    Forsyth County Schools offer many opportunities for students to reach beyond the basic curriculum and engage in a variety of learning opportunities.


    At Vickery Creek Elementary...

    • Children go to physical education class twice-weekly.  During this time they learn games, sportsmanship, and how to be physically fit.

    • Students also go to art and music every week, where they participate in hands-on activities to broaden their horizons in fine arts.
