Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
The school defiantly has a zero tolerance policy toward students bullying each other.



- a
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.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
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.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The principle ignored, and was foul to most students. No leadership, just bad attitudes.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
They seem to turn a blind eye on the way students behave towards each other, but they are very into their oddly specific dress code.


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
The teachers refused to look over my 504 plan, and were hostile and not approachable, or willing to help a student with a learning disability.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The whole staff seem to genuinely like each other and work as a team to create a healthy and supportive environment for the students as well as themselves.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Students are challenged without being drowned. I also enjoy that some of the teachers refer to it as "homefun."


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
CIVA's teachers and administration focus on the development of the full student, not just the marks on the report card



- a
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.
