Fantastic principal. Really caring and involved. Great atmosphere, my child is very happy here and is getting a good education.
We have been with Vista Verde School for the past ten years with a daughter who recently graduated from 8th grade, and is now in high school, and a son who's in 7th grade. With the small school environment (about 80-90 students per grade level) and a top-notch, dedicated teaching staff, VV is among the best schools in Orange County -- public or private!
We love the school! We are a little concerned/aprehensive about the school relocating in fall 2006. However, the new campus will be fabulous, just not as close to home anymore.
THe kidergarden programm in this school is very good. Teacher is very warm and patient to the young kids. Ther have art, music and PE class activity supported by the PTA. Teacher to student ratio is good. Parent volunteers is very supporting and actively involved in the class and school activity. A very good shool to choose.
Great school. The staff is very qualified and attentive and it is a safe and loving environment for the kids.
The small student population may not appeal to everyone, nor the close environment, but for those who like individual teacher attention this is a great middle school. Also, vista verde students are just as prepared for high school as other students.
Excellent academic program, excellent teachers, excellent principal. Parents very involved.
We have a 2nd grader and 2 kindergarteners and are very involved in the school. We cannot say enough good things about it. Everything about VV has exceeded our expectations - the teachers, the staff, the feeling of 'family', the program offerings, the diversity and, especially, the other parents. It is a wonderful place for us to work as a partnership to help our children learn and grow.
I have been with Vista Verde for over 7 years, starting with my 7th grader who started in Kindergarten. Because of VV's K-8 program & small school environment, the students are more confident and able to successfully transition to H.S. than students who graduate from a traditional 7-8 M.S. At VV, the teachers take time to get to know the students & their needs. VV's test scores are above average (in some cases, the highest in Irvine). Because parents choose to send their children to VV (it's not a neighborhood school, it's open to everyone in Irvine), parent involvement is very high. VV's teachers work very hard and most have their Masters degree. I cannot say enough about VV and its exceptional K-8 program, teachers and staff!
