General School Mission

"At Vista Valley Day School each child is respected as an individual who will learn at his or her own pace. Our academic program is administered through an enriched curriculum which is developmentally appropriate. Teacher directed and child initiated activities take place throughout the day and are designed to encourage critical thinking skills, decision making, and self esteem. They will also stimulate each child?s cognitive , social, emotional, creative and physical development."
