  • This school is amazing. Everything I ever dreamed of. I thought I was done for in school, and Vista Nueva gave me another chance. Now I can graduate on time. I love it here. We are a family. I am comfortable and happy here. I know i made the right choice to come to this school. I would let everyone know how I feel about it here. I say this school is perfect for anyone. We are not a school of bad kids but a school of studints that can succeed. Thank you so much Vista I now know I can graduate in 2011!

  • I attended Vista Nueva my senior year, and I was able to bring my new born baby boy to school with me. It was a huge relief as a new mother to have my child in the same building with me while I finished my education. The teachers and staff were very understanding and caring. Also, my grades at Vista were the best I had throughtout my high schol years. The smaller classes and determined teacher helped me graduate with a 4.0 GPA. Thanks Vista!
