School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2020–2021)
The Opportunity Program is designed as an intervention for 9th and 10th grade students who are at-risk of academic failure due to behavioral issues and/or significant credit deficiency.. It is comprised of two classrooms, each with a teacher and an instructional aide. It focuses on skills that will help students succeed on the traditional campuses. District curriculum and assessments are used. A concerted effort is made to maintain a small class size in order to address specific learning and behavioral issues. As part of our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Program, students are recognized daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly for displaying the schoolwide positive behavioral expectations of Doing the Right Thing, Owning Their Actions, Giving Respect, and Showing Pride.
The mission of Vista School is to provide an alternative educational format to students in order to achieve their academic goals and obtain a high school diploma. Vista School gives each student the opportunity to succeed, to recognize and cultivate their unique talents and abilities, and to develop the skills needed for success in school and life. Equity is ensured through individualized support. Mastery is evident through sustained application of skills, and a focus on results is achieved through an intentional process driven by outcomes. The school prepares every student to live their purpose.
Students are supported by the principal, a full time Dean of Students in charge of discipline and attendance, two full-time counselors, a part-time school liaison, a liaison representing our foster and homeless students, and part-time licensed mental health counselors.
Students are assigned to non-credit bearing math and English intervention classes based on diagnostic and benchmark assessments to support their mastery of the standards and credit completion.
Title I funds are used to purchase high-interest novels and works of non-fiction, and other supplemental curriculum, resources, and learning opportunities.
