Vista West Continuation High School Reviews

My overall experience at Vista West was amazing. I was able to catch up on all my credits that I had fell behind on and ultimately graduate early because I was so far ahead. The teachers here made the school feel like another home. They involved themselves into the students lives. Not only did they care about your grades they also cared about their students. I feel like Vista West shouldn't be a continuation school because their teachers are so caring and knowledgeable unlike some teachers in regular high school. If I could go back in time I would do it all over again.
