    IB Grades at Vista Magnet

    Vista Magnet Middle School utilizes the International Baccalaureate (IB) grade reporting system. All teachers use IB assessment practices in each class, and report IB grades to all students in order to provide 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.

    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 and do not use their parking areas. 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.
