My daughter enjoyed the Language Arts, Math and Band classes she was a part of as well a the students she was friends with and still is to this day. She also enjoyed her teachers and how they always helped her when she needed it. I was just a parent then, but as a middle school teacher now, I can definitely say that Vista Heights ranks far above the rest. I did my student teaching in this district and it is a gem above the rest. I am thankful, more than ever, that my daughter was able to get her educational foundation in the Moreno Valley Unified School District. She is in college now. I rate the other things at a 4 out of 5 because there is always room for improvement.

Vista Heights is probably the best school any student could ever attend to. This school has the highest test scores in the district which is phenomenal. I am currently in 8th grade and the vice president of the AVID program. For any student that comes to this school, I would recommend you to join the AVID program since it helps you go to college and the teachers are great. As a student, I am telling you to come to Vista.

My daughter is a 7th grader. She is in the AVID program and on the dance team. This school has really helped us keep her on the successful path that we've always planned for her.

My daughter is in 8th grade. She has grown as a well rounded student. Thanks to all wonderful teachers. Mr. Solomon, Mrs Rodriguez, Mrs Young, Mrs Lerma, Mrs Rouse and of course Mr. Hoffman are superb and excellent teachers. They are all should be recommmended . As a parent, Vista Heights is great school because of teachers who cares about their students. They all want them to succeed. Vista Heights is a great school and I will miss this place. I recommend this school to anyone who is looking for high academic excellence.

Well vista heights is a great school; the teachers actually care about your grades and have high expectations for you-especially for GATE and AVID students,i should know i am a GATE student. Most of the students are very friendly,and the campus isnt too overcrowded nor too empty, so the teachers have good control of all the students.Ive been at this school from the first day of 6th grade and i plan to stay there until the last day of 8th grade. There are very rarely any fights,drugs,or anything of that matter. if you are looking for one of the best schools in the moreno valley district with some of the best test scores and discipline in the district, send your child to vista heights middle school(:

I think vista heights has both a wonderful principal and staff. This is my son's 2nd year there. I think if more parents took time to get involved they too would have a more positive attitude towards the school and staff!

The Vista Heights Middle School Band program, lead by Mr. Solomon, has been a very positive influence in my student's overall growth/development during the last three years attendance at this school. I would like to see improvements in this school in the following areas: safety, discipline and inforcing the required dress code.

I just wanted to say that when I attended Vista Hieghts it was around 2000-2002 and it is one of my favorite schools. When I was there I had alot of fun and I enjoyed the teachers. Especially Mr. Smith,Mr. Gunnerson,and Mr. Rex. I felt that those 3 teachers really cared about their students, Not saying that the other teachers didn't! I feel that vista hieghts was a very good school on all subjects. I do thank the teachers that were alot of help.

My daughter has been attending Vista Heights since the sixth grade. She has maintained her grade average until she reached 8th grade. I receive weekly e-mails from her teachers showing her progress. She has a teacher who tutors my child weekly to help improve math skills. Overall, some of the teachers work really well with the parents as well as the students. At the beginning of sixth grade, Vista Heights has a trip to the Catalina Islands which my child had so much fun. That was a great start for my childs sixth grade year.

This schoool has been very helpful when it came to helping my child with his education. They (Principal and teachers) have valued what I had to say and listened attentively to my concerns about my child's educational needs and was able to place him in a proper setting that would be able to meet his needs.
