    My daughter attended Alta Vista for PK and learned nothing but coloring. I have since enrolled her at Mesita Middle school and noticed a 180 degree change in her study habits and how much she has learned. Alta Vista needs to have a lower student to teacher ratio and better curriculum.

    We have a new Principal and he seems to really care about our children. The teachers at Alta Vista are the best! These teachers are all about the students and will go out of their way to make sure that their students get the help that they need in any subject. I love this school!
