Home of the Alta Gators!

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.

Gator Gatherings

The next Gator Gathering is June 1st. The fourth graders in Mrs. Magallano's morning class studied anti-bullying. They have created an amazing News Report complete with commercials, cartoons, interviews, and awareness videos to teach others about the harmful effects of bullying and ways to prevent it. The 11 minute video will debut at the June 1st Gator Gathering. It will then be posted here on our website, on Facebook, and on Youtube.
