Sierra Vista High School

Sierra Vista High School serves students between the ages of 11 and 22 with severe disabilities. Students at the school come from throughout the coastal North County area. The mission at the school is to prepare students to reach their maximum potential as independent and productive members of the community.

“With a dedicated staff and family-like atmosphere, SVHS prides itself on its uniqueness,” Principal Chris Altona said. “Our purpose is to prepare students for a future beyond public education.” This goal can be achieved through mainstreaming, regular high-school curriculum, vocational education, independent study, specialized medical care or community involvement.

The school opened in 1978 across the street from Vista High School. It serves about 100 students and has 11 teachers and about 30 instructional assistants. Communication is a strong priority at the school, which has its own bimonthly newsletter, Tiger Tales.
