I'm a freshman at LVA and already in the second quarter i know that I will stay at LVA for all four years. The teachers really care about how their students are doing, and there is something for everyone! You could never not fit in at LVA, everyone is always accepting! I am a band major and the band is fantastic here! If you are even thinking about auditioning to come LVA give it a shot! You won't regret it!
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.
Words are not enough to describe this school. You'll just have to experience it yourself! If you are an aspiring artist, musician, etc. that wants a high quality eduaction at the same time, then this school is a definite hot spot.
LVA is an excellent school with great teachers and great performing arts programs. If you or your child want to perform, this is the high school to go to!
I think that this school is a great one. It has very good test rates, and it specializes in many different creative areas.
LVA is the best school in the district. It encourages creativity and enhances students ability in the arts. I'm currently a choir major and since I've started, I've loved every minute of it. The teachers have creative and fun ways to teach and the student body are all so open and friendly. Your child could never not fit right in with everyone.
I am a Freshman this year and so far, these 3 weeks have been better than any other of my school years! :D The enviornment is so friendly, everyone's kind to one-another and the classes are fun! I know my experince at LVA will be very memorable :]
I am currently a senior theatre and ohotography major at Las Vegas Academy and it has to be the best school in all of Clark County. There are absolutely no fights of any kind and the enviroment is a whole lot better than one you'd find at a public high school. You get to go into the major of your choice and we learn material in our majors that college student would learn. I'm not well versed to go into college knowing everything I would've learned my whole first year.
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!
I am a freshman at the Academy. I love it there. It is not like any other highschool. Not only are the upperclassmen nice to people, everyone is there to learn and have a good time. You won't ever have an experience like the one at LVA.
My name is jesi lee, im a senior at the las vegas academy and I am a Visual arts major. This school is such a wonderful school... I have been there all four years and am now in a college level Advance Placement studio art class. The teachers are unique and very involved with both academics and majors. There are no fights but more acceptance that go on each day. It is a place where you know the students WANT to be... or we wouldnt wake up at 4 in the morning and ride the bus for an hour and still beg to stay after the 2 oclock bell, to paint, to sing, to practice our instruments. It is a school unlike anyother.
I'm a cellist/student at the academy and I absolutely love it. Although the thing about the academy is if your not one of the best your set aside and spat on mainly skipped treated like dirt, luckily I'm one of the best!LVA is very cultured, and every student is extremely bright!
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.
