Napa Valley Unified School District Reviews

I have been a student apart of the NVUSD since kindergarten and throughout my entire experience, I have never have felt such acceptance and care. Each teacher is selected with the student's best interest in mind and that shows in all schools. They have countless opportunities to become involved in your school and with your community through clubs, activities, sports, and arts. While all of these things are important to NVUSD, they know that education is most vital and they make sure to put that before anything else.

Napa Valley School District schools have very good facilities, however the teachers get paid a lot but don't put in the care in how they teach. Many of the teachers get away with things that they shouldn't. I really hope to see an increase of college attendance after high school and the support for students in financial need. More educational support for the hispanic community is essential for integration and involvement within Napa County. The curriculums within the schools are really good and they teach many Ag related classes, which is a good fit for the county as a whole. My school benefitted extremely from FFA and other similar programs.
I think we need to improve our school culture and focus on providing more mental health resources. I think overall our schools and the school district is good. I wish they focused on social and emotional learning and that there was a late start. I think our sports are good, and I wish more students were involved in clubs and school spirit. The AP classes are good, but I haven't felt as prepared for the exams. I think the teachers are good and care about their students. I wish our school taught us life skills to help us prepare for college.
