Principal's Message

Hello Vista Horizon Family! 

My name is Enock Benavides and I am thrilled for the chance to be the principal this school year—and beyond. Some of you already know me, because we’ve been lucky enough to be partners and colleagues for our Vista Charter Public Schools for several years. Others probably know very little about me.

Let me start by telling you a bit about myself. I was a teacher at the middle school level for 10 years. Next, I was given the chance to move out of the classroom to be the Educational Interventionist and Assistant Principal for Vista Charter Middle School. When I started my career, I didn’t think I would ever be a principal; however, when I started working as an Interventionist, I learned how much I loved working with teachers and students in a leadership role. I loved collaborating with teachers, interacting with students, and working with families. I also enjoyed working with principals and learned a great deal about leading a school. I am looking forward to collaborate, work as a team, and support our school community. We are a Team and partner in the educational success of our students in our community.

On a personal level, I am married, I have 3 children, and a dog. I spend a lot of my free time playing music, hiking, playing soccer, and going out with my family. I also love to read books about instruction and leadership and to serve my home base community of faith.

I am blessed to be an addition to the Vista Horizon Global Academy this year. I am here to serve, collaborate, and work with all of you to help our students in our community.
With Love and Respect,

Mr. Benavides
