  • This small high school in Boulder Valley
    Colorado has exceptional teachers in the
    field of education. I say that because
    they are informative, well-educated, and
    have open minds to teach our children, how to survive in this complicated world, how to interact and speak up, to be an integrated citizen of this world and their communities. They teach our children what is important to emphasize
    to prioritize, to grow mature and
    responsible. I am a parent who loved the way this school was administrated, however, I do believe that all high schools while allowing their children to grow and blend within the high school community
    individually without their parents hovering over them, should allow more parental interaction and support, opinions and feedback so that their
    children and the school shall reap the enrichment that a three pronged
    education shall give.
    Now that so many intense situation have engulfed the school, I admit a caution to unknown visitors to judge a campus by the appearance or by the news. I see
    this staff as giving as much as they can to educate a community of young people about facing the ups and downs that we
    all have to face. whether it be the educational pitfalls, or the misinformation because of this countries
    unwillingness to put our money where it counts the most. educating the future of America...our children. New Vista sees past the funding, past the boundaries and soars in advocating and supporting it's families to move forward with what they have. I have two children graduating from
    New Vista in the near future. I encourage other parents to give of their opinions good or bad, so that we may learn from our mistakes and build
    a strong community that reaps from our success. I did not even know about this site and encourage whoever listed our school to send the site to every parent with a listed email and students
    so that the communication will start happening. I will post another critique later, as I just wanted to get this site
