Our mission at Vista Horizon is to create a transformative TK-5 learning experience that is engaging, globally oriented, and builds a strong STEAM foundation for college and career readiness. We provide a quality education for all students that focuses on both heart and mind as critical tools of student engagement in learning. Our compassionate community of global learners develops students’ knowledge and skills, as well as their attitudes, behaviors, aspirations, and beliefs for success in the 21st century economy.
We envision a transformed school experience where Vista Horizon students develop global competence as well as a strong technological foundation, investigate the world beyond their immediate environment, conduct effective and pertinent research, recognize divergent perspectives, communicate their ideas effectively, and take action to improve their own conditions and the world around them. We envision a school where students have a say in what they learn and how they learn it, apply knowledge and skills to authentic and every-day tasks that have local and global significance, and have myriad opportunities to exhibit their mastery to a real-world audience. Most importantly, VHGA envisions a school where students enter to learn, but leave ready to humanely serve through a deeper understanding of their role in impacting positive change on the world around them.
