The best thing I have seen in education. It let's the special education student move at their own pace without having to feel pressure from the rest of the students. It allows gifted students to move along 2-3 years in course curriculum in one year if motivated. Incredible staff and brand new principals for the 09/10 year that are the best I have ever worked for. The parents really have to be involved with their child's education, which I saw sorely lacking in many brick & mortar schools I taught at. Best staff I have worked with also! I will not return to a brick & mortar again. Plus, we have field trips every month, which most schools can't afford.
Our school has the most fantastic administration and staff, not to mention students, and parents. The administration and staff are so dedicated to education in general and in helping all of our students to succeed and achieve to their full potential, and beyond. They put in more hours and work constantly to improve the quality of education, and for alot less money,than teachers who teach in brick and mortar. The parents strive to help their children any way they can, and make every effort to work as a team with teachers to make our school the best. We all have high expectations for students, parents, and teachers. Together we are the future, and our children will be totally prepared for what lies ahead of them.
I love NVVA because they have truly made a difference in the lives of Nevada children. The teachers are THE BEST! The curriculum is far superior to that of the local public schools and with one-on-one attention, children are set up to succeed.
They can reach more students over the internet, especially children that live in rural areas.
The best, most friendly, helpful staff in the world! Students get a wonderful online learning experience and opportunities for in-person socialization.
Our family is really excited about this school. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Curriculum is awesome. Everything is planned out very well. They really focus on teaching parents how to help their children be successful. This is a new and innovative way to educate children. It's a great alternative to over crowded schools.
The school uses a pre-packaged curriculum that is probably better than one can fine at the local public schools (which are fairly dismal). However, the group operating this state charter school are not the most organized group. The teachers are nice but terribly inspiring and my children are put off by the use of internet chats for activities. The technical aspects frequently do not work on some of the internet based extra curricular activities. The head administrator is not very helpful or responsiv when contacted about a problem with the teacher.
I recommend NVA to families considering homeschooling their children. It was by far, the best choice for our family!
Very impressed with NVA! They send you everything at no cost, and the curriculum is outstanding. Parents are the teachers, with a better understanding on how your child learns. Part of the curriculum is on-line, and through workbooks, text books, and journaling. You have teachers who can help if you get stuck, and a homeroom teacher.
This was the best thing to happen to my child. It is the top choice in virtual learning and the curriculum was outstanding.
