We follow the vision of our district and firmly believe, here at Vulture Peak Middle school, that our students are capable of anything they set their minds too. We believe in their success and their achievement. We believe in their good character and support their growth and good citizenship in the school environment. We support the district vision of, "Every child has hope, every student is a graduate, every graduate has a dream." We know the power of its meaning. Each one of your children is our pride and joy in the classroom each day.
When it comes to learning, each grade level has its own pod of classrooms in our spacious campus with special programs such as art, yearbook, technology, physical education, band, choir, and student council. We encourage students to participate where they can. These opportunities will help build leadership and teamwork skills. After school, students can enjoy an array of sports ranging from girls and boys volleyball, basketball, baseball, and softball. Students can also be involved in our after-school activities through the 21st Century Program.
