    "Being a former student, I LOVED this school! It's been such a great help, the material in each subject are at a standard high school level. The programs they gave us to do our projects are much more better to use while giving presentations. As well as the teachers, they do an excellent job at helping the students to keep up the best they can as well as teach them in the best methods. Wish all schools had the wonderful staff that VMMS has. Not to mention the way how this all helps you later, having some background knowledge does really help you, especially in high school. For me, VMMS was the best choice that both my parents and I have made. Their clubs are also a great way to distract yourself from school. Not to mention the way they help prepare you at a high school level with methods to complete things such as homework, projects, notes and so much more. I just loved going there and I hope it stays that way for the future students that will have an amazing and outgoing set of 3 years. Also, having some other things that most schools don't have, VMMS is truly a school to must go when you have a chance. I actually wishing as still in 8th grade. Wish you luck VMMS!"

    "This school is amazing! the science department has a lot more supplies than most schools. Amazing teachers. Excellent math departments. One thing is that students do get more projects but because they are being prepared for high school and to get them ready for the California Standards Test (CST).This school also has a swimming unit for Physical Education (PE) which is something that most schools don't have. In conclusion I would recommend this school for any student who is willing to work hard for a good education."

    "This school is what you make of it. If you decide not to be a disciplined student, you won't be rewarded, as the program is demanding. If you get caught up in its flaws (not much choice for electives, "lack of individual expression"), you won't be able to properly appreciate the wonderful staff and advanced math courses. As an alumni, I have total appreciation for my experience there, having made great friends and received a wonderful education. If you want a curriculum surrounding the arts, go to VAPA. This is a science and mathematics-oriented school. The bottom line is that you will receive the best middle school education in VUSD here - if you are willing to work for it."

    "Vista Magnet is not for everyone. My son and his friends were happy to leave after three years at this school. The principal is very demanding and strict, the teachers are overworked and underpaid, and the support staff is stressed. The students don't have any choices for elective classes because all students take art and spanish classes for three consecutive years (boring!) This school doesn't even have a music program so students are not able to explore other options or be creative. One good thing about this school is their math department which prepares most students for advanced math classes. Unfortunately many math teachers leave this school every year. If your child likes math and science then this is the right school for him/her."
