NVVA was fine for the first part, then for the next my daughter got new teachers, and all they did was assign her a ton of busy work on various websites. It was incredibly repetitive and time-wasting. I called MANY times, asking to be on the independent pathway. My daughter is fairly advanced, and didn't need the repetive time-wasters. I was assured several times that I would be called right back within a day or two. One week later I was still trying to get a principal to answer the phone, and to return my calls. I finally had to give up and withdraw since I was unwilling to torture my daughter with the poor practices of NVVA.
I honestly thought this Academy was going to be worth it since it was in the comfort of my home but to be honest its not comfortable at all. I don't get the point of attending Live Classes for an hour and then do your homework/classwork for another hour. Its said that a normal day would be the same amount of hours as brick-and-mortar school but that is a lie. I'm spending more time doing work and trying to finish than actually learning. To be honest, I learned more in one week at my brick-and-mortal school than I ever did at this virtual academy for a week.
Definitely has gone down hill over the years. Both my wife an I work nites yet still must conform to public school hours with home school. Kind of defeats the purpose of home schooling. Mandatory class connects now? Where a lot of gibber gabber of the teachers with pointless rants and waste of time that could be use as productive learning. 2 teachers for one classes make alot of things confusing. Loss of funding is completely understandable as weve seen a steady decline in the homeschool as a whole. We have been with nvva for several years. Im starting to doubt the excellence the strive to portray vs public school this year.
I love this school and there is no better school.I've been at this school for a month that is enough to know how great this school is. The teachers there are nice, the staff are amazing i love my school. Plus im a kid i know what kid want their school to be like.
As a 7 year veteran Learning Coach with with 2 students, 4th and 8th, I am so thankful for the school choice option NVVA provides! The admin and teaching staff has showed our family tremendous support. Parents interested in virtual learning need to understand that the role of Learning Coach is as a Teacher working with and on a team with other Teachers. Your success is determined by your commitment.
I love this school. My son is about to start fifth grade, his third year, at NVVA. The field trips during the school year are organized by the teachers,and there is one every month. At least for fourth grade there was one every month. The school district here in Vegas has placed 50th for the past three years and I know for a fact that they do not have the resources to teach the students anything close to what k12 curriculum offers. I know the time the students have to put into the lessons can be overwhelming and challenging, but I would prefer that for my son over going to a school that can't provide a curriculum with high expectations. I have always encountered encouraging teachers and staff always willing to help in any way they can.
This school is not good. There was a bullying incident where the Staff and Faculty did nothing about it. THERE ARE A LOT OF DRUGS THERE!!If you do not want your child to become involved with the wrong crowd and hate bullying, I do not recommend sending your child there.
