Lynwood Unified’s Vista High School Earns 6-Year WASC Accreditation

Vista High School has been awarded a six-year accreditation with a two-day mid-cycle review by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) for fostering high-quality student learning and ongoing school improvement.
Vista was awarded following a campus review. Vista provided evidence of meeting achievement objectives, including teaching students to be productive thinkers and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of key facts, concepts and skills in all subjects. At Vista, students achieve this by using technology to access, communicate, interpret and evaluate information.
“This is a great accomplishment, and I’m proud of every member of the Vista staff for working together to make this possible,” Principal Gilbert Mireles said. “We will continue to move forward with our focus and goals to improve Vista High School and provide all students with an excellent education.”
The WASC team observed how the school provides students with a nurturing learning environment that promotes academic achievement and personal growth and respect for the rights and diversity of others. The WASC team praised the school’s action plan for providing technology-based education, engaging parents, exposing students to college and career options and boosting student achievement and attendance.
“We are proud that Vista High School now joins Lynwood High School and Lynwood Community Adult School in receiving a six-year WASC accreditation,” Superintendent Gudiel R. Crosthwaite said. “Student success is our primary goal, and the WASC accreditation is an indicator that we are hitting that mark.”
