LaVilla School of the Arts Reviews
Rating 4.2 out of 5 10 reviews
The time i spent at this school were the worst 2 years ever covid ruined it and it never went back to how it was before. The teachers are very rude and treat kids terribly. The kids are very judgmental and are bullies. I would never recommend this school to anyone. Feels like prison
My daughter only got to complete one year here before we had to move. We are heartbroken she cannot continue. The staff is amazing and so inspiring in helping the kids pursue their chosen passions. They teach the kids how to both give and accept appropriate criticism to help their peers grow. We were a part of the drama department and there’s not enough space to say how much of an impact they made on us. They truly care about their students and seem to take joy in developing their talents. As with any school, kids are going to get out what they put in.
As fresh alumni from Lavilla, with Vocal as my study, Lavilla was a good experience. Chorus is one of the best arts areas provided and Mrs. King and Mr. Pendry take pride in there work. My 6th-grade year they created a student-written and composed opera which had never been done before. The parents are very involved in this program and they help a lot with concerts and everything else that needs to be done. Academics wise, some of the teachers are average, but there is a sprinkle in each grade level that really cares and will do everything in their power to help you succeed.
This school is amazing. The academic classes are medium level of hardness,and the arts area classes are best. Though it can be tough to balance arts and academics, this school has taught me extremely well. The people there are super nice and diverse. The teachers have passion and are wonderful.
LaVilla is one of THE best middle performing arts school. Not only that, their academics are excellent. The teachers are absolutely wonderful. Most, if not all of them have been there for years because they love their school and students. My daughters have learned so much in their arts area until they will be ahead in college should they choose to pursue their arts areas in dance and vocal. I can’t say enough about the academics. They are rated an A school since the doors opened in the district. My kids are challenged and more prepared academically.
LaVilla is an amazing school and I am so glad I went there. The academic teachers are amazing and really want you to succeed as well as the art teachers. Everyone who works there prepared me to get into Douglas Anderson.
I love the teachers and the family-like atmosphere.
The diversity at this school is amazing.
Since its a middle school the audition process isn't worth much but still audition for a better chance in the lottery.
