About Alta Vista School

Hello and welcome!

The school years are a time of wonderment, discovery, and development of self-reliance, and therefore, interestingly called the "wonder years." Alta Vista is a departure from the static state of traditional education, and instead forges into a dynamic, engaging, interactive process for student growth.

With an emphasis on science, math, engineering, and the arts, Alta Vista School encourages students to go beyond a strong academic foundation to engage in their community, their environment, and pursue their passions. 

Sincerely,

Mr. Ed

​Retired Head of School
