I am so excited and overwhelming proud to read this article. As a former employee of Alta Vista, I can say without hesitation the program and school works! It broke my heart to have to move and leave the staff and school. This by far, all my travels, was the most rewarding time of my life and the students past and present and in the future will be forever changed because of Alta Vista. Education IS Power
