It is an honor and privilege to be the principal of Alta Vista Community Charter School. Thank you for visiting our web page and welcome to our school community.
Alta Vista was founded in 2012 with just 96 students, and it has grown steadily since its inception. We are a small school community with just one class per grade. This small school size has created a tight-knit school setting where students and parents alike feel a strong sense of community and belonging. Our Alta Vista school site has a rich history because it was one of the first elementary school sites serving the residents of Auburn. The campus is nestled on the side of a hill surrounded by mature oak trees.
We have a dedicated team of teachers and staff members who routinely go above and beyond for our students. Our teachers and staff know each child by name, and they are a collaborative group of professionals who alway put students first when making decisions. We take pride in our strong partnerships with our families to ensure the success of all of our students. I am often in classrooms, and I am so lucky to get to observe the amazing work these groups of educators are doing each and every day.
Alta Vista is built on the foundation of including flexible learning options for families along with project-based learning opportunities for students. Last year our parent volunteers and community partners received a grant that has allowed us to plant an orchard on our hillside. This orchard is already producing fruit! Eventually these fruit trees and grapevines will produce food to feed our students as part of our nutrition services. Additionally, the food produced by this orchard will enhance our culinary program. We have an expansive garden area across from our orchard. This garden area will be revitalized this next spring and is intended to create hands-on science for our students.
We have a classroom that has been transformed into a Culinary Lab. This program was also inspired by student interest, and fully developed by our parent community. The program is currently running with a dedicated team of volunteers. Our Culinary Lab is also available for our science program. The Bucks Booster Club is our parent teacher organization. They do a phenomenal job at financially supporting our programs including the Culinary Lab. They have developed traditionally fund raising events that are the pillars of tradition at Alta Vista. Some of those events include the annual Jog-a-Thon, Harvest Festival, Talent Show, and Chili competition.
We are now planning and preparing for the 2022-2023 school year. If you would like to schedule a tour, please contact our office at (530) 885-7067. I would love to meet you and show you our amazing school.
