A group of civic-minded families from several South Bay communities has come together to create a non-profit, independent high school. These first students will ultimately have a huge impact on the school by starting traditions, initiating clubs and activities, and shaping the school community.
Vistamar School empowers students, preparing them to contribute and excel in higher education and in life, and commits to:
• A broad and balanced program that challenges and engages students, building their individual skills and inspiring a passion for learning.
• An intimate atmosphere that fosters initiative, responsibility, knowledge of self and connections to others.
• Diversity of thought and culture that encourages authentic exchange of perspectives, mutual respect and a mature understanding of the world.
In their studies, in their work, and in their communities, Vistamar students will embrace lives of learning, integrity, and purpose.
