Middle Schools

The Vista Unified Middle School Instructional Sprint Team, which included teachers and administrators from all five Vista Unified middle schools, developed recommendations for the 2020-2021 school year that are organized in three overarching categories: Learner-Centered Instruction in all Learning Environments, Assessment, and Parents as Partners. These recommendations are intended to provide meaningful and relevant learning opportunities to all students regardless of the learning environment. Key considerations used to develop these recommendations were equity, high expectations for all students, accountability, consistency, and clear communication.
