Smaller student body, so teachers are better able to know and teach the students. Spirited staff that interacts with and encourages students to reach their potential through school activities and project based assignments.
LVCP does a GREAT job in preparing my students for college. They offer not only AP classes; but many College classes as well. When it comes time to apply for colleges, the teachers are more than willing to do what they can to make the student SHINE!
LVCP is a great school. The student/teacher is one that you cannot find anywhere else. We decided to have our child come to LVCP instead of going to her home school in San Ramon because of the different learning style and approach this school offers. San Ramon is known for its schools and choosing to opt out and come out to LVCP speaks volume.
Welcome to the greatest little school in the Tri-Valley! At LVCP, your student will not just be a number, and they surely will not slip through the cracks. Our teachers and staff take pride in giving all students exactly what they need to ensure success. Our goal from their first day to their last is to drive, train, and motivate your student(s) to highly achieve in their post high school education. Through a project-based curriculum, students at LVCP are trained to collaborate, problem solve, and communicate effectively. The foundation of LVCP is an exemplary academic program, and an inclusive campus culture that values diversity and makes all students feel safe.
LVCP has been very supportive of my student. In addition to his regular LVCP class load, they have made sure he has access to the advanced classes he needs at Las Positas College. LVCP has a great relationship with Las Positas College and that is great news for the students.
Reasons why we chose this school: 1. Block scheduling 2. Smaller school environment. 3. Each student is provided a laptop for school-year use, which stores their school files, notes, and e-copies of their school books, etc. 4. School is run by a CMO non-profit public benefit corporation with a Board of Directors that runs several charter schools. The school is not subject to conform to the District's way of traditional way instruction. They must still meet the California performance standards and accountability requirements like the other public schools, but they can provide other styles of learning and methodology. 5. Uses Project-based learning methodology (PBL) 6. All the teachers are fully credentialed, not part of a union, no seniority levels, hired 'at-will', and yearly teaching evaluation. 7. Has a variety of electives in the areas of music, arts, technology, and world languages with advanced equipment 8. Good selection of interscholastic athletic programs 9. Academic courses geared towards UC/CSU admission, ability for students to take college credits with college professors teaching several subjects a week within the school. And AP courses also offered.
My son has been attending LVCP for three years. The staff is extraordinary. They are willing to listen to both the parent and the student. My younger son will be attending as well. Great college prep school.
Livermore Valley Prep. School is WONDERFUL! It fully prepares the students for higher education. Challenges them on every level. Courses offered are excellent and various allowing the students to begin working towards their career choices. I will be enrolling my daughter next year!
My son chose LVCP because of the college-level courses offered that were taught by college professors. Of course, this website's rating does not reflect that because Star Tests and AP tests do not apply to college courses. His SAT score of 2360 tells me he chose well, and that LVCP prepared him for life beyond high school.
