As a student who has been with Alta Vista, now called Guadalupe Centers, since 6th grade, I have loved my time working with the staff and students. I have learned so much being here. As my final year here, I can truly say that in this school, although it may not be perfect, it is filled with a home-like feeling. Guadalupe Centers High School is like a second home to me. It is a place where I can trust the staff because they have demonstrated their interest in the future of their students. The teachers here do not only teach lectures to students, but they also build connections. This teachers are willing to offer life advice and advice on college readiness.

Though All four years of Alta Vista (AV) high school, It has overall been a really great experience. I have had many different opportunities that other high schools don't have such as Senior seminar as a class. The community is majority hispanic but no matter what they bring anyone in as family. Senior year of AV they had changed a lot within the school also hired many new teachers witch had caused the students to adapt differently to the new teacher community. AV looks for teachers that truly cares about their students and want to help prepare them for the future.
Alta Vista is a very good school where the teachers and other staff truly care about their students. It is different from the 'typical' high school experience. They not only want to make their students college ready, but also life ready. They make sure to tell you and inform you on other choices if you feel like college isn't for you. They make sure that you are on track by making you stay for help when you need it. My favorite part is that the school offers an early college program where you can take college class on an actual campus while still in high school.
