    Vista Hills Elementary School, home of the Crusaders, was built in 1977. Currently a Title One School with a student population of approximately 650 students. Our school proudly serves students in PPCD and Kinder through 6th grade. There is a bilingual section in each grade level that serves our bilingual population. It is located off Lomaland and La Subida Dr. School colors are red, black and white. We are a feeder school to both Desert View Middle and Hanks High School. Vista Hills goal is to develop the "whole child." Student success has always been a tradition here at Vista Hills.

    This year all students in 3rd through 6th grade will have access to either a HP Stream or Chromebook for instructional use. 

    All Kinder through 6th grade students participate in a Research Based Instruction (RBI) Fine Arts Program: a research based program with a component that most programs do not have, and that is integration of fine arts. It also integrates a curriculum where they could teach their disciplines within the classroom. Each grade level focuses on a thematic unit which gives them an opportunity to research, sing, create projects, write reports and present oral presentations. 

    Band and orchestra is offered to students in 5th and 6th grade. For the past several years these programs have received many awards including superior ratings at band and orchestra competitions.  

    Vista Hills also offers numerous extra curricular activities beyond the classroom such as:

    Excalibur- A service club available to students in grades 3 - 6. Membership is open to all who meet the requirements stated: Complete 6 school services and 10 community / home services every 9 weeks. All services are voluntary -- not for pay. Maintain a 75 and above and E’s or S’s for conduct on all report cards. Attend club meetings (One meeting / month). Demonstrate character traits such as Responsibility, Respect, Honesty, Kindness, etc.

    Rachel's Club- Anti-bully program for 6th grade students interested in spreading acts of kindness.

    Volleyball and cheerleading are two sports that are also offered afterschool to students in 3rd through 6th.
