Words from our Principal

Crusader Families,


I would like to welcome everyone to a new school year at Bonita Vista Middle School. Although this year looks different from any year we have ever experienced, we are excited to get started.


Below is some information that will help students and parents before the school year starts. On Thursday, July 30th, you will receive emails with links to a Virtual Student Orientation video, a Middle School Success 101: What to Expect as a Parent During Distance Learning video, and if you RSVP, a link to attend a BVM Town Hall meeting Thursday evening at 6pm.


Please remember our offices and campus are CLOSED at this time. You may call our main number for assistance at 619-397-2200. The voicemails are monitored regularly and someone will respond to your message as soon as possible. You may also email me directly and I will make sure the right person gets your message. My email is included below.


We look forward to working with all of our students and families this year and we are here to help you with answering questions and hopefully relieving some of the stress and anxiety of beginning a year with Distance Learning. Let's make is a great year!
