Reading the reviews posted it is easy to know which parent has written them. I would like to say that many affirmations made in there posts are assumptions and not based on facts. It hurts my feelings that a parent has stated that our test results were so good the first year because the students came from other schools where they already taught them the concepts. At GVA, we suffered enourmously the first year because our Math curriculum is very high compared with any other curriculum taught in the US. The students in 3rd grade barely knew how to compute or solve problems. The 3rd and 4th grade team gather together twice a week to plan and find solutions to the problem. We worked so hard to teach those students basic Math, and later we could teach them Singapore Math, And when the results came we were proud of our work. And all of it was taught in another language! Isn't that amazing? Please, make sure you have been in the school enough time to critize and condem our work, We are teachers who work extremely hard to teach the core subjects in another language, and the results show it.

I had high hopes for this school but it is a very poor run charter school. From the outside it seems somewhat okay but the more you learn about the school the more concerned you become. The school is very mismanaged and is highly controlled by GVCC. All decisions are directed or highly influenced by the CEO and GVCC. Board members at GVCC and GVA schools are hand selected by a small group. Information to board members is very controlled and filtered. Staff are promoted or hired for positions they are not qualified to do. Expanding rapidly is GVCC's primary concern not educating children. Everything that could be bad at a charter school is found at this school. The school is greatly lacking basic supplies-such as paper and books. Students are offered very few specials (3 times a week for 30 min). Lunch/recess is only 30 minutes and students barely have time to eat. Some classes are given an additional recess if the teacher chooses. Safety and bullying are huge problems at this school and very little to nothing is done about it. Candy and taking away recess are often used for rewards/punishments. Sadly, this is the only school offering language immersion in Adams 12.

Watching the students speak his or her immersion language with the teacher is one of the neatest experiences. I've never been in a school where there is so much teacher/parent/student involvment. Also, I am really excited to see what New Tech is going to bring to the school in the way of more/better technology!

I will say the immersion teachers are wonderful!! My family LOVES and Supports the all the teachers and staff! Wow, to the person who says you don't like it get involved where are you living under a rock? As a parent I am very involved and have been happy until the recent discussion of new middle school program of New Tech. Being told by the GV-CC Christian Burton Howell "you don't like start your own chart" is not really a positive response to how the school can afford New Tech program NTN. This school that already and will owe 1.2 million dollar balloon payment in the next 2 years or a building that we cannot own. Also, it is disturbing when you go to a board meeting and here Kirk the GV-CC/N member says "We don t need to speak to loud." What are they hiding???? And over hearing the leader of the building the principal yell at parents makes me wonder how she handles the students!

The school is fairly new (3 years old) but it is great place for anybody who wishes to raise their child(ren) bilingual. The teachers are excellent: they teach the students not only languages but also culture of their respective foreign country. The new principal is outstanding, very responsive, knowledgeable and caring. As most charter schools, GVA-N encourages parent involvement and provides plenty of volunteer opportunities. So, quiet honestly, to all the less then perfect reviews of this school out there - start being a part of the solution: get in your child's classroom, start volunteering, get to know your teacher and your child's classmates and you will have no reasons to complain!

I just want to be a voice that confirms everything said by the other posters. In fact, my child is in that Chinese class.There is a child who needs to be removed. Period. Poor leadership and policies are causing a serious bullying problem. They have a discipline coordinator who employs a program of rewarding the problem students (when they do well, like bribing). It doesn't work. I am familiar with the research and rationale but this child is a special case. They need to suspend children who cannot follow basic rules. This sends a message to the parent to get involved- or risk expulsion. Be effective (Now. Please.). On the other hand, my child, who lives a charmed life, is getting priceless exposure to some very difficult people and worldviews. We have religious fanatics, hyper military- types, the poorest poor AND the most affluent. He/she should come out of this tougher, brighter, faster, wittier, and with more overall skills; success skills like "grit" and determination. Oh, and he/she is fluent in Chinese. We just study at home to compensate for the lost class time. I cannot praise the teachers enough. Thank you for being amazing despite difficult circumstances.

We've been at this school since it opened up. My first son is now in second grade and my second son is a kindergartner. My daughter will be going there next year too. I really like this school. If you are looking to enroll your child, you have to be prepared for LOTS of homework. The only thing I don't like is pick up time. It's so congested that if you don't get there 15 mins early, you won't get into the parking lot till 3:15. That's the only thing that sucks.

Global village academy is a disaster! The concept of learning a foreign language was appealing to us but I soon found out its not only ineffective but takes away from the essential subjects. No art class. No music. Gym twice a week. Corporate sponsors line the playground with adds. They misappropriate funds. 90% of the teachers are only there because of their ability to speak a foreign language. In the meantime english, math, and science suffer. Inconsistencies with everything. They boast a no bullying policy but every time you report your kid is treated as the snitch. Just observing an average recess is telling. Rough play is an understatement. Infact a kid cracked his head open (literally) this year. The staff is apathetic and personally uninvolved. Dont put your kid in any charter school. They are driven by corperate funds. Its a buisness not a school. A poorly functioning buisness to boot. There budget is always in the red. On a personal note they traumatized my kindergardener by removing her teacher during Xmas break last year. There were crying 5 year olds and my kid is now afraid to bond with her teacher. What a joke this place is.

Bullying is,out of control at GVA-N. My child is constantly being picked on by peers. Inappropriate comments from classmates in immersion classes remains unaddressed by language teacher. Students verbally attack each other by snide comments if a fellow peer is not grasping the language as quickly. Chinese teachers allow the attacks and themselves, shame the children for not studying enough. 2.5 hrs a night is enough for a 9 yr old! Chinese teachers expectations are that of their upbringing in communistsic rule. My child has lost his confidence, and is psychologically beaten down. The principals response is that they are working to help Mandarin teachers acclimate to teaching etiquette of U.S. "Americans are fat and lazy" is what one Chinese teacher told my child's class, among other derogatory remarks. The school has no money yet continues to expand. Pick up and drop off are insanely dangerous as the parking lot does not accommodate the masses of vehicles and traffic flow in and out of property is utterly ridiculous! Next year will be a nightmare! Immersion schools are great if run responsibly, but not at this overcrowded Goodwill drop off equipped school. Lunches are lousy too.

Like others we had high hopes for this school. There is a complete lack of discipline though and bullies are NOT dealt with. Having been at this school since it opened three years ago we've had to endure more than our share of dealings with other children that think bad behavior (sometimes physical) is ok. Apparently the staff shares this view. High turnover is a big problem as well. The current administration, brand new this year, informed us that none of our child's teachers documented any of the bad behavior I described above. I think this is telling enough. We are currently looking for a new school for our child.

We had high hopes for this school and enrolled our child as a kindergartner the year it opened. Unfortunately, the school is only growing more chaotic. Here is a list of some of the reasons we are not returning and why we would not recommend GVA: The school s budget is always in the red; The class sizes are over 30 kids per class in kindergarten - and they can t afford a para; The front office staff won t look-up and greet people who walk-in (security?); The new principal is completely overwhelmed and unresponsive to parents concerns. The building is almost to capacity with no discussions about how to accommodate more students; The drop-off/pick-up is dangerous; The teachers may speak another language but lack good classroom management skills; The test scores posted on greatschools.org for the Northglenn campus do not accurately reflect GVA-N because students in the higher grades started their education at different schools before GVA-N opened. Before choosing GVA-N, checkout the test scores of their first charter school in Aurora - terrible.

My twins are in 2nd grade and they are developing complex thinking skills. Two languages at once since kindergarten is what I attribute what I consider to be a valuable skill now and in the future.

My nephews going to GVA-N. School has great programs. Teachers really doing great job at teaching kids not only math, reading and second language but also concentrating on a hand writing which is important as well.


Posted September 9, 2013

Any school is going to teach your child basic educational knowledge, but if you want to really give yourself a gift that they can't get anywhere else, think about immersing them in a second language at a school where they will feel welcomed and included. Since it is a new charter school they have limited space and playground still, but those things are working themselves out. I am confident this is the right choice for our Russian speaking daughter!

I just pulled my child out of there... I wasn't happy with my daughter's teacher. I wasn't happy with the new principal's response to my unhappiness with her teacher. The principal's response consisted of originally not responding to the voicemail that I left for her, then not showing up for the meeting I scheduled with her, and then after I was pawned off on someone else when she no-showed, never responding to the issues I was having. Some of the teachers there are fantastic and really do seem to care, but the principal leaves a lot to be desired... hence my daughter is going to a new school.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
