    "My son has been going through something similar. When my son finally fought back, I got a call from the principal and she said that she didn't care what the boy had done to him in the past. Also there is a boy in his class that has called my son stupid, has pushed him on a few occassions and held him down and threatened him. My son did not want to tell his teacher because he said that she would just side with the other kid. So I told her. She talked to them both and said that they discussed how my son could have a better attitude. I had to walk away from her because I was so angry and dissappointed. I have lost all respect for this teacher and principal. I really don't know what to do. If you go to the board, do the teachers just make it harder on your kids? I am also worried what this is doing to my son. He is a good kid!"

    "currently, im in eighth grade, i have been in this school(and AVID) for two years. saying 'the students are mean' or 'the teachers are bad' is waay too general. yes, some teachers *cough*need more practice....and of course! theres bad kids/people wherever you go! you cant blame that on the school. and i dont believe that AVID and MYP students get more attention, its that they PAY MORE ATTENTION TO SCHOOL themselves! there are things i really hate when im at school, but i wouldnt exactly blame that 'on the school', people just use that as an excuse."

    "I am currently an 8th grader in MYP at Vista Verde. I love this program and Vista Verde. All of the staff at Vista Verde is fantastic. I have never been so happy to be a part of a greater picture. MYP has encouraged me to look at things from a different perspective. It has taught me how to be a better person. While at Vista Verde I have tried things that I normally wouldn't consider. I've tried numerous sports and after school clubs. At first these things didn't interet me much, but I have made friends that I know will last a life time. Another great thing about MYP is the trip to Wahington, DC. This trip gives students the opprutunity to meet people from different places around the US. We were really able to connect with them and see their perspective on different topics. Vista Verde's teachers are also a key part to my success. They are all willing to help and truly want the best for us. Vista Verde has shown me that I can do anything. I wouldn't want to be at any other middle school because Vista Verde is perfect."

    "I hate this school!!! i am a student at Vista Verde and honestly wish i wasn't.I have asked to be transfered many times but it has not worked . The students are mean and pick on anyone who has an oppinion different than thare own.the teachers are only pay atenion to the kids who are misbehaving in class ,not the ones who actually want to learn.Children are are constenly cursing , texting,chewing gum,and talking when the teachers talking, and get away with it becuse the teachers are too bisy trying to handle one or more children who are making a secne and rilling the other kids up. Besides the disiplin,the edgucation also needs work.The school has a few good programs that rase the test scores,but if your not in them you are constenly taught,and treated, like a third grader.Parents,if your reading this do NOT send your child to this school.I have been hear for almost 2years now and have hated every second of it . ~annonomous Vista Verde student"

    "Our daughter has attended Vista Verde the last two years while in the IB Program. She has had nothing but great experiences there! The IB teachers are knowledgeable, informed, caring, and really respect the different learning styles of each student. Beyond that, the principal and vice-principal are truly active in the daily activities of all the students in and outside the classroom. We highly recommend Vista Verde and the IB Program there!"
