Supporting AVS

One of the best aspects of having a child at Alta Vista is becoming a part of the vibrant AVS community.

The AVS community is enriched and supported by the parents who share their time to organize school events, mentor sports, facilitate admissions outreach, and also by the generous financial contributions by its parents, friends, and staff, that allow Alta Vista to continue to grow and provide the very best programs for our children.
