About Us

Strategic Plan

Because our commitment to best practices in education is the cornerstone of Vistamar’s mission, we are re-envisioning our school as we enter our second decade of service. We scanned the horizon and adjusted our course, and now we are pleased to share our strategic plan. It outlines our vision for our future and provides a blueprint for achieving the goals we have set.

After completing our self-study and the subsequent seven-year accreditation process by both the California Association of Independent Schools and the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges, the entire Vistamar community participated in a series of conversations to reflect on our accomplishments and to generate ideas for the evolution of our programs, community, and culture. What emerged from these conversations was a reaffirmed commitment to unite in our mission to provide innovative, globally-focused programs to a diverse student body—concepts that were articulated by our founders over a decade ago and still inspire us today. There was also broad agreement that we should continue to stay abreast of the latest research on teaching and learning, and should continually assess our programs to ensure that they reflect not only that research, but also our own educational expertise. Most importantly, all members of the Vistamar community want to ensure that our school is a sustainable institution that will continue to serve students and their families for decades to come. Everyone has expressed a willingness to do their part to make this desire a reality.

We are proudly sharing our vision, and we hope you will feel inspired to help us make it a reality in the years ahead.
