Alta Vista is a school basically for kids expelled (or got a suspended expulsion) from Mountain View, Los Altos, or Palo Alto high schools. This school doesn’t exactly have the best academics. The students’ school day ends at around lunchtime. Their temporary campus is hideous. It looks more like a daycare center than anything resembling a school campus. If you live in MV or Los Altos area, you probably wouldn’t voluntarily go to AVHS.
