Vista del Lago High School Reviews
My daughter hates it. Hard to make friends and fit in. Block scheduling does not work for her. Will transfer her to a more diverse school like FHS.
OUTSTANDING school academically and athletic wise. There are just few bad apples but for the most part the teachers here are GREAT!
The bad thing is the students. This school is just not a diverse school and that is our downfall.
My daughter attends Vista Del Lago and she loves the academic programs,it suits her very well. She tells me the teachers are very supportive and are always available to her. Go Eagles!
I have two sons that attend Vista Del Lago and it is a wonderful school. The recent API places it number #1 in the three surrounding counties. Strong teachers that care about each students progress and a supportive administration staff.
my son went to this school and it was terrible, the academics program is one of the worst i have ever seen in my whole life, nice campus but terrible school.
