Personally... I believe my 7th grader was more than adequately challenged this year, as well as last year. She maintains a 3.8 gpa and is highly motivated by her teachers. The teachers are highly qualified, with fresh and current teaching methods that engage the students to be not just academically prepared, but socially aware and able to intelligently communicate their thoughts and ideas. They are encouraged to dream big and reach for the impossible. They are being equipped with the academic and social tools they will need to make it happen. This new middle school just finished their second year on the Westside.... as the school grows and the students, both current and incoming, adjust to the rigorous academics and high standards.... it will soon become a highly coveted educational institution of choice....drawing families from all across the Westside. Thank you ICEF Vista MS Academy!!!
