Strategic Plan

Vistamar School has embarked on a process to create a new strategic plan. The strategic plan will be a road map for our ongoing work as a school that empowers students and prepares them to contribute and excel in higher education and in life. In keeping with our mission, we will continue to challenge the status quo and maintain our innovative approach -- not reinvent the school, but grow and innovate for the future. Our commitment to best practices in education remains the cornerstone of Vistamar’s mission.
To develop this strategic plan, we have engaged our entire community in the process, with input from all our constituencies, including alumni and alumni parents, current parents, current students, faculty, and staff. These perspectives are critical to the process to ensure that our entire community has an opportunity to help us identify ways the school can and should improve in the future.   

The project is being chaired by Board of Trustees member, Carla Buck, and Head of School, Chris Bright.  The work is guided by a strategic planning committee (SPC) whose job it is to consider the input we receive from all sources and recommend a set of strategic priorities to the Board for adoption as our next Strategic Plan.

Members of the SPC include:
  • Co-Chair:  Chris Bright, Head of School
  • Co-Chair:  Carla Buck, Board Member and parent of alumni
  • Princess Baltimore, Board Trustee & Current Parent
  • Adele Cadres, Executive Assistant to the Head of School
  • Darlene Fountaine, Board Trustee & parent of alumni
  • Jason Gregory, Assistant Head of School
  • Stu MacFarlane, Board Trustee & parent of alumni
  • Sandy Montalvo, parent of current student
  • Sarah Older-Aguilar, Chair, Humanities Dept
  • Sydney Reiner, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer & parent of alumni
  • Kris Rone, Board Chair & parent of alumni
We launched this effort in late 2021 and will be sharing insights and finalizing the plan during late 2022.

Vistamar School is a private independent high school in the South Bay region of Los Angeles.
