Hello Future Panthers. 
Here is a link to sign up for ALL Vista HS athletic information. It's always recommended students get involved in sports. It's a great way to teach students about character and teamwork as well as stay active. Coaches are sometimes the biggest mentors for our students. 
We are asking for families to fill out the interest form by this Tuesday June 15 to get an idea of how many of our students are interested. The coaches will reach out to you with more information. This does not mean you are required to participate but that you are interested. So even if you are considering it, I'd recommend filling out the form.
There will also be a Summer B&G's Basketball, football, field hockey, cross country, volleyball & water polo programs going on at VHS starting June 21st. This is not mandatory but recommended so students can get familiar with the team and coaches. The form will also ask you if you are interested in the summer program.
If you have any questions, please email the Athletic Director Pat Moramarco at patmoramarco@vistausd.org

A-G REQUIREMENTS


A-G REQUIREMENTS

The intent of the "a-g" subject requirements is to ensure that students have attained a body of general knowledge that will provide breadth and perspective to new, more advanced study.

Courses from California high schools used to satisfy the "a-g" subject requirements must be certified by UC and appear on the school's "a-g" course list. These courses are to be academically challenging, involving substantial reading, writing, problems and laboratory work (as appropriate), and show serious attention to analytical thinking, factual content and developing students' oral and listening skills.


The subject requirements:

  • History/social science ("a") - Two years, including one year of world history, cultures and historical geography and one year of U.S. history, or one-half year of U.S. history and one-half year of American government or civics.
  • English ("b") - Four years of college preparatory English that integrates reading of classic and modern literature, frequent and regular writing, and practice listening and speaking.
  • Mathematics ("c") - Three years of college-preparatory mathematics that include or integrate the topics covered in elementary and advanced algebra and two- and three-dimensional geometry.
  • Laboratory science ("d") - Two years of laboratory science providing fundamental knowledge in at least two of the three disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
  • Language other than English ("e") - Two years of the same language other than English or equivalent to the second-level of high school instruction.
  • Visual and performing arts ("f") - One year chosen from dance, drama/theater, music or visual art.
  • College-preparatory elective ("g") - One year chosen from the "a-f" courses beyond those used to satisfy the requirements above, or courses that have been approved solely in the elective area.
