ABOUT VISTA SCHOOL:

Vista is a public charter school that operates under the direction of the Utah State Board of Education, the Utah State Charter School Board, and the school’s local Board of Directors.

Vista seeks to enhance academic achievement by providing specialized instruction in Math, Science, Technology, and History by highly qualified teachers beginning in 1st grade. This means students learn from the earliest grades from a teacher who is an expert in his or her individual field and who understands how to help the students best learn a specific topic.

Vista broadens students’ academic experiences by providing them with opportunities to explore elective coursework in visual and performing arts and technology. Our students look forward to coming to school because offerings match their interests, which benefit all aspects of their academic experience including academic achievement and attitude.

After school programs at Vista give students the opportunity to pursue their passion in athletics, technology, dance, strings, and theater at a fraction of the typical cost of private instruction. Students may participate in as many after school programs as they choose.

Vista’s teachers and administration are highly qualified and are required to maintain their teaching certifications. They are leaders in their areas of expertise and student achievement is a reflection of their dedication to their profession. Because Vista is not part of a traditional school district, teachers are free to pursue instruction methods that yield the best results, instead of a predetermined curriculum and teaching delivery method.
