This school is a fantastic example of what can be done if teachers are given some freedom to teach and students are allowed freedom of expression... Unlike other magnet schools , this school is an arts high school, not primarily focused on an academic discipline, rather expectations are that students will excellent!

We have been transferred from New Jersey to several states across the country. I grew up in Northern Virginia at a high school that had everything (even a planetarium). The Las Vegas Academy is, by far, the BEST school my kids (or myself) have ever attended! The teachers are easily the caliber of a quality private college, the counselors help you with scholarships, college readiness, or just changing a class. They want their students happy and, I am told by my daughter, that they are enjoying themselves and get along with everyone. My kids easily got into the college of their choice, as did their friends. My daughter learned Japanese and German at the same time, another French and Japanese but the Arts program is outstanding ... beyond what words can describe they are so brilliant. If you are get into LVA, thank your lucky stars because some day, you'll most likely be one!

The Las Vegas Academy, a public magnet school, is amazing is many ways! The teachers make it enjoyable to learn and students want to be there. Everyone gets along with everyone as they are accepted for who they are. The counselors are the best! They will work with you endlessly for scholarships, college prep, adding a major (you pick a major in high school here). You'll find kids playing guitar during lunch, you can learn Japanese, French, Spanish, be an Art, Dance, Theater major, even Guitar major while taking honors and AP classes as you go to school an extra hour a day to learn your major. They bring in top professionals in each field on a regular basis to teach the "tricks of each trade". LVAs school plays are like Broadway productions! Play "Miss Saigon" they used a real (but hollow) helicopter on stage that they raised up as people who wanted to leave the war clung on. My 2 kids that have graduated got accepted in many colleges with scholarships (NYU, Boston U) and made almost straight As they were so well prepared by LVA. It is an honor and privilege to go to Las Vegas Academy and I feel blessed that my children were and are able to do so.

This school is a wonderful school it helps kids who are talented get the education and the advance natural learning of their talented abilities. It really looks good on your resume if you are filling out an application for a job or audition, it also look good when you sign up for a college. The only thing is you have to be very serious when you enter this school. If you get sellected into this school you probably have to make a lot of sacrifices, and you have to be very mature. You have to give it your all and make sure you try your best. If you take it seriously than they'll take you seriously. :)

My daughter LOVES this school. She is a freshman this year and while she has always been an excellent student, this is the first time I have ever seen her EXCITED to go to school and PROUD to be attending her school. She loves all the kids and teachers and how accepting and helpful everyone is. This school is AMAZING. I had always heard that LVA was the best school in Las Vegas but I never understood why until my daughter was accepted and we experienced it for ourselves. I cannot say enough good things about it. We feel extremely fortunate that she attends this school.

My daughter is an LVA student and I could not be more impressed with the school, the teachers, the staff, and the students. The students are accepting of one another, they are outgoing, the moral is high, and these students work towards success. The teachers expect a lot out of the students and provide every tool to help them succeed; the teachers are involved as well as the staff. There is a no tolerance policy that is strictly adhered to and the students respond well to this. My daughter has gone from not liking school to loving it; she doesn't want to miss a day. Every school in Clark County should be doing what LVA is doing; it works!

I went to LVA my freshman year. Overall, it was an awful experience for me. The campus was filthy and crumbling apart. I even got strep throat for a week because I drank from a tainted water fountain in their gym. The teachers were nothing above average. I would assume that they would have outstanding teachers due to all of the praise the school gets, but that didn't seem to be the case. There were cramped class sizes and unfortunately got stuck with a few boring science and math teachers and ended up with a poor grade in both classes. Another issue I had with this school were the outrageously rude and apathetic hall monitors and deans.They showed no respect for my feelings.The majors programs are definitely a good reason to go to this school, but the students within your major might not be the extremely passionate people you'd expect.I was a band major and the students in my section always complained about either the band directors, band members, or their music and often goofed off when we should have been practicing. LVA is doubtlessly the most over rated school I have ever seen. There is nothing magical that it has the other magnet schools don't other than added diversity

The Las Vegas Academy. My 2 daughters attend this amazing and powerful school. One graduated as a dance major and is doing well in College. She came out well equioed to handle life with an incredible background in dance and academis. She made it in to a top California university! Any Teen that gets in to this school will have the best of everything!! My other daughter loves it also and its full of life and culture!!I I can not say enough for this outstanding school, the principal, counselers, administration etc. You will suceed if you make it in here and do everything. Every child in there is a leader and they just make you full fill your character, detrmination and make you the person you are meant to find in yourselfand be a star!!! Proud to say that my daughters are living proof of this Performing arts school in the downtown area which makes it worth the drive and more!!

This school not only demands students achieve academically it encourages and supports their growth and development in the area of the arts. There is no other school the provide young people the opportunity to become well rounded young adults. The contributions they will make to our country and our world because of the encouragement and inspiration they receive to be all that they can be will be tremendous. I found this education to be so positive in the growth of my granddaughters that I have encourage many friends to see if their young ones can be accepted into this learning experience.

I am the aunt of two nieces that have and presently are attending LVA. I cannot express in words how thankful I am for the fine education and team building they have experienced since attending this amazing teaching institution. I know from hearing their shared enthusiasm about LVA, that this once in a lifetime exposure to quality teaching and caring facility will help them make honorable and well thought out decisions in their future endeavors.

I came from a particularly good public high school and transferred to LVA. The parents complaining here about the teachers seem to be a little bit confused. If a student needs help, they are expected to go and ask for it. Since the kids admitted are above average, they have more expected from them. The teachers here are all as good as the best teachers at my old school, and that's saying something.

The people that are saying that LVA only has such high ratings, because they only let kids with high achievement are totally correct. This school does not do much, if anything at all, to help any kids who are talented in the arts, but perhaps may have a problem or two with academics. They just boot them out as soon as there is any problem that might affect their ratings. They are not interested at all in really helping a kid learn. There are teachers here that will not even return a test to the kids so that they know what they missed, and can study what they need to re-learn. What kind of education is that? Their ratings are not because of anything they do to earn them, they are what they are, because the only students they keep are the ones who can achieve academically on their own. There are good points about this school, but, I could never say that they are all that interested in educating kids. They are interested in their ratings, and how much they can brag.

Academy or "The LVA Way", reminds me of the way schools use to be long long back. There is a sense of pride, focus on achievement, willingness to be unconventional and you see scores of similarly thinking creative, hardworking minds. I was there a few weeks for induction, and avidly watched students, their actions, teachers and their communication. I would say Its an eye opening experience and I am convinced that this one of the best schools if not the best that is publicly funded in Clark County. A reviewer has pointed out LVA picks the best of students and that's why they Excel. well guess what, that's demand and supply 101, I would rather accept a fair equitable way than a lottery system for selection. Imagine your Beethoven/Mozart/Einstein/Tesla teen could be a 4.0 GPA and still may not get to go to those facilities because of the lottery. In my mind it should be GPA alone or entrance test, along with prior teacher recommendations to get in. LVA is a magnet school which is fair to students by selecting based on minimum 2.5 GPA and students skills in Arts, where the school specializes. I will post my experience through next 4 years to know what to expect as a parent.

My daughter has grown as both a student and a dancer, benefiting from the best of the best. Her teachers are nothing short of phenomenal (of course in any school there are always a teacher or 2 sprinkled in who will never end up as favorites.. but that's just life) . I wouldn't change this experience for her one iota. She is challenged daily and proud of her accomplishments. Teachers recognize kids who strive for their goals. I carpool and drive 45 min. to pick her up and an hour to get back home due to traffic. I would drive twice that to bring her to LVA. She adores her friends, they all have similar goals and a hard working, good girls who really want to achieve. I have not encountered a teacher yet who has not gone out of their way to help in any way possible. We give LVA rave reviews everywhere we go - so why not here, too. If your son or daughter is accepted, don't let it be an opportunity missed. Carpool, or rely on the buses - it is well worth it.

From what I can tell, if your child is already highly talented before they arrive then they will be fine. However, if your child needs any guidance whatsoever the school will do little to extend itself. In a parent teacher meeting( which I had to pursue for over month) I had a teacher tell me point blank that she doesn't like children and that she doesn't like being responsible for other people. I had another teacher essentially tell me that she didn't bother to call me back when my daughter started experiencing academic difficulties because she decided that my daughter was self-sabotaging and wasn't worth the effort. Finally, yet another teacher flunked my daughter on a project that she worked extremely hard on with the help of her sister who graduated from a prestigious college with high honors. This despite the project going above and beyond what was asked for. All in all I have been extremely unimpressed by Las Vegas Academy. The counselors mean well but the teachers are on the whole completely subpar. In my opinion LVA is a school that is far too pleased with its own self-generated hype despite its offerings being mediocre at best.

Our son, a sophomore, LOVES this school, and we do too! It is a fantastic school for any kid that is passionate about his/her talent, wants challenging academics, and enjoys diversity and positive attitudes. The teachers are impressed by the kids' dedication to their majors and commitment to academics; the principal pushes the teachers and students to excel in all areas; and parents have many opportunities to get involved. It's worth the extensive daily travel time!

As a parent of a student graduating this year and one who graduated 4 years ago, I can state without question this is an amazing school.The full staff is so helpful,the teachers-caring and the students remarkable.To go to this school you have to audition be it in any of the arts or international studies.Yes, the atmosphere is interesting ,but lets not forget it is a school which specializes in the arts.Zero bullying the kids are all different in MANY ways so no one stands out.Teachers will push you as far as YOU want to go.the sky is the limit.Yes downtown is close ,but it is in a safe urban environment.

Academics are very good at this school. Teachers and staff are excellent! Counselors very, very good as well. The problem with this school is the location. Right down town next to Fremont Street. This can create a problem. There are unfortunately opportunities for drugs such as drug houses very close as well. It is a very, very good school but if you are sending your child here make sure they are mature and able to handle a college like setting!

LVA is the best school Clark County has to offer. Having recently graduated after spending all four years of high school there, I believe I am qualified to make that assumption. Yes, some of the teachers can be irritating to deal with on a daily basis, but they are doing their jobs. Yes, the classes can be hard, but would you rather your child not be challenged? This high school became my second home for four years. I do not know what I would have done at another school. You become so close to the class you are with since there aren't really that many students in the first place. I graduated with around 350 students. We all grew together and became very close friends. LVA has the best to offer regarding art programs AND education. As long as you keep your interest in your major, the high school experience will be the best you will ever have. Regardless of not having any sports. I would recommend this school to any parent or student. It is worth giving a shot at.

LVA is an amazing school filled with people who are not just acquaintances, but a family. The students and staff at LVA are so accepting and caring, it's almost unreal. As a student at the Las Vegas Academy, I am proud to say that I attend a school that actually feels like a loving, supporting environment. There is generally no bullying or judging because, even though the school is large, we all know each other, or know people who know us. We don't look at others and automatically assume they are different. We look at them and think 'Hey. That person knows who they are and they're proud of it.' After all, who are we to judge? Who are we to assume? At the Las Vegas Academy, that's we live by. We're a family. We treat each other like family. That's how a school should be.

I graduated from Las Vegas Academy in 2008 and attended the school for all four years. LVA does so much for its students by preparing them for college and giving them the social skills to also conquer the real world. Every concentration--or major--requires dedication from each student, which teaches them what plain hard work is, from time management to the importance of practice. Each major also has corresponding extracurriculars and typical school clubs are offered too, such as Student Council and Key Club. On top of that, if students want a new club, they can form one! In my day, there was a Magic Club--how cool is that?! The teachers in majors as well as academic are quality instructors as well as individuals. They truly care and try to push students to learn more and work harder. The same goes for the administration--they constantly sit in on classes, attend student performances, show tons of support, and know many of the students by name. As in many schools, you get what you give. If your child tries out for a musical or join any club, you ll see him/her blossom into a responsible adult who can always rise to the occasion.

I don't like LVA...I love it! I'm a freshman theater major and my school is the bomb(: the teachers encourage you to push beyond your limits and break free of the mold. whoever said that our school is too liberal and is pushing the boundaries, we sure do! Mr. long, our fabulous principle, really knows what he's doing! he makes sure that the classes are going well and sits in on them a lot! He was in my theater class when we were doing improvisations and he was hysterical! He congratulated us at the end of class and it made me feel really good about myself. I will be at LVA til they force me to leave when I graduate, but I'll never want to(:

I graduated from LVA, and I firmly believe that no other high school could have better prepared me for college on every level. It has not only strengthened my creativity and dance skills, but it has made me a more open minded, tolerant, respectable, and (frankly) tough-skinned person. The teachers truly care about their students, academic and major alike. You have to work hard and yes, suffer some emotional damages (not getting the lead, knowing somebody is more advanced than you). There is a positive pressure put on every student to be the best they individual they can be. All of my teachers and my counselor helped me in choosing, applying, and getting into college. They did this without reluctance; they genuinely cared. I find that I am more mature than other students at my college, and that I was much more prepared for college than my peers who did not attend LVA. I will not be a professional dancer, and I still believe that LVA has done me worlds of good in the classroom, studio, and society.

My child has attended LVA as a Choir major for the past two years. While there have been some upsetting changes, overall we are pleased and feel this is the best high school option in the area. We do pay out of pocket for athletics since there is NO athletic program. One concern worth mentioning to anyone considering this school is the very liberal "freedom of speech" policy. At what point do political correctness and promotion/endorsement of homosexuality cross the line and become inappropriate in a high school setting? There also seems to be a prevailing lack of respect for this nations principles, traditions, and history. Some faculty members teach these young, impressionable minds that it is OK to not stand for the Pledge of Allegience. This, in my opinion, is simply unacceptable! This is NOT true for all faculty, but it often seems that religion or the traditional morals and values of mainstream America are frowned upon or regarded at "antiquated." Overall, this IS a good school, but be prepared to be frustrated!

I am the parent of two kids at LVA, in different majors. This is a wonderful environment for our children. Not all of the academic teachers inspire great achievement and learning, but for a public high school in Clark County, they do fine and there are challenging honors classes and many dedicated teachers. Mr. Long, the Principal, is terrific on all levels from a parent perspective and works very hard to address parent concerns.

I love Las Vegas Academy because it's a one of a kind type of school. The students work really hard at their majors and with their academics. It is a magnet school for performing and visual arts so we differ from a regular high school. The students are all unique and living in Las Vegas it's hard to find a school where everyone fits in somewhere. It's not a regular high school which is why I love it.

I am currently a sophmore at LVA, and I have found that in order to go here, you have to be severely committed to your major(Im a theater major). They have stressful schedules, and lots of requirements, but at times it pays off. I have found that if you want to have qan agent or go on auditions out of state for auditions, the theater teachers frown down on it and the school isnt very flexible when it comes to you missing school for a few days, like a regular high school. This is why I have to go to my zoned high school, so my grades won't slip and I can get the experience of an actual actress going on audionions in california and elsewhere instead of just learning about it in school.

If your child is extremely passionate about the arts and will definitely pursue something in that field, then LVA offers top tier training. However, this school is sub-par in gearing their students for the world outside of entertainment. The academics are at the minimum of standard, just getting by, really. Language arts, mathematics, sciences - anything outside of theatre and music - are not highly stressed. In other words, if you want your child to succeed after graduation, hire a good agent

No matter the type of person you are, you fit in some way or another and we all see and admire our differences. It's amazing who you meet and what you learn, especially in your major.

I'm a senior at LVA and everyday I'm reminded that I made the right choice in attending this school. I am always surrounded by academically motivated students and there's enough diversity that there's a niche for anyone. I'm glad I majored in dance and I feel that the program is still strong despite the creation of a pre-beginning class that will accept nearly anyone. The academic classes are strong and combined with the artistic majors produce a well-rounded education. The social studies teachers here are passionate about their classes (history, government) and have convinced me to pursue that field.

You get to go into the major of your choice and we learn material in our majors that college student would learn.

I am a Freshman art major, currently in my 2nd semester of being here at LVA. I have to say I'm really love it so far. Everyone is so nice and helping to each other, and this is the most open school you'll ever find. Everyone accepts peoples' differences and tolerate everyone. All of the departments are great, from theatre to music, to art, to foreign language, etc. What I disliked so far is the cooky principal phasing out German class and taking off creative writing! But overall, it's a great...no, the best school in the state of Nevada. And the extracurricalrs and fieldtrips are great, too! We get to go on tour in places like Europe, Japan, Austrailia, etc. I love LVA!

My daughter is in her third year at LVA. She is in the Advanced Piano program and her program teacher is great. The school does offer an open if a bit liberal environment to learn and grow into an adult. The theater department is second to none. Known for it's excellence, if your child is looking to theater, the program is very sucessful. Given that the school is one of the oldest and situated in the downtown area, the feel of the cultural experience can be somewhat semi-urban and different than typical Las Vegas high schools.

LVA is in the top 15 of all public high schools in the United States. It's programs have won many awards and accolades, including the Grammy. This year the Theatre Department has the honor of producing the national production of 'Ragtime' (first student production and to be recorded on CD, I understand) for the International Thespian Conference. My daughter has had an outstanding educational experience at LVA that has allowed her to grow into an intelligent, responsible, creative, hardworking individual. The teachers care deeply about each student and this concern is reflected in their attention to each student's talents, abilities, strengths, and needs. I wish I had known about LVA so all my children could have attended. For that matter, I wish I could go to school there!

My daughter has found a place where her piano artistry is really appreciated. She has many new friends bound by interests and the ability to excel academically. I know she is safe mentally, spiritually and physically at LVA. Thanks for making my daughter's high school years really mean something.
