Vista Academy of Visual and Performing Arts Reviews

By a Parent on

A few years ago VAVPA was a really good arts magnet school, but this year they are extremely unorganized, and seem to have lost motivation in the arts, the students, parents and teachers.

By , a Parent on

The school struggles with test scores due to lack of funding for the tutoring program to assist the high percentage of children whose parents do not speak english.  However, my two daughters have thrived since beginning attendance at VAVPA and love the interactive experience of learning basic math, language arts and science concepts through the arts.
