Diablo Vista Middle School is a lovely school located in Danville city's easternmost point. During its first year, which opened during August 2000, Diablo Vista served 343 students in the sixth and seventh grades. They represent 982 sixth, seventh and eighth-grade students now in our 18th year. They pride ourselves in providing all students with a strong, standard-based education while helping them through the challenging years of change between elementary and high school.
Their campus contains both stationary and mobile computer laboratories, laptop carts, a studio for video production, five fully equipped science labs, classrooms for choral and instrumental music, an art lab and a food lab.
A state-of-the-art, completely networked Library / Media Centre, houses a library, computer lab with 32 networked computers, meeting space, counseling center and offices for our training managers, psychologists, and speech therapists.
Since 2007 they have appreciated using our 15-acre property, which includes a state-of-the-art all-weather track and field, a full-size baseball field, a full-size softball field, and 90 school and community parking spaces. They were proud to open our gymnasium and locker rooms in the Fall of 2008. In 2010 they opened four new classrooms with a versatile learning environment. During the summer of 2011, a solar power project was completed and they now enjoy using sun power provided by the solar panels that cover our upper parking lot.
At Diablo Vista, they attempt to give our students a wide variety of co-curricular activities. Participation in these events helps students interact with their classes. Such events provide students with the ability to make friends, socialize with a variety of people, and create a sense of accomplishment that comes from personal success in events related to education. Student interactions with co-curricular activities serve as a bridge toward the objective of full academic, social, emotional and physical development. Students must be given a 2.0 to attend. Soaring Eagle wins credit for taking part in student activities.
Here is the vision of this school:
