Nestor Language Academy Charter opened in 1994 for students in grades Kindergarten through eighth. The focus is on individualized academic instruction so that each child can move at his or her own pace to achieve positive results. The goal is to combine student, parent and credentialed teacher together to develop a personalized educational plan that focuses on the student’s learning style, interests and abilities.
The major complaint of parents and students is the lack of extra curricular activities, student clubs, and sports. Students stated they would like the opportunity to join such things as choir, computer arts, and sports like soccer or volleyball.

This is also done with a 2-way immersion program combining both Spanish and English.
The Academic Performance Index showed an academic increase from 820 to 855. This is what the parents want to see especially since the statewide goal is 800.
