The principal at this school is terrific! She helped my child get into a middle school when no one else would. She is strict but my children love her. The academic support from teachers has been great. I am happy with this school!
For the most part, the school is pretty good; unfortunately, there are alot of administration that have been there a looonnnggggg time, which means no new ideas can be brought to the table. Substitute teachers (if they can find them!) are a DISASTER! The 'regular' teachers want your kids to succeed. The adjunct 'staff' (after school stuff, music guy) is very lame, and they do ALOT of fundraising. SRVUSD is a good district, with good schools (but not great).
This is a great school. I am a parent of two student, one just starting and one just finishing. They love the school. They have had great teachers. Probably the most important thing is that the principal is the best - very attentive, easy to approach, listens, and gets things done.
Great elementary school! Awesome staff, terrific parents, nice kids and great offerings during and after school. Seems to be less intense in terms of social status (both with students and parents) than other 'high economic' schools in the area. Vista Grande is all-around a fantastic school!
