Vista Magnet Middle School Reviews
My son started this school in 6th grade and is now in 7th. This school has a zero tolerance policy on BULLYING but yet my son has been Bullied from day 1 in 6th grade and continues to be bullied by several students to this day. My wife and I have talked with teachers, counslers and even the assistant principal whos response to us removing our son from the school was " You have to do what you have to do" Which to us did not seem like they cared about our son or his educational experience. Are they there for our kids or their High Test scores which they seem to be more worried about! My son is sad when we drop him off in the morning and never has a happy day in school. We are currently looking for another school to enroll him in.
Great school and teachers.
