Alta Vista High School Reviews

By a Former Student on

I only went to Alta Vista for a short period of time, since I was very sick with Leukemia. However, my experience was great. The teachers were fun & kind, yet got the students to get their work finished and turned in on time, in not earlier. I enjoyed attending this school and wish I could've stayed longer.
