Dear Vista Family,
I am honored to lead Vista Horizon Global Academy, the newest Vista Charter Public Schools campus, and proud of the progress made in our first year. This year will be full of opportunities for continued collaboration with our amazing families, school staff and Vista team and I am excited about all the possibilities for learning and growing together.
Our organization’s mission to transform the school experience is at the heart of all we do. Through our signature instructional methods, which include practices such as the Way of Council, the workshop approach and global education, we will continue to bring student-centered pedagogy to life while balancing rigorous academic and social-emotional learning.
Every school year presents challenges, some the same from one year to the next, while others are unique. The challenges faced these past months as we have modified our lives due to Covid-19 are enormous and have required the implementation and constant tweaking of new strategies as we all work to make school work for everyone. Fortunately, our organization is small, nimble and staffed with employees committed to making this experience as positive as possible. As always, our focus is on transforming the learning experience – regardless of whether it’s in person or virtual.
As this new year unfolds, know that I am here to help parents and students navigate the many challenges school presents and to also celebrate accomplishments right alongside you. My office door, whether virtual or physical, is open to each of you and I am always happy to speak with and assist you.
Michael Rosner, Principal
