Welcome to Vista High School


Vista High School is an independent study middle/high school that offers a multicultural education in grades 7-12. Vista High School is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood that offers a safe environment where students can receive personalized instruction. We provide an educational setting tailored to meet the individual needs of students.
Students are counseled and aided in their pursuit of educational and vocational goals beyond high school. Students who graduate from Vista earn a traditional high school diploma and develop a clear vision of what they need to do to claim their goals for their future.
Independent study is not for all students; independent study requires basic academic skills and a level of commitment, motivation, organizational skills, and self-direction.

We are so proud of you!
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we offer Homework Help from 12-1pm in VH7.  Teachers give up their personal time and students attend to support each other.  In this photo, 10th grade student Carsyn Riddell, tutors 9th grade student Marcus Banda in mathematics.  At Vista High School, we support each other with an all hands on deck attitude!  We offer individualized programs, a caring atmosphere, and success at your pace.  This is why VHS, is the BEST!
Homework Help
We provide one on one support and small classes to balance our academics at Vista High School. We believe in our work and we provide our students with the support they need to be successful.  Our individualized approach to learning allows our students to be the leaders of their academic success.
Just Us being Us
At Vista High School, our experienced staff goes the extra mile to provide an individualized program for our students.  We offer small classes in conjunction with one to one supervision.  Although our students choose to approach schooling independently, it does not mean they are alone because at VHS, we consider our students, our team.
