This school is wonderful it is a great learning environment for all of my children. They have all excelled in learning and have grown leaps and bounds over other children there own age. It has a strict policy on the dress code and NO BULLING. The school is safe for all the children and I can see this school style excelling into the future.

I just recently graduated with my High School Diploma from Venture Academy, and being there since 7th grade, I have to say, it is by far the best school out there, definitely different then your average school. I love it because the teachers do everything in their power to help you and will work with you, through everything you need. I wish I could go back, I mae so many friends, and will definitely miss the amazing experience that they have offered me.

Our family has been with this school since 2005 up until this current year 2010/2011 school year. Our family has been a very active part of this school including our three children. Until this current year we have enjoyed it, even with the communication flaws. This year the school has doubled in size leaving MORE room for the ill communication. I would NOT recommend anyone to attend the modified Daily attendance (MDA) 1st grade both teachers are worthless. 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 4th grade teachers are worth every effort effort to be a part of that school. Administration is worthless have very little concern with the best interest of the students, it is what best interests them first, then if it works for them they will include the best interest of the student. I am sure it will worsen as the school gets a higher enrollment due to the desperate families wanting what they have heard is a good school. If you good school at Venture the Synergy Program is great LOVED it for all grade levels. Check out K 12 ...one word "AWESOME!" Good luck in your great school search.

I'm in Eighth grade and I really love this school. I came from a public school and I have social phobia and the kids in my class are so nice and understanding,its actually scary! My other school, the kids were really rude and offensive. I've only been here 3 months and I wish I was here from the start! I love it so much. The Teachers actually TEACH you instead of sit you there and hand you papers to do. The teachers are nice,funny and kind. The office and staff are always helping and are kind. I greatly recommend going here.

Venture has the best alturnative program in the valley. It has educated 3 of my 4 adopted children and is currently educating my son who is in the 12th grade and started with Venture in the sixth. These kids started at Venture becuase they were not performing in the regular school system (straight F's). 2 of the 4 graduated from high school 1 has matriculated back into a regular high school for the sports programs and 1, my son, is currently a 12th grader at Durham Ferry.

We pulled our son out of MUSD. It seems as if teachers have no time to teach and quite a bit of wasted classroom time (ONLY because of the student:teacher ratio). Our son is advanced (STAR) and was stressed at his old school. NOW, school and stress are no longer part of the same sentence. He IS learning and being challenged - and still has free time at home (no 3 hours of homework) to be a child. Kudos to the staff! A word to the wise; IF you are coming from a Public School environment this is definitely a culture shock and takes a bit of getting used to due to the NON TRADITIONAL approach this academy takes with its students! They actually take the time to teach TO the student not AT the class.

Our daughter has attended the Venture Academy Modified daily atendance school for 6th through 8th grades. The school is located at the Outdoor educatsion center in Manteca. This school has been absolutly wonderful for her. The focus has been on developing creative writing skills. She is advaced in math. She has been allowed to pusue independent study using the Saxon math series. The teachers have been very interactive, sitting down with us for parent-teacher conferences and addressing all conserns we have had. I would highly recommend this school.
