I go to this school and i think that the staff is wonerfull. I also think that it is a very safe invirement. During summer brake all i have wanted to do is go back to school, and not just because of friends but because i love NVI so much and i cant wait till next year starts.

We changed schools from Harrison Prep in Lakewood. WA A college prepatory school that was not very good or could be considered a 'work in progress.' My son is very behind in his studies. He is a 6th grader and has Mr. Hansen. Our experience has been excellent. The staff is professional, caring and efficent. My son loves school now and really is motivated. NVI also has great after school activities. I would strongly recommend this school to parents looking for a challenging but safe environment.

This school isn't as great as you all think. I'm a student there, and I think the schedule is very confusing. But, yes, the teachers are OK, but not perfect. Some teachers are pretty bad, while some teachers are actually quite fair to students.

The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
