About Us


Our commitment to the Coalition of Essential Schools Common Principles drives our educational philosophy. This enables us to create a school that has high expectations, shared accountability, is student-centered, and uses performance-based assessment to measure what students learn.
Vanguard students fulfill graduation requirements and graduate by demonstrating their knowledge in a series of four portfolio presentations to graduation committees. Students take the English Language Arts Regents Exam.
