About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Vista Charter Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Vista Charter Academy Reviews
This is the worst school I have ever been a part of. Since we moved and needed something close by we signed our kids up, but within half a year we pulled them. This school has a few great teachers, but for the most part they don't have it together. The facilities are sub-par and it stinks every time I walk into the building. In addition they have so much turn over in staff that I question the integrity and ability of their administration. The NHA Charter organization markets academics, as if they have re-invented the wheel better, but it is a hoax, there is nothing special about this school or it's academics. My children now attend an area public school, which I argue is not only more rigorous, but it doesn't smell bad when you walk in!
It is the Best school!! The teachers and Principle are great and they keep the kids on the right path!!
