We are a comprehensive high school that enhances academics through diverse and rigorous coursework, arts and athletics to prepare students for college and career. The endeavor continues to increase student opportunities for preparation for college (AP, Dual, AVID, CTE).
Each year we reevaluate the effectiveness of each program and make changes as warranted based on college and career requirements. We have increased the number of course offerings in both Advanced Placement and dual enrollment. These courses are ABOR approved and allow students to earn college credit prior to graduating high school. Furthermore, we keep abreast of current job trends that are growing in Surprise and Arizona.

Valley Vista High School serves the communities of the Northwest Valley and is conveniently located in the heart of Surprise on the northwest corner of Greenway Road and Parkview Place.

Valley Vista is focused on academics that prepare students for college and career. Valley Vista understands that a holistic approach is needed to meet the diversity of the student population. The master schedule is strategically planned to accommodate students’ interests and academic needs. A variety of challenging Advanced Placement and dual enrollment courses are offered to provide students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. Career and Technical Education (CTE) opportunities are offered through signature programs, partnerships with community colleges, local businesses, CTED/WestMEC and CTSOs (Career and Technical Education Organizations). Furthermore, programs such as AVID are instituted into the culture to promote academic and post-graduation success. At Valley Vista, academics are celebrated on campus.
