Van Nuys Middle School Reviews
Van Nuys Middle School is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood in Sherman Oaks. I feel that my children have received a good quality in education. The teachers are willing to work with you and your children. I think that that is the reason for my kids success in school. As a parent, it is our responsibility to make sure that our kids do their homework, study and read. We can't just send them to school and expect the school to teach them everything and play no part in their education.
