Nestled at the foot of the East Napa hills, Alta Heights Magnet School creates a strong foundation of learning through discovery and exploration for its kindergarten through fifth grade students. 

Our Magnet School theme of Math, Art, Science and Technology offers our teaching teams the opportunity to develop and integrate unique programs that help extend our core curriculum with project-based units that enhance our student’s education and instill a passion for learning.

NVUSD parents,

Your student may qualify to receive healthy meals free or at a reduced price. Even if you think your family may not qualify, PLEASE COMPLETE THE APPLICATION - YOUR SCHOOL COULD WIN ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS!

How to do it:

1) You may still have the paper application that was sent home in your student's Back to School packet. If so, please complete it and turn it in to your school office. One form works for all your NVUSD students.

2) If you don't have the application, you can either ask for one at your school office or download and print one here. Again, complete it and turn it in to your school office.

3) If you'd like to complete the application online, click here

Call Food Service at (707) 253-3541 with any questions.
