Vassar's Shared Vision

Vassar Elementary School, where the Prairie Hawks soar, is a community of life-long learners that includes parents, students, and staff members. At the core of our belief system lies the idea that meaningful relationships allow everyone to succeed. Together we agree to grow, learn, and persevere when challenged. As a community we will soar above the rest.
