Welcome to Vista Alternative High School - Home of the Lobos!
It is truly my pleasure to welcome you all to the 2013-2014 school year! All staff members at Vista Alternative High School are committed and prepared to provide a safe and academically challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the 21st century.
Learning is the primary focus at Vista AHS. With an enrollment of 300 students annually, Vista AHS students are provided the benefits that naturally occur when attending a small school: low student-teacher ratios; block scheduling; differentiated instruction, and; post-secondary planning to support students in their next step following high school graduation. At Vista AHS we believe that creating an environment where students feel safe, respected, and valued is paramount if we are to maximize student achievement.
Additionally, the Strategies for Success program is located on Vista Alternative High School's south campus. Strategies for Success offers Yuma Union High School District's long-term suspended students the opportunity to continue their education while observing their disciplinary restrictions from the other schools within the district.
This school year is going to be exciting and inspiring for all of us on this journey! I pledge to partner with students, staff, parents, and community members to provide a memorable and valuable education for the students of Vista Alternative High School.
