Vista Unified School District

Our vision in Vista Unified School District is that every student graduates from Vista Unified as a resilient, agile learner and creative problem solver who navigates the world with confidence and kindness and eagerly embraces local and global challenges. 

Our Framework for the Future

In the fall of 2021, the Vista Unified School District Board of Education and the Superintendent, Dr. Matt Doyle, launched a collaborative process with the Vista community to develop a long-term vision for public education in Vista. This vision seeks to promote equity, collaboration, trust, kindness, and respect, providing students real-world experiences and strong academic preparation. In this vision of the future, we want to create the conditions where every child and adult is supported, challenged, and inspired by engaging learning experiences.
