Open Quote I'm a graduate from Vista High and also have a child whom I have custody of attending this school. Vista High is a better school than Lynwood High and Firebaugh High combine. The teachers are magnificent; they dedicate more of their time to the students than the teacher I had at Lynwood High. My sister is attending Firebaugh; well there is nothing special about it besides the controversy. Nevertheless, Vista is a great school. If your child is ever sent to attend this school, it the thing that could ever happen because they will have a 95% of graduating. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
