Napa Valley Unified School District Reviews

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 would rate Napa Valley Unified School District with 4 stars. The atmosphere is very safe and academic resources are average.
In my opinion, as a senior from American Canyon, the teachers and administration could use a lot of work. Academics within this district are sufficient at best. There are a handful amount of teachers with questionable teaching strategies. However, most teachers are entertaining and examples of what help make NVUSD a reputable district. This district is also working on programs to improve the college readiness of students but, for now, I believe the preparations are poor. Improving teaching strategies and programs would increase the quality of the district.
The best features of NVUSD are the diversity in the student bodies and the wide-range of clubs and activities that are available. The sheer number of clubs and people within the district are amazing.
Ultimately, I believe the quality of NVUSD has allowed me to have memorable experiences in my high school.
This school district would not be what it is today without the people staffing it, especially those at Napa High School. The faculty at Napa high will always greet you with a smile and ask how your day is going, which may seem simple but has made me feel better on a rough day. I've heard from friends at other High Schools in the Napa Valley Unified School District that their faculty is also very genuine and nice, making both of our respective school environments feel safe and comfortable. I am incredibly grateful to have grown up in an area with such a great educational community that is the NVUSD.
