About Vista Verde

Welcome to Vista Verde Middle School. It is my pleasure to serve as your principal. I am here to support each of you, help you succeed, and enjoy your middle school years. My goal each school year is to develop and foster relationships with students, parents, faculty and staff while keeping academic achievement and student safety as my top priorities.

I believe open communication is key and encourage each of you to join me in providing the best academic and social environment for our students. My door is always open, please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions or would just like to introduce yourself. I believe “it takes a village to raise a child," and value parents, students and the school working together to achieve success.

Open Enrollment

Continue your child's journey of excellence by open enrolling. Open Enrollment is a process allowing parents or guardians to apply for admission to any public school, as long as there is classroom space available. Parents and guardians often choose to open enroll their children in PVSchools for various reasons, including the unique and innovative award-winning programs, teaching philosophy, extracurricular activities, and more.

For more information on the open enrollment process, to include early bird open enrollment information, visit the PVSchools Open Enrollment webpage.
