This is a chance for incoming students and parents -- as well as current 4th and 5th graders, and their families -- to learn and ask questions about IVA's curriculum and mission, and to learn about its culture of intellectual growth, optimism and hope. IVA students will be on hand to answer questions about what they're learning this year and what student life is like at this new charter middle school in Long Beach.

Middle School CHOICE Family Information Nights - 4 Nights to Learn More

IVA hosts periodic information nights throughout the school year so that prospective families and interested educators may learn about IVA's model of education. These nights provide time for families to learn more about IVA and consider what do you want for middle school education for your child. We will have current students and teachers at the event to share their experiences and give you a window into their lives at IVA. It can be helpful to learn more, ask your own questions, and hear the questions other are asking so that you may better imagine who your child can become in an environment devoted to thinking and learning.
