I'm a senior in Vista Del Lago and have been a student here for the entire four years. It was a competitive, fast-paced school for me, built with high academic success and many options for a challenging course. I found that the best things are my school were the teachers, the block schedule (providing for a true ability to obtain lots of credits and take many honors and AP courses), and our clubs. I've been president of two clubs here, SNAP Medical (founder) and Drama club and we have made a great improvement over utilizing innovation and ideas from our students. Folsom High seemed to be the supplement to the few things that Vista was lacking in. Folsom High is known for its performing arts in choir and theater and an extremely successful football team. If you are a parent making the choice, I'd base it off of what your student is most passionate about. If they love sports and arts I would recommend Folsom High, if they wish for strong academic success and rigor on a Bully-Free zone, then Vista is the place for them!

Within one month of attending this school my freshman was told that Vista High School is for rich successful kids and Folsom high is for poor, trashy kids. I'm embarrassed that my town has this attitude in the first place (it does) but more so that it's so impressed upon our youth. Besides the social climate being such, my freshman has straight As for the first time ever and the school so far seems lovely, well organized and safe.

I LOVE VISTA! I've never "loved" school until now! I'm involved in so many programs and have never been happier! The only thing is the dress code while I applaud the modesty policy is extremely sexist! for the most part... Teachers and staff are fantastic

The school is excellent when it comes to acaemics, however, the students and teachres here are not very friendly as a whole. They think because they are wealthy and high achieving, they are better than everyone else....

Vista del Lago High School has an excellent principal, classes, and coaches. Students can be prepared to qualify for any university, including elite universities. The athletics are great. The students receive challenges and encouragement. Wonderful school!

My son is a freshman at Vista this year and is having such a great year. This school is night and day from Folsom Middle (I'll save that for my review on them). My son is very smart but not very motivated. Vista has brought a complete change in him. He excelled in regular classes and was quickly promoted to honors and is still excelling with the challenge. The block schedule offers so much more opportunity to learn things of interest (great for artists, btw) and moving more quickly through subjects that are less interesting helps keep him motivated to push through and do his best.

This school is great, I have a daughter that is been ranked among top 3 in her class. She loves the school, academics, teachers, campus, etc. I like the level of parent involvement. The issue is that socially she is absolutely miserable.I have never seen her this unhappy. What happens with the teens here? Are they really too cool to have fun? She is transferring to FSH next year. This is sad because the school is great , the principal's team, teachers, administrative personnel and resources in time of budget cuts are simply awesome.

Great school. An advantage- its so new..everyone is open to new ideas. Our first senior class is paving the way for new traditions and fun things to come. As mentioned by others, the block schedule is amazing, and helpful for people to get ahead, as well as help others catch up. The only drawback of this school is that the people are horribly vain and everyone is 'too cool' for each other. My life has been miserable socially. I think due to the small size of the student body, it is more difficult to find a good group of friends. I'm looking forward to tranferring to FHS next year.

What an awesome school. The block system has worked extremely well for our son, who was a good student before, and now he is a straight A student. He has really enjoyed the challenge of all his classes and he continues to excel in every subject. We love the school!

This school is very disciplined when it comes to academic studies. The students are extremely challenged. Some difficulties can come in the acceleration of subjects and the work load can be large. Still, if your student is determined to excel, this is the right school for him/her. It's a great school overall!

What a great school year! I have a daughter that attended the inaugural year at Vista, and I have nothing but great things to say. She participated in the athletic program, was challenged yet excelled in her academics, and met a great group of friends. Vista's block schedule is a success in my eyes! As this school grows in population, so will it grow in its greatness.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
