Welcome to Vista Alternative High School - Home of the Lobos!
It is truly my pleasure to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year! Every member of the Vista team is committed and prepared to providing a safe and academically challenging environment that empowers students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and inspired learners equipped to thrive in the 21st century.
Learning is the primary focus at Vista AHS. We provide Vista students the unique benefits that naturally occur when attending a small school: low student-teacher ratios, block scheduling, differentiated instruction, and individualized college and career planning to support students in their next step following high school graduation. At Vista, we believe that creating an environment where students feel safe, respected, and valued is paramount if we are to maximize student achievement. We embrace and celebrate the Ready Now Yuma philosophy of every student in the YUHSD being challenged, supported, and prepared!
In addition to our main campus, we also support the Strategies for Success program located on the Vista South campus. Strategies for Success offers YUHSD long-term suspended students the opportunity to continue their education while observing the disciplinary restrictions from their home schools. At SFS, our focus is on character, remediation, and the successful transition of students back to the respective home campuses.
I have no doubt this school year will be one of growth and inspiration for all! I pledge to partner with students, staff, parents, and community members to provide a memorable and valuable education for every student attending Vista Alternative High School.
