VCMS Administration




Jim Harrison has been a part of the VCMS community for 13 years.
"It is my belief that all children can learn if placed in the right environment. It is our responsibility to find the most effective environment for these students to grow academically, socially and emotionally.
It is our hope and desire to not only prepare students for higher learning but to help them become better citizens and contributing members in their community."


Mr. James Harrison


Mr. Gelada joined the VCMS community two years ago.

"In order to help students reach their potential, a school must provide an atmosphere conducive to learning. Students are more engaged and perform at higher levels when they are truly interested in the work at hand. Students need to be provided with opportunities to work independently and in groups, grappling with concepts by conducting their own experiments and independent research. Once students can apply what they have learned to new situations, both in and out of school, they become responsible for their own learning and are well prepared to become lifelong learners."
