VFS is Moving!

Due to our tremendous growth over the past five years, and the ever increasing interest in our program, VFS has been on the hunt for a new space. We're happy to announce that our search has come to an end! Starting January 3rd, 2018, Village Free School will be located at 1785 NE Sandy Blvd. We're excited for all the possibilities our new home has to offer!
