Alta Vista Community Charter School is an extraordinary organization of experiential, project-based learning, built upon a foundation of partnership among our Governance Council, students, exceptional staff, highly involved families, and supportive district authorizer.  Our founders chose the charter school model because of deeply held beliefs that parent choice in education is a right, that schools should be held accountable for student learning, and that infusing learning with real-life experiences cultivates successful, responsible and valuable citizens.   
  Alta Vista is known for the incredibly welcoming, caring and supportive nature of our community. Our small size size allows us to build strong, trusting connections and advance the school’s work on behalf of our students. Relationships are the essential component for our students progress. The Alta Vista team believes that every child is exceptional and has a right and responsibility to cultivate and nurture their own unique interests and abilities.
My goal as the educational leader of this school is to inspire children and staff to reach for their full potential in an environment that nurtures curiosity, collaboration, respect, and civic responsibility. Experiential education has been at the heart of my work in education since founding my first charter school in 2005. I am honored to be a member of the exceptional team of educators, paraprofessionals and staff members at Alta Vista.  We hope you will visit our campus to learn more about our program.
Camille Taylor, Ed.D.
