Vanderbilt Reviews

There are lots of things that I enjoy about Vanderbilt Tx. This town where I live is not a tourist trap, it is not large, and it has a small population. All of those things combined make this place quiet and safe for my children and myself. Here we can walk or bike around the city and not worry about being run over by speeding cars. Though I have to admit the greatest thing about Vanderbilt Tx. has to be the public school. The school offers an unusual education experience. It has the feel of a private school yet it is a public institution.
