Environmental Sciences

Our school has developed a beautiful Environmental Sciences program. In addition to curriculum that is aligned with the newly adopted common core standards students learn how to adopt a respect and concern for both humans and nature. This is achieved through hands on projects in our science lab, computer lab, and culinary garden. In addition our students also get the opportunity to participate in field trips that provide real world connections to their projects

Spanish/English Dual Language Immersion Program

Pueblo Vista is now offering a Spanish and English Dual Immersion Program. Students who begin the program in Kindergarten will be bilingual and bi-literate by the end of the 5th grade. By developing fluency in two languages, we are able to offer a rich, culturally diverse experience for the entire school community.
