The teachers at this school were there to help you succeed. They always took extra time to go over anything you didn't understand as well as get to know the students and help them with any other problems that were not school related. I enjoyed going to Alta Vista, it was like a small community. Everyone was there only to help and encourage students to be the better version of themselves.

The diversity of people and ethnicities at this school was very diverse. Everyone treating each other equally, we were all friends.
The teachers were willing to put in extra tme for students. The counselors were always there to talk about school or home situations. If you needed a ride to or from school they were willing to help. If you needed a ride on the weekend to sports they were always there for you. They really cared and supported students success.
