Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of VISTA is to create a learning environment that allows students to have power in developing their identity within personal, interpersonal and educational realms. We provide a quality education for all students, by creating a learning community that involves students in their development of the knowledge, skills, attitude, behaviors, aspirations, and beliefs needed to be successful academically and possess life long learning skills. We believe that children have the power to control their learning and surmount challenges due to poverty and second language learning, by providing a learning environment that focuses on developing deeper understandings through problem solving, real life applications and prompt interventions. VISTA students will practice, reflect and learn by setting short-term and long-term personal learning goals, building metacognition of their own development, and making decisions as to what steps they need to take in order to achieve those goals.
The school’s structures and processes (e.g. classrooms, guidance conferences, focus periods) will promote rigorous study with individualized support for all students. Through this individualized focus, VISTA will provide all students, (whether gifted, learning disabled, English Language Learner, minority, etc.) a differentiated learning environment which allows for a spectrum of practices, ranging from remedial to accelerated learning opportunities.
