A Message From the Principal

Dear Alta Vista High School Students, Parents and Families,

I am honored to have been appointed the principal for Alta Vista High School. I am humbled every day by the students of our district and will work tirelessly to ensure they are ready for college, career, and life.

I am in my 22nd year of education. I began my career as a Special Education teacher at El Capitan High School, where I also coached varsity baseball and football and served as the athletic director. I have been a high school assistant principal and served as a Special Education Administrator. As an administrator in the district office at San Diego Unified School District I oversaw 24 schools and, most recently, I was the assistant principal at Madison Middle School.

I look forward to welcoming students back to school this August. I am committed to partnering with our parents and community to ensure every student is supported to find their strengths, interests, and values.

I can be reached at davidrios@vistusd.org or via telephone 760-724-3775 if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thank you,

David Rios
Principal
Alta Vista High School
