Welcome To AISVN Elementary School!

Welcome to AISVN Elementary School and congratulations on making this important choice in your child’s education.

The Early Childhood Program, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, at the AISVN gently introduces our youngest children to the world of school. Here we focus on a language-rich, caring, and stimulating environment that promotes active participation and meaningful learning.

The Lower Elementary School, Grades PK-2, continues to introduce our young learners to their school world extending the dialogue to encourage language development, building off play and inquiry as a means for engaging students, and purposefully teaching students to navigate their way in the new world of school.

Upper Elementary School students, Grades 3-5, use their growing language abilities to work cooperatively on projects to practice, demonstrate, and solidify their abilities in Math, English Language Arts, Vietnamese Studies, Social Studies, Science, P.E. and Health, Music and Arts.

At every level, our aim at the Elementary School is to provide a positive, stimulating environment where students can thrive while being challenged to meet their fullest potential.

We recognize that parents are the first and most important teachers of our students. Please know that we value and respect your involvement with your children and their education. Learning takes place at home too! Engaging children with dialogue in the world around them is one of the most important ways parents can contribute to the vast knowledge store that is required of high achieving students. In this respect we encourage all our families to plan for frequent quality interactions with children that are free from electronic devices, center on their child's interests and are filled with dialogue, questions, and discovery.

At the Elementary School we follow the AERO standards using informal and formal assessments to evaluate and strategically plan for student success. English Language Development is carefully monitored by our specialists through WIDA ACCESS testing. Personal development is valued as highly as academic performance. The AISVN core values are incorporated into the curriculum in order to build character and confidence in each child. Students are recognized throughout the year for demonstrating these qualities in their performance as an AISVN student.

We are honored with the responsibility of educating your young children and feel privileged to have such a dedicated team of faculty and staff to work on this endeavor.

Best regards,

Joanne Valere
