My experience with the Napa Valley Unified School district was honestly amazing. I loved it, I was always part of the Napa Valley Unified School district since I was in kindergarten. The curriculum is very helpful to me because it showed me how real-world jobs were going to expect me to be. I liked that the curriculum was project-based learning because it helped me gain socially skilled that I will use in the real world. One thing that could change about the Napa Valley Unified School District is that there should be just more counseling and administration for students to lean on when needed.

Napa Valley Unified School District, is an amazing school district. My parents have had me enrolled into this district since Preschool - High School. The teachers I've had have been understanding and thoughtful of their students. Although there can be some pros there can also be cons. The district should really put into consideration having gun drills as well as making sure every single student feels safe and comfortable.
The NVUSD is a really great district that provides great resources to the local schools inside the district and also provides great education among the schools. Im pretty sure every staff member at the district always has a positive mindset to give their students a healthy, outstanding education here in the Napa Valley. From kindergarten all the way to 12th grade, they provide everything the students needs to be successful.
