Wow! This is my children's first year at GVCS and we could not be happier. The staff/student culture is fabulous, one of true mutual respect. The parents are very involved and kept informed every little step of the way. I feel like this is a family venture not just a another school.

My husband and I are so pleased with this school. We have a son who attends, and our daughter will soon be attending as well (starting kindergarten). The teachers and staff are incredible and the expeditionary learning is so incredibly valuable. I also appreciate the emphasis on building character which is pretty much completely left out of the curriculum at many schools. The dedication to the students being crew and not passengers in their educational journey gives the student a feeling of responsibility for their learning which is beneficial in so many ways. Lastly we love the school community. Incredibly dedicated parents who donate their time and talents to the school in so many ways. So glad that we have such great options in this community!

I don't think I have any complaints about this school. My daughter's first year at Grass Valley Charter has quite a journey and fun experience for her and for us as parents in her learning environment. I just hope I will be more involved as she continues to learn in the school's expeditionary learning curriculum.

This is an expeditionary learning school and the kids are engaged and great stewards of the earth. They are taught to be critical thinkers and compassion crew.They are not just passengers but CREW

This school is so great. I love it. Almost everything is hands on learning. I am actually a student here.A 7th grader as a matter of fact, and going to this school has brought me to love school even more.

We have been involved with GVCS for 7 years. We are thrilled that our children's academic success is not dictated by tedious, scripted curriculum. Their learning revolves around thought-provoking 'expeditions' or in-depth studies. Art and music, plus the core curriculum, are focused on the expedition. Parents are invited and encouraged to be an active part of their child's education through classroom help, fieldwork and other volunteer opportunities. Each child's needs are taken into account. This school has a wonderful staff who are committed to our children. I love that the classrooms buddy-up with other classrooms. The older kids get to read and mentor the younger students. A well-rounded sports program is available for the upper grades. It is truly a learning community. Come take a look for yourself.

This year will be my daughter's 4th year at Grass Valley Charter School. We moved away for a year, and she was so sad to have left Grass Valley Charter School that she kept asking, 'When are we going to move back to Grass Valley so I can go to my school?' My son just started, and he loves it as well. This school has so many opportunities to experince learning in such an interesting way. Kids are more likely to remember what they learn because of how they are taught-by experiencing things rather than spending most of thier time reading about them. I am very happy with the parent involvement and the encouragement and care that is given to each student.

We're with the Grass Valley Home Study (homeschool program. Our experience has been very good, I've homeschooled my gifted child there for two years now after the regular school system couldn't meet his needs. The school provides standard texts and some classes, as well as an allownce of $400 per semester for extra supplies or classes. I've been extremely pleased with the writing, journalism, and art courses. They also provide math once a week, english literature, and computer class. You can use the allowance to pay for clay sculpting and/or science class at the imaginarium. They are still a school system and there is some bureaucracy and accountability. Science support is weak, and they don't really understand the needs of a gifted child but they do listen. The people are warm and friendly. They need more science support for 7th and 8th grade. I'd give this school a B+.

I attended this school for four years. The curiculum (sp) is alright, and very hands on. The teachers are sweet and very patient. Friends are easy to make, and there are very few cliques. I enjoyed this school, very much.The design principles are excellent! I recomend it!
