Starting as a junior, I felt very welcome from the first day I arrived. The staff always has smiles on their faces, saying good morning or hey in the hallways. The classes are set up to make you successful, not to fail you. they are doing a very great job preparing us for college. They have many opportunities for extra help when needed. It's not just friends, but one big family. The pep rally brings everyone in and shows how amazing and fun our students and staff are. I love it! It is way better than my old high school!

Honestly, I am so glad I had the opportunity to attend PVCHS. I had such a wonderful experience. The teachers love what they do and do their best to make sure that we learn and grow as students. Super thankful for the guidance counselors; they are very hard working people! The principal is a cool person too! The staff is super helpful and friendly. When it comes to enforcing rules, they do it well. During pep rallies and spirit week PVCHS goes all out (That's a good thing). Not only does the school have variety of clubs and sports, but it has academies and different programs to enhance your education! I became such a successful student. Thank you PVCHS!
Park Vista is a great environment that creates college ready students. It is a professional atmosphere that has a diverse community of students. From highly competitive athletic teams to nationally recognized honor societies, the school is very diverse. The teachers are willing to work with the students and are extremely intelligent in all subject fields. College level classes are another highlight. Both AP and AICE level classes get students familiarized with the rigorous coursework included in any college.
