Message from Our Principal

  • Welcome to Vista High School - Home of the Lobos!

    I am excited to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. Our fundamental purpose at Vista is high levels of learning for EVERY student at any cost! We are committed and prepared to provide a safe and academically challenging environment that empowers students to become innovative thinkers ready to thrive in the 21st century.

    Some of the unique benefits of our small school campus include: low student-teacher ratios, block scheduling, service/volunteering options, differentiated instruction, and individualized college and career planning to support students in their next step following high school graduation. At Vista, we cultivate an environment where students feel safe, respected, and valued as we support students in maximizing their achievement. We strive to embody Yuma Union High School District’s Ready Now Yuma philosophy of every student being challenged, supported, and prepared!

    We also support the Strategies for Success program located on the main campus. Strategies for Success offers YUHSD long-term suspended students the opportunity to continue their education while observing the disciplinary restrictions from their home schools. At SFS, our focus is on character, remediation, continued academic content and skill building, and the successful transition of students back to their respective home campuses.

    As we embark on another fantastic school year, the Vista Team and I pledge to partner with students, parents, and community members to bring high levels of learning for EVERY student at any cost.

    Have a fantastic year!

    Brett Surguine
