    "We love NVLA. Our daughter is learning in 2 languages. Despite budget cuts, NVLA has been able to keep class sizes down, which is so important. The school's diversity reflects the larger Napa community which so many charters and neighborhood schools do not. Parents, even those without English language help out. The students learn violin and gardening in addition to the regular subjects. The school also offers after school enrichment classes at no charge."

    "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 thriving at our neighborhood school where his teacher embraces tolerance for all and creativity. Also, did not like the fact that there are very few African American families at NVLA. Heard that an immersion program in Vallejo will open in 2011. That looks more promising than the elitist program at NVLA. The lottery needs to be investigated. Rich families somehow get their kids jumped ahead of the waiting list, and they are treated better by the staff. Sad that the public has to fund a public charter school that carters to families who can afford private schools."

    "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!"

    "The NVLA program is unique opportunity for your child. Your child will become proficient in two languages within the context of state-standards in reading, math and science. The Guided Language Aquisition Development model insures that your child learns through seven different intelligences--all teachers receive this training. NVLA's immersion model was based on the 90-10 developed by Canadian schools in order for students to become bilingual and biliterate in two languages (French & English). My children will have easy road to college as well--as you know, most colleges require two years of a foreign language. In fact, they should be able to CLEP them before entering. I also know that your children will have more opportunities in a number of areas: Friends and understanding cultural differences, jobs, in Napa Valley many jobs require billigual applicants, travel, your experiences will be enriched dramatically, global & cultural persectives."
