I made the wrong decision to enroll my child there. THought it was the ideal school. WRONG! It is very elitist and regimented. My child's teacher obviously was prejudiced towards same sex couples and single parents. His former NVLA teacher also humiliated children for being kids. My child is now ...  Read more

NVLA's motto is 'Two Languages, One Heart'. That sums it up. The teachers, parents, students and the entire NVLA staff have heart. In addition, the curriculum is challenging, the music department is amazing and the free after-school activities are fun!

I have a third grader and a Kindergartner at NVLA and am convinced that I made the right choice for my children. NVLA doesn't just cover the regular curriculum but does it in two languages (Spanish/English). Don't let the low test scores scare you, my third grader reads on a sixth grade level in both ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
