This school does not offer an individualized approach, they are not willing to work with students with learning disabilities, the principle is very prejudice, and never gave me a chance. This is also not an art school it is a college prep school.
I was not a problem, I was having one.
NO, NO WAY
i have a traumatic brain injury and the school claimed to have an individualized learning approach with small classrooms, and i promise they did not pay any mind to my learning disability. The principal told me that he doesn't give students who don't excel as much effort or respect as other students. He didn't even learn my name before he decided that i wasn't worth his time.
This school has no counsellors or para professional educators. I felt humiliated and stupid for my learning disorder, this is not the school for students who don't fit the mold, no matter what they say.
CIVA's small atmosphere and individualized focus on learners is outstanding! My eldest, who needed additional help to turn his academics around after a bad experience of apathetic teachers in middle school became a dean's list student with the help of the hard-working CIVA staff. My youngest, who is an extremely advanced 7th grader, is going to be heading to CIVA for high school as I know the teachers there will be able to keep her challenged and engaged instead of bored as so many advanced students are in most modern high school settings.
