About This School

Vanguard Academy is located in Pharr, TX and is in Vanguard Academy School District. It is a charter school that serves 1062 students in grades PK-11.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Vanguard Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

In 2011, Vanguard Academy had 16 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Texas average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
