    "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!"

    "I am a current 8th grade student of VVMS in the IB/MYP program. Vista Verde is a low income school and isn't in the best of neighborhoods,but the IB program has changed my perspective on my view on almost everything. I used to just concentrate on the top layer perspective but now I look at all sides in much more depth. I've had a great 2yrs there. There have been fights but the Vice principal, the police officer on campus, and the duty aides got a handle on the situations right a away. This is bound to happen at the best of schools. The main point is that the teachers know what they're doing, and they care about each and every student even if it doesn't seem like it from the outside. All the teachers want all of their students to do a great job in their class. In IB we are taught to connect all of our subjects together and I think that all of the teachers do that. The teachers form their curriculum around all of their students' learning abilities. Over all Vista Verde is a great school to go to if you are going in to IB or even just as a regular student. You will fit in any where at VVMS!"

    "I am a 7th grade student attending vvms currently and i reccomend sending your child to this school. The teachers are very attentive and involved with thier students. The principal and VP are also very involved and dont let bullying go unhandled. VVMS is also the only A+ middle school in the district as far as I have looked."
