Alta Vista is a great school where my child has learned so much in such short time with Mrs halls 3rd grd class,,front office staff and principle are also great people to have at our school ,however myself and other parents will agree the school nurse has to go,she is very rude to us and our children,shes quite frankly TERRIBLE!!! PLEASE ALTA VISTA!! our children should not have to deal with this rude/bully of a nurse.other parents have been talking and if something dosnt happen soon ,we agree we would all go to the district with this matter,our children love their teachers and this school,but the nurse has got to go!!!!

I attended Alta Vista in the early 90's and now my son is attending school here. He loves his teacher Ms. Dermyer. I love the rest of the kindergarten staff as well. I would have been happy with any of the K teachers. Mrs Parker has been there as long as I was there and is still. Mrs Aronowitz the Principal was my Junior highschool VP. She is stern, but loves her kids. I feel completely comfortable with my son's safety and academic career starting here at Alta Vista. I can't wait to see what the next 6 years hold in store.

The office staff are very rude! They lack professionalism in their behavior and how they dress. The teachers are great! Too bad people do not feel welcome when they walk through the front office.

My daughter loves this school! Mrs. Hall is the most amazing 3rd grade teacher! She makes all the learning a lot of fun for the kids and makes them want to learn the material. I am so thankful for her and all that she has done. They go above and beyond for the families in the community! They made my kids Christmas! I love them and thank God for them all.

My child loves it here and I'm amazed by how much she has learned. The school offers free meals and keep the children very safe.

Alta Vista has shown great effort in improving their AIMS scores and is lead by a team of hardworking faculty that really care about the education of the kids. They go above and beyond to make it possible for each parent to have the opportunity to give imput into decisions that effect our kids.
