Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve as the Principal of Nueva Vista this year.   I am looking forward an outstanding year and to continue the great things that are happening at NVHS.

The main focus at NVHS is for students to be able to come to school each day knowing that they are cared for and that there is a plan for their future.  We work to create opportunities for students to make-up credits with an emphasis on earning their high school diploma.  But we also understand the importance of building relationships and developing a connectivity to their campus.  

We offer a variety of opportunities throughout the year with the support of our ASB organization, for students to get involved and be part of the Aztec family.  We also provide “Fun Fridays" once a month, that brings both staff and students together - to connect, socialize and build relationships.  We have a focused Career Center where students can gather important information on college and career opportunities to help guide them after they graduate.  Lastly, we are kicking off our CTE Logistics and Distribution program this year.  These courses will offer students a hands-on program that will help to prepare them for careers in materials management, transportation and warehousing. 

At Nueva Vista High School, we are passionate in our belief that all students can and will "Pass with P.R.I.D.E.".  Our teachers and staff are constantly encouraging our students to demonstrate a

Positive Attitude,

Respect, Integrity,

Dependability, and

Effort Toward Graduation

in class and on campus every day.  Our goals for your student at Nueva Vista are

  1. To enjoy an enriching educational experience
  2. To feel connected with staff members on campus
  3. To know that their success is important to us 

 ​I am excited to start this journey with all of the students who will be setting foot on this campus this year.  My door is always open and I look forward to supporting every student that becomes an Aztec this year.​
