. I love the cultural nights, and the Science Fair has really grown this year.My daughter is taking violin. They also added dance/drama this year, so I feel she is getting a lot more than she would at the district, especially with their budget cuts--learning a second language, arts, PE, and good afterschool program.. Parking and pick up are still bad, but they were at my last school as well. GVA is building a new building for next year right behind the current one.
My daughter has been in the school for three years and is now scoring very high in math and language arts. The school has really grown as a community thanks to so many wonderful parents and the caring staff. As an added gift, students learn Mandarin, Spanish or French. My husband and I definitely reccommend it to any parent who wants something different from the traditional school setting.
worst parking for drop off and pick up ever. My daughters a kindergartner at this school and they did not give her, her lunch...they told her to hold on and never gave to her. I paid for the full month. This is not right letting a 5 year old starve like that. Called the school, but they just make excuses..tried to call again but cannot contact them. I am soooo angry.
Excellent education at GVA! In response to the last poster, 'GVA cleans employees clean their bathrooms as frequently as possible'. 'I challenge you to find a school where bathrooms are perfectly clean 100% of the time.'
The 2 teachers we have had have been excellent. Janitorial services are BADLY needed as the restrooms are disgusting at any hour of the day. The restrooms are visible in the lobby and all staff sees this problem but does nothing. Papertowels strewn on floors, toilets overflowing and toilet seats dirty. If you concentrate solely on the education your child recieves than this is truly a great school if you can overlook the messiness. It seems to always be improving.
This school has great teachers who are committed to an excellent learning environment. Smart boards in every classroom provide engaging and interactive lessons. They are truly providing for a global future for my child.
Very happy with this school, teachers and parents. In first grade our child is speaking 2 languages and math skills are above average. I am looking forward to the next 7 year at GVA.
GVA recently received a $1.4 U.S. Department of Education grant...endorsing the school as a leader in immersion. My daughter loves the Chinese program. Great art program as well...violin, dance and arts! school has it all.
Though the school is struggling to be at full-service (with bussing, school lunch, playground), it has already engaged my daughter far more than the local public school.
Outstanding leadership. Taking the right steps to make this a top notch school. Teachers are outstanding. Facilities are limited.....a kitchen would help immensely. Immersion program works very well.
Love this school. Ideals are high..International baccalaureate and immersion. It is new school with some challenges but overall I am very pleased. More parent involvemnet is needed. Currently very few parents do most of the volunteering. Great teachers.
Only the 2nd year school is open - getting better with each year. Immersion prgram working and policies changing wtih time - will go from a good to great school soon enough.
The school will get better and some day maybe bullying won't be tolerated, the immersion program will actually be a n immersion program and it will be a 'College prep' school. For now it's an elementary school that 's slowly moving forward but can't really be described as haing any of those attributes.
Good Language immersion program, college preparation. Bullying is not tolerated. Good school for just being open 1 year!
