I''ve worked at a few high schools, and find Vista to be well above the norm. The sudents have more respect for diversity, there is an appreciation for excelling at whatever your do, the staff and students are much closer than at other schools that I''ve worked at, and over all, there is a sense of caring that is unique. On top of all this, the academics are fantastic- there are some real progressive super stars on the staff!

My daughter's first year at this school, she hates it. Difficult to make friends and block scheduling is not a good learning environment that works for her. Predominantly affluent and filled with materialistic headcases. Will be moving her to a more diverse school like CBS.
