Silicon Valley Flex Academy opened in 2011 to provide students in middle and high school with an alternative to public schools. Along with core subjects the school offers accelerated credit learning, advanced placement courses, direct instruction, honors track, individually guided instruction, project-based, standards-based, and virtual school. With all these options, students can easily learn in an environment that fits their needs. Foreign languages available are Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish
Along with core subjects, the school provides students with extra curricular activities, student clubs and sports. The sports are offered via a partnership with local gym clubs. Extra curricular activities are drawing, photography, creative writing, and computer animation. Student clubs available are anime, business, community service, math, and yearbook. Students really enjoy the various clubs and activities including the fieldwork that enhances the learning environment.
Parents expressed their gratitude for the teachers, administration and all staff at the school. Most stated that the school offers a wonderful balance between work and play and that their strict rules on bullying are wonderful. Students stated they like the school, the other students that attend the school and especially like the way their teachers are helpful when needed.
The Academic Performance Index was not available at the time of this writing. The statewide goal is 800.
The California Standards Tests is used to learn if students are mastering core subjects. The various tests are given to 2nd through 11th grades in English, grades 2nd through 7th are given tests in math, and science tests are administered to students in grades 5th, 8th, and 10th, while history tests are given to students in 8th and 11th grades.
The percentage of students passing the exams was not available at this time
It is a bit difficult to see if the school is performing at state standards since the exam scores are not available. Parents and students are happy with the school, but it would be in your best interest to learn more about the results of the exams before making your final decision.
