks a wonderful place to learn and work. It is our goal that all students will leave Vivian Banks able to read, write, and compute at successful levels that will enable them to experience academic success at the next level and beyond.


To ensure this success, the Vivian Banks staff is dedicated to the use of sound instructional practices and high quality instructional materials, including the integration of technology throughout the curriculum.  Our instructional programs combine explicit skill instruction, such as phonics and mathematics skills, and instruction that is embedded within a meaningful context.  Students have the ability to go beyond the basics, through the use of technology and a focus on meeting the needs of each individual student. 


What parents value or believe defines what is important to their children.  When you value education and believe it is important, so will your children.  Our partnership with you in this shared value is critical.  Your child’s education is our priority!
