It is a great school with a wonderful staff. Livermore Valley Charter School is very clean and is an ideal choice for students. Not may schools in California have a PE teacher!

I am the proud mother of two very happy children attending Livermore Valley Charter School. My daughter has been to four schools including a Montessori, and Catholic school and says she's never been more challenged, or engaged than at the LVCS. She is an honor roll student for 7 yrs of schooling. She LOVES it! My son has been to 2 schools and also loves the LVCS the most. What can I say other than, its a great school, and if you are on a waiting list, stay on it, its worth the wait, i PROMISE!

AN EXCELLENT SCHOOL. THEY CARE ABOUT THE KIDS AND CLASSES ARE SMALL AND GREAT ACTIVITIES INVOLVING PARENTS AND STUDENTS.

Our school has a lot going on. A lot of parents volunteer so the school can do so much more. The principal has a lot of energy and puts the students and teachers first. I am not sure how many elementary schools have an art, Spanish, music, art and PE specialist. LVCS does. LVCS also has relatively small class sizes, and coupled with parent volunteers, kids can get individual attention. We love our school.

Best school we've ever attended! We've had our kids at Valley Christian, Our Savior and Smith Elementary...and by far this is the best school ever. The staff is highly skilled at every level from the custodian to the Principal! The focus is on the kids and education..with a passion. Special kids are included in all classes and activities...in our private schools the special kids were isolated to one classroom and one special ed teacher. Gifted kids are also included in all classes and activities...they are not elevated above others as they were at Smith school. LVCS is diverse in population because it does not pull kids from one central neighborhood as the local public schools do. The only downside to this school is that it is constantly put down by the other parents, teaches and teachers unions at local schools and it's unfair to our kids, parents and staff. We were on the waiting list 6 years before our kids got in to the school and we are very thankful. With 600 kids on the waiting list..I'd say this is an excellent school! After you get one child in, then the other children will be moved up the waiting list. It's worth the wait.

Great school! They make learning fun and interesting for the kids. I have seen a tremendous growth on my son's academic skills. He is more interested in learning even after school and enjoys that he is challenge at lvcs.

I can not say enough about how wonderful this school is. I have a child with learning disabilities and the resource staff here is more than I could have ever dreamed of for my child. I love how involved all the parents are and how open the communications is between faculty, admin, and parents. A day never goes by that I don't know what is going on in the school. My children come home with new bits of information and they are so excited to share what's going on in the classroom and what they are learning now. I just can not get enough of this school.

Livermore Valley Charter School has been a wonderful school to have my children attend. My son is doing so much better in school and the teachers have been a great help and work with the students. My daughter absolutly loves her class and teachers. The communication between the teachers and me as their parent has been great. The new location is wonderful and the classrooms are great.

LVCS exceeded our expectations! With the music, art and spanish classes that are a part of every day curriculum! It has been such a wonderful transition from our neighborhood school. My boys are getting so much more at our school than they would be at a district school. The families at LVCS are very enthusiastic and donate so much of their time to help our school be what it is. FANTASTIC!

Wonderful principal and teachers, involved parents make our school a positive experience for our children. Yes, there are definitely areas to be improved. I'd like to see a better response from the principal(s) when it comes to dealing with bullies. We have many areas at our new campus that have yet to be improved. It seems many things were promised and yet haven't been delivered in the 9 years my children have been in attendance. Will they be in place by the time my youngest is an 8th grader? I think the problem mainly lies in the CEO of TVLC. How long will we wait to see an auditorium and sports fields and a secure campus. We also need updated desks, science and art tables. Our new library is lacking in size and seems to not be considered as important a resource by the CEO as it should be. Despite these concerns, our school has the most devoted teachers. Our children benefit from looping in grades 1&2, 3&4. We have specialists who teach music, Spanish, art, phys ed and science. An active PTO who coordinates many enjoyable envents for our school community. The teachers and principal are the best thing about our school.

I feel very lucky that my children are students at LVCS. This is a school that utilizes modern, innovative teaching methods; continuously evaluates and changes strategies as needed in order to improve; employs outstanding, enthusiastic teachers and administrators; keeps my kids safe; utilizes parent involvement very effectively as an educational tool; and strives to provide the best possible education for it's students. In the spirit of continuous improvement I give the school 4 out of 5 stars, because there is always room for growth! The truth is, having the opportunity to send my kids to this school was literally like "wining the lottery". It is the best possible education I can attain for them.

It's amazing how much my daughter has grown in such a short time. I love LVCS! I knew after listening to a few of my teacher friends rave about what an amazing school it was and how they wished their kids could go there. I'm so thankful we got in.

I am so thankful for this school! The teachers are superb - and always go the extra mile for my kids. In fact, just this morning my daughter was talking about how fun her school is, and how lucky she is. There is a lot of support for parent involvement and communication. I have volunteered with classes at all grade levels, on various projects, and have not meet one teacher that I did not like. They are all very present, and work hard to keep things fresh and interesting. The teachers work within their grade level and with the levels above and below them to make sure students are learning what they need to - and staying on track. Add to that weekly Spanish and Art starting in first grade, weekly P.E. and music starting in Kinder, along with Science and after school clubs - this school excels at every level. The principal is very available to parents. If there is a school issue, or student issue, she has set aside time to address whatever questions you may have. We are very lucky.

I am very proud to be an LVCS parent. Besides our high standards and achievements academically, our school offers our students an enriching integrated curriculum that includes Art, Music & Spanish. A curriculum that is usually found in Private and not Public schools. Skills learned through these disciplines also transfer to study skills, communication skills, and cognitive skills useful in the strengthening of math, reading, creative thinking and visual arts skills.

In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
