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.

The Latest News & Information:


The 2016 Jog-a-Thon was a big success! Thank you to all the volunteers, donations, and sponsors. You are officially thanked in the video below!

Math Parent Survey

Please take a few moments of your time to complete a math adoption survey. It is in both English and in Spanish.

Gator Gatherings

The focus for the month of April will be empathy. The April Gator Gathering Tech Team gave up their recess nearly every day to create and edit a video about empathy. You can watch it here!

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.
