Middle school is an important transition period for the early adolescent. The skills and values acquired by the student during this time may significantly influence future education experiences. The Vista Verde Middle School, consisting of grade levels 6 through 8, accentuates academics. Together, the Middle School staff and students foster a feeling of " family" in which the staff takes time to get to know the students.


The Vista Verde Middle School program consists of the following:

  • A strong academic focus
  • High standards and expectations
  • Equal opportunities for learning
  • Regular student assessment
  • A safe and orderly environment
  • A coordinated curriculum
  • Integrated instruction
  • Respect and rapport among students and staff
  • Positive, cooperative relationships among staff, school and community
  • Effective school/home communication
  • Instructional leadership
