Ms. Andrea Morici

Welcome to Vista Verde Middle School. It is my pleasure to serve as your Principal.  I would like you to know that I am here to support each of you, help you succeed, and enjoy your middle school years.  My role is to assist students, parents, and teachers in making each student’s time in middle school safe, enjoyable, and a great learning experience. 

Let me tell you a little bit about me…

I am Ms. Morici.  I was born in Brooklyn, New York and moved to Arizona in 1979.  I grew up and attended school in the Deer Valley School District in Glendale, AZ.  I received my B.S. at ASU and M.Ed. from Northern Arizona University, Go Devils!  I started my teaching career in 1995 in the Deer Valley School District, where I taught middle school math for ten years. During this time I also coached girls volleyball and basketball, and was the athletic director at the middle school level. I came to PVUSD in 2005 to be the Assistant Principal at Sunrise Middle School.  From 2009-2011, I was the principal of Sunset Canyon Elementary School in PV.  I am very excited to be at Vista Verde and back in the "Middle Level" where my love and passion is. On my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children, family and friends.

At Vista Verde, there are many opportunities for students to become successful. Our teachers are committed to providing meaningful engaging instruction. Parents, please encourage your son or daughter to expand his/her horizons by participating in as many activities as possible. Research shows that the more students get actively involved in their school, the more successful they are.  After school clubs/sports teams allow our students a great opportunity to meet many students with the same interest as theirs. 

Please feel free to call, email, or drop by if you have any questions or would just like to introduce yourself. I believe in the value of parents, students and the school working together as a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More).
