Posted April 25, 2011

We are near the end of a full year in ARVA. My son is in kindergarten and it has been awesome! I love the curriculum. I was a homeschool mom but worried I could teach a little one how to read and master so many sight words. ARVA provides the curriculum and even paint, magnets, clay, tambourine and lots more. There is a teacher who occasionally works with the student about twice a month to make sure he's learning everything he's supposed to. So, I know im doing it right and he's learning all he's supposed to according to my state standards. I am so impressed i have already signed him up for first grade :)

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
