IB Grades at Vista Magnet


Vista Magnet Middle School has fully transitioned to the International Baccalaureate (IB) grade reporting system in the 2017-2018 school year.  All teachers use IB assessment practices in each class, and report IB grades to all students in order to provide more specific feedback on student progress. The goal is to help students and parents more accurately understand their learning progress, where they currently are on a continuum of skills and performance, and specific next steps for improvement.


Click here to learn more about IB grades and stay tuned for more updates. Our goal is to help all students and parents understand IB grades and use them to improve their learning, please let us know about your questions and feedback. 

VUSD Community Feedback Forums


Each year VUSD gathers feedback from all stakeholder groups to help inform our Blueprint for Educational Excellence and LCAP. Please see information below to attend upcoming forums, or provide your feedback on a digital survey. Thank you!

Important Instructions for Pick up and Drop off

Please remember, all students driven to or from school MUST use our supervised Pick-Up/Drop-Off area at  the Eucalyptus Avenue entrance to the school.  Please do not use our staff parking lot on the corner of Civic Center and Vista Village, this is not a supervised or safe area for students. Full info on our Pick up/Drop off page. 


Please also respect our neighboring businesses near our school. Student drop-off anywhere other than our supervised Eucalyptus Avenue entrance is very dangerous and has become a serious concern. Students walking to and from school may enter and exit through the gates near the main office on Civic Center Drive. Thank you so much for your cooperation.


Favor de recordar que solamente se puede dejar o recoger a los estudiantes en la entrada en la calle Eucalyptus. Favor de no usar el estacionamiento del personal en la esquina de Civic Center y Vista Village, no es un área segura para los estudiantes. Toda la información aquí. 


Adicionalmente, favor de respetar los negocios vecinos. Es muy peligroso dejar sus hijo/as en otro lugar más que en la entrada de Eucalyptus, donde hay supervisión. Los estudiantes que caminan a y de la escuela pueden entrar y salir al lado de la oficina en Civic Center Drive. Gracias por su cooperación.
