Vistamar School was founded in 2005 on the principle that diversity of thought and culture encourages authentic exchange of perspectives, mutual respect, and a mature understanding of the world. These principles profoundly shaped Vistamar’s multicultural curriculum, vibrant student co-curricular life, and lively family engagement and educational programming. We learn more in an environment where preconceived notions are continuously challenged by fellow students, faculty, staff and families who come from different backgrounds. We practice authentic and ongoing commitment to promoting healthy social identity formation as well as the shared values that unite our community and allows us to develop greater empathy as a result.
Vistamar strives to serve as a leader among Los Angeles area independent schools. Our top priorities include supporting ongoing efforts to recruit and retain excellent teachers of color, design of inclusive co-curricular programming for all Vistamar students, and increasing our outreach and engagement with all Vistamar families.
