    "This school has been so amazing. It's filled with adults who care and strive to help you grow. It's also a small setting which I found very helpful."

    "New Vista is one of the best schools in the Boulder Valley School District. It is a rich learning environment, an accepting community, and an overall fun and enriching place to be. The academics are specifically catered towards the students with unique classes such as Concept of Identity, Equity, History of Rock, and Human Sexuality. The teachers are incredibly well qualified and very invested in students' success. The school culture is very diverse and inclusive, and there are a multitude of clubs and activities offered, such as Natural Highs, Earth Task Force, and Self Love club. We only offer one sport, which is ultimate frisbee, but most students aren't here for sports anyway. The food is typical school food, and the building is pretty old, but it is getting remodeled in the near future. Overall New Vista is a great place to be!"

    "New Vista is a phenomenal, outside of the box school that not only provides students with a well rounded education, but also the ability to grow outside of the classroom. Due to the alternative nature of this school New Vista students receive an education that far surpasses that of a traditional high school. New Vista students are REQUIRED to get out in the community and take part in volunteering, as well as pursue their own passions. This has allowed for students like myself to excel. Having been taught by passionate teachers and only having to take a few classes at a time has given me the time and ability to gain a deeper understanding about every subject I am taught. New Vista has prepared me for college more than any other high school could. I am honored to be graduating from such a excellent high school."

    "I believe my years at New Vista High School is a very telling account of New Vista's strengths and faults. I transferred there at the beginning of my sophomore year from a large traditional school that had a poor academic record. The safe space New Vista promoted was essential to me getting back on a good track, but as soon as I was on track and ready to learn again, I began to realize that New Vista's non-traditional teaching style and small emphasis on tests and lectures didn't exactly work for me. By the end of my junior year, I was thinking of transferring to another more traditional high school, but I ended up staying at New Vista because of one of its strengths. Because New Vista is such a small school, I was able to receive a set of college courses that more fitted my learning style even though most students were not on that level. Overall, what New Vista lacks in academic rigor can easily be given to the students who really want it because of the school's flexibility."

    "Everyone that comes into New Vista says that it feels different. Everyone is incredibly welcoming and kind. The school is dedicated to making sure that everyone feels welcome and free to be themselves, and it works."
