    "My daughter is in the 1st grade mandarin program and loves it, she is speaking her immersion language in the advanced category already.I went to 8 schools before she started kindergarten but was afraid she would get bored because she knew kindergarten curriculum at age 3. I am really glad I found this school because now she can learn it all in a new language. That being said this school may not be a good fit if a child is behind in English already and you can not work with them at home since the first year is 100% immersion and is I think 80% for 1st and 2nd. Overall I have had a great experience with the staff and school as a whole, they allow you to be as involved as you want and the one time my daughter did have an issue it got handled the very same day. I can't complain."

    "My daughter is in Sr Aguayo's Spanish kindergarten class! That man is a god send! Yes my kinder comes home with A TON of homework but just how much she has grown throughout this has truly been amazing! Test scores are low with the school but to be fair they all spend there day learning there immersion language yet Colorado makes us test in English. Sinta who works the desk also very relatable as well as Maria my daughter is always excited to walk in to school and see them both. Yes it's a big school but my child is not just a number to them everybody has truly taken the time to get to know her and what works best for her to learn. I love that GVA is our school and I'm truly excited to see how my child grows in her immersion language because of GVA!"

    "Not a very good school. The teachers are fine and some care, but the administration only cares about themselves. They don't treat the staff well, the quality of education is poor and they continuously change teachers because it is CHEAPER for them to do so."

    "Terrible school! Extremely high turnover in administration, teachers and students. Test scores are low, academics is low too. The board does not manage the school instead they allow one person to dictate (The Executive Principal). The parking situation is a nightmare! There is no playground even though parents have raised money in the past for one. Executive Principal is not there for the best interest of children, they are only numbers for her. The immersion language concept is good, however there is no fidelity. Steer Clear for your own sanity!"

    "This school is just horrendous. My son has been at this school 2 years and I hate taking him everyday. The Executive Principal is a JOKE and is NEVER available to speak to parents, the onsite Principal is passive aggressive and never seems as if she truly wants to interact with parents. My sons teachers in the Mandarin program have been OK except this year. The teacher refuses to grade the students based on their work, and when you ask questions about your child she is always defensive and disturbingly aggressive. The parking situation is a nightmare and the teachers that aid in traffic sit around like thugs urging parents to move their cars even when your child is not buckled up! Several students have been hit in the loading and unloading zone! Simply put, the apathy from the executive staff, defensive teachers that are "BUSY" when you need to speak about your child's progress, the horrendous building and lack of playground facilities lends this school to a zero star rating in my opinion. Don't send your children here, it would be a mistake and the kids are numbers that are pushed through. If you advocate for your child you will be met with defensiveness! Steer Clear! THE WORST!"
