Readers are Leaders
Vistamar School has created a unique partnership with their neighborhood school district, Wiseburn School District. Vistamar students visit Cabrillo Elementary School once a week for Readers are Leaders, a mentoring and literacy program. Outside of the classroom, students also work with the elementary school students in the garden, nurturing both the plants and their relationships.
The DaVinci Schools are a group of four small charter schools in Los Angeles, California. They combine a project-based, college-preparatory curriculum with real-world active learning, internships, and early college classes ensuring that students acquire the authentic skill sets needed for real-world readiness. Vistamar has partnered with the DaVinci schools and their administration in particular to share information and learn about their strong internship program. In addition, the schools host a joint Career Day speaker.
Richstone Family Center
Vistamar School works closely with the Richstone Family Center, a resource center for families in crisis. Once a month, Vistamar students create and facilitate activities and games for the afterschool program. Vistamar is also part of special events at Richstone Families, in particular providing full Thanksgiving meals for families.
