Student Ambassadors for 2022-2023 - Application is Open

Students: Are you interested in serving as an MVHS Student Ambassador for the 2022-2023 school year? MVHS relies on Student Ambassadors to share their experience from MVHS programs with prospective students and invited guests. Student Ambassadors lead groups of parents/8th-grade students on school tours, and they often participate in student panels hosted for visiting guests; in years past, we have hosted guests from all over the country, and there are several planned visits from educators across the U.S. for the 2022-2023 school year. Student Ambassadors are able to add their service to brag sheets, resumes, community service logs, and college applications, and they are adorned with additional regalia during graduation.

If you are interested in serving as a Student Ambassador, please complete this APPLICATION by Friday, May 27th.

Prom is Next Weekend!

Prom is being held at the San Diego Air and Space Museum next Saturday, May 14th at 7pm. Tickets are on sale now, and guest bid applications are due Friday, May 6th. All participants must provide proof of COVID vaccination OR a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event. Students may proactively share their vaccination status with our nurse, Ms. Franco in the Health Office at any point between now and the event. Students who test will need to show their results at the door.

School rules and dress code will remain in effect for Prom, and all students who attend are subject to search and/or breathalyzer screening.

Progress Report Grades are Available

Progress report grades are now posted and viewable in Aeries. Final exams will be here very soon, but there is still time for students who are struggling to pull up their grades before the end of the year. Students needing some extra assistance are encouraged to work closely with their teachers to best understand what supports and opportunities are available in order to finish the school year strong.

Summer School Opportunities for Credit Recovery and Enrichment

As we did last summer, MVHS will offer summer school opportunities for both credit recovery as well as remediation. Summer school will be in-person and will run in two, 3-week sessions, from June 13th-July 22nd, and students who are interested can choose which session best fits their summer schedule.

Students who failed a class (or classes) will have the option to recover those credits through Edgenuity (online platform) under the guidance and supervision of an MVHS teacher. Our Counseling Team has already met with many students and helped to identify courses that will help to get them back on track for A-G completion and/or graduation requirements.

If you are interested in taking summer school classes to recover credits, please complete THIS FORM.

Enrichment opportunities will be offered in a variety of programs, including the arts, pre-AP preparation, athletics training, and others. We will send targeted communication to students based on course requests for next year, and/or interest in athletics programs at MVHS.

Stay tuned for more details. If you have questions, please contact the school, or contact your student's counselor (for credit recovery).

Senior Information

Graduation is right around the corner on June 8th! Please make sure senior students are requesting time off for mandatory rehearsals on June 6th and June 7th. We would also like to announce that each student will be receiving 8 tickets to give to their family and friends. Tickets will be handed out to students at the second rehearsal on June 7th. If you haven't yet, please don't forget to order or borrow your student's cap and gown through Jostens!

Vista Students and Staff Supporting Ukraine

Schools across Vista Unified have expressed an increasing desire to support the families who have been directly impacted by the conflict in Ukraine. Accordingly, we have organized a districtwide fundraiser, led by a group of passionate Mission Vista High School students and staff members to make this happen. All proceeds will be donated to Save the Children, a highly reputable charity organization whose mission is to provide physical aid (food, medical, hygiene, etc.) and psychological aid to Ukrainian families with young children who have been directly impacted by the conflict. Please consider donating any dollar amount by clicking here or scan the QR code on this flyer.

School Climate Survey for 9th and 12th grade Students

For the past seven years, Vista Unified has partnered with UCSD to obtain school and district climate data from a variety of stakeholders, including students. The data collected is anonymous and is very helpful for us as a school site and a district to understand where we are being successful and where we can grow in terms of creating positive environments that are conducive to student learning.

This year, the surveys are targeting two grade levels--9th and 12th graders only. The link to the survey can be found here.

Post-Deadline Magnet Application for MVHS is Now Live

Prospective families and students who missed the initial magnet application window may apply to our post-deadline (waitlist) application for the 2022-2023 school year. As space becomes available, we will make additional offers of admission to students based on our Districts magnet enrollment policy. Check the MVHS website for a link to the application.
