Alta Vista High School Reviews
My experience in Alta Vista was overall good. I like how my counselor and principal worried about our grades and how we should be ready for after high school. In my opinion, I wouldn't change anything from Alta Vista.
I am a senior at Alta Vista, graduating in 2 to 3 months. I have attended Alta Vista for the last two years, and I can simply say it is an amazing school. Not only has it provided me with the education needed but the support from the staff in difficult times. I've gotten so close to the administration & the teachers, graduating & leaving will be hard. All the teachers are there because they want to be there and they truly care about every single students. Alta Vista makes me feel safe, the officers on duty and the administration make sure of that. I have stayed at school late, or arrived super early and it has become like a second home to me. They encourage all the students to have perfect attendance and reward them with a free trip to Knott's Berry Farm. Also if they pass all the AIMS at Alta Vista sophomore year they are rewarded a FREE trip to Disneyland senior year.
Alta Vista High School is an excellent school. The teachers have tutoring 3 times a week and sometime even all week when not busy. They have one-on-one communication and interactions with students. The staff at Alta Vista is always available when needed and are on top of everything. They have a PSEI committee which focuses on helping graduating students make a plan for after graduation. Alta Vista helps with credit recovery when failing classes at other schools. It also helps students earn credits faster and early graduation. Alta Vista is a great learning environment it has helped me plan for my future career.
What I really loved where the teachers at this school. They are some really really good teachers here that care about their students and actually teach the subject we are learning really well it sticks to you forever and what I didn't like was the excessive amount of rules like tardiness and dress code.
As such a small school, Alta Vista is able to offer a tight-knit community that involves all of its students with truly "no child left behind". Due to its size, though, it often faces the issues of limited classes offered and sports.
Everyday I walk into campus I truly feel welcomed and that is a feeling I just did not get when visiting other schools. Alta Vista cares about every student and ensures they receive the help and care they need.
Although it is a small school with limited opportunities, the teachers truly care about teaching and the students. The quality of education is always a priority for the staff and teachers at Alta Vista.
They have some clubs but none which I'm a part of.
Honestly it has been one of the greatest atmospheres I've been in education related like I said previously everyone part of the staff is there to greet you and attend all of your need and always exceed your expectations!
The teachers at Alta Vista school genuinely care about our well-being, always cheerful and every morning they greet you with an almost cheesy smile from ear to ear. They're always there when you need them and strive for your education. Teachers here are always trying to keep you on track to a bright future, always offer help and tutoring if they see you truly need it. They respect all ideas and opinions and always treat you with the greatest respect. Alta Vista is an overall well rounded school.
They teach you about every hazard thing that you may come across
They teach you things you will use outside of school
This school has many different clubs for every type of person! What makes this school different is that it's not only a school but we all are friends and treat each other with great respect
Whenever I needed help they were there and outside of school projects they were just an email away!
The school always has a police officer on hand, they are gated and have both a bomb and lock down procedure in place along with a fire drill. The doors lock and students are required to wear an ID stating their identification. The school, I feel. is very safe and healthy.
Though the school has a limited amount of extracurricular activities, the ones that I have personally participated in were great! The school offers dance/cheer, National Honors Society, Creative Writing, and Student Council as extra curricular activities. I believe the most participation by students goes to Student Council. They are in charge of Pep Assemblies, Spirit Week, and decorating the school as well as garnering funds for activities like prom. National Honors Society is more exclusive, and pay more attention tov the happenings in the community. We have met up for park clean-ups, where we clean a local park we have "adopted" and volunteer, raise money for charities and toy drives, and various activities that give back in some way.
This school has become one of the best experiences of my life academically and socially. I have been involved in Creative Writing, National Honors Society, and Student Council and met amazing people I won't forget. The small size ensures that everyone knows each other to some degree, and the classes are small, so focusing and forming a safe environment are easy to accomplish. The school makes tutoring mandatory for students with a grade below a C. This school has a great system and was just an excellent place to go if you were serious about your school life.
Each and every teacher are kind, courteous, and make sure the students get their work done. They are approachable and add humor in their lessons. They give challenging work and make sure we are safe in class.
Teachers are great, stress is kept to the minimum, and teacher really show interest in your progress.
At Alta Vista every teacher gives their best
