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.
