It's awful. I was there for 5th 6th and half of 7th grade the whole time i was there i was made fun of and bullied by the students. The teachers are hipocritical and they assume you do things that arent true just because of the peopl eyou hang out with. As soon an i moved to ck middle i was a thousand times happier my grades went from c's and d's to straight a's and i lost weight made friends and felt so much more comfortable

I like Vinson. The oldness makes me feel at home. I miss it. And whoever says it's crap is trying to be cool. So, go those people.

Good school. However, the drama with the girls in different grades is unreal.

Apparently you never paid attention in class to correct spelling and grammatical errors

If you look at the bad comments there all from CK, I has good food for school food, No school ae 5 star food. Trashy? Is old, and in they just got new football stuff as well as the best basketball gear you can get, so they are a really great school, and all the teachers there are the best. Bullys? The whole time I was there I rarly knew of much bullying.
Overall my time there was the greatest.

Is it really about the food??? People have there priorities all messed up. If your asking about the quality of education, it's a good school. Yes it needs updates but other then the physical appearance, it's a good school. Take it this for what's its worth.
Vinson is horrible

I am a parent, I went there and my kids went there. The place has no leadership, make fun of children who do not have money, the principal lets her convict son in law coach the middle school team when he was convicted for stealing from a fundraiser for cancer kids when he ran the Crash. The place is horribly unclean, I mean really nasty. As you can tell from the previous poster, the education is deplorable. Not to mention, the school is filed with political people and I mean, if you aren't in the click, it bleeds into the other aspects of your child's life, like sports, or recommendations for advanced educational programs. Most people who are transplants that go through this school system because severely depressed. There is no sense of community at all. No one goes out of their way for any kid there.
As far as the food, it does suck. They don't even have a microwave to heat the food up and its slop to begin with. I have refused to pay the lunch bill from my kids going there because the food was so disgusting that my kids wouldn't eat. Yes, food matters. Then on recess, they go out on the football field or hang in the parking lot because that is the only place for them to go at lunch and then you can find some condoms and smell the dope. It is the West of Westmoreland. I wouldn't send a dog there. I just wish I knew of these things before I had to learn from the experiences that my children and I have been through.
By the way, the high school is the same way. Nearly the worst in the state.

Vinson is a fine school. You get out of it what you put into it. My daughters went there and had no issues at all. It's the best middle school in the county - fwiw.
Kellogg is a very good school, or used to be.
hmmmm

To really?.....you either don't pay attention to the school, or you have been privileged enough to know the only good people that are there, and that is the poor folk.
Seriously, look around. How many doctors and nurses do you know? How many own their own businesses, anyone in government there? Wow, open your eyes.
