A Short History of Monte Vista
Monte Vista was first established in 1980 as a program under the Simi Valley Adult School, serving only high school students. Our first graduating class consisted of two graduates. In 1996, Monte Vista School moved from the Adult Education campus to its own campus at 1755 Blackstock Avenue, and expanded to serving students in grades 1-12. Average overall school enrollment varies monthly, but generally includes approximately 120-150 students. In August 2011, we moved into new modular buildings, which include a dedicated computer and science lab area, in addition to the classroom building and offices.
Our teachers are committed to the independent study model of education, serving as both curricular experts and supportive partners with their students and families. Our faculty of nine teachers represents over 200 years of teaching experience.
Monte Vista is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, as well as maintaining a comprehensive, approved "A-G" course list with the University of California. Monte Vista School does not currently have any CIF athletic teams, however, we do maintain an approved course list with the NCAA.
Monte Vista adheres to the Simi Valley Unified School District's non-discrimination policy: i.e., it does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic group, race, ancestry, national origin, religion, color or disability in any program or activity of the school.
