The teachers are all experienced professionals, with advanced credentials, and several years experience. The teachers founded this school and their experience and passion show in way they teach, the pride shown in the campus, and the care they show the students. Academics are emphasized, and students who need extra help, get it. The school's emphasis is on literature and writing, but there are plenty of extras, P.E., Arts, Science and the teachers themselves run the 6 to 6 program, free of charge. There are multiple, affordable options for after-school enrichment, Science Club, Fine Arts, Yoga, Service Learning Club, among others. All students get expert instruction in Tae Kwon Do building both physical fitness, confidence, and coordination. The administration is responsive, and eager for input and ideas. My child has blossomed here, academically and has gained a new confidence. All of the children are respectful, polite, and take pride in their school. Parents are welcome at the school, and volunteers are well-appreciated. I whole-heartedly recommend SDGVA to any parent looking for a safe, supportive school, that expects academic excellence from its charges.
