NVHS Reach Higher Club

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays! We wanted to end the 2020 year with all the positives that have happened since January. Our Reach Higher Club discussed all the positives of the year. As we reflect back on the whole year, we have had so many amazing Reach Higher moments happen at our site. As our principal says all the time: "Stay Positive! We will get through this. We are the Best High School in the World!"

Reach Higher Club Mission Statement

The Norte Vista High School Reach Higher Club supports the Reach Higher Initiative focused on activating support systems to help ALL students gain access to the tools and opportunities they need to Reach Higher and obtain a postsecondary degree whether at a traditional four-year college, a two-year community college, military, or through an industry-recognized training program. We also support the When We All Vote Campaign focused on guiding students and parents in registering to vote and raising awareness in our community.

About us....

Students learn about 9th-12th grade community service opportunities, scholarships, and going on for more education or training after high school. This club also collaborates with the AVID Program.
