    "I have mixed emotions about this school. It started out with a great vision but somewhere along the way that vision was lost. Over-crowded classes, east campus is a pig style, teachers look overwhelmed and the place is chaotic. I think if they had taken time to perfect their model instead of the rapid expansion and "lets get as many kids as we can cram into classes" model, it would have been a great school. We finally decided to pull our kids out after this school year."

    "Overall very pleased with this experience. Will continue with immersion as long as we can and GVA is a great place to obtain it. Very diverse, great teachers. Love this school"

    "Love this school! Like every school, especially charters, there are things that could be better but there is no place else in Aurora that students can learn French and Mandarin. My child has been here for several years and is able to communicate and learn in a language we don't speak at home. I love the diversity of her friends and classmates and Singapore math is great. Teachers care about their students like most teachers but she has been introduced to cultures from around the world. Getting my student to be both bilingual and literate in multiple languages are worth the things that are not perfect."

    "My daughter has been going to GVA since kindergarten French, on fall she will go to 3rd grade. She's been doing great with French. I'm very pleased with the reading and math program. The staff has always been super friendly and helpful. I'm looking forward to enroll my son in kindergarden Spanish immersion on fall. I recommend this school to everybody. About the principal Barbara Ridenour I think she is doing her job right. I asked her support in a personal situation my family is going through by writing a letter which she was able to do and she denied the help. That was hurtful because I have been supporting the school for a long time; but that doesn't make the school bad or whatsoever. That is the only complaint I have about GVA."

    "I was a previous student at this school and this school was the worst school i ever went to i was just in third grade and they were teaching me eighth grade math and to do math backwards and when ever my teachers handed me homework it was way above my learning level and i almost lost it i was running up and down the halls because the work was too much for me to understand i was only 9 when this was happening this also effected many other students in this dreaded school DON'T Ever Send Your Kids To This School! EVER! it will almost drive them to a mental breakdown like it almost did to me as a former student of this school i tell you to never send your kids to this school and if i could i would rate this school a 0 out of 10."
