Athletics

Mission Statement

 The mission of Vista Peak Exploratory athletics and activities is to provide opportunities for students that maximize student engagement, participation and achievement. Student athletes are expected to display a competitive spirit, exhibit good sportsmanship and meet our standards for behavior and academic effort.

Philosophy

We believe that participation in athletics and activities is a powerful tool for the academic and personal growth of our students. The work habits and character development necessary to be successful in athletics and activities has a direct influence on a student’s academic and personal achievement.

Benefits of School Based Athletics

  • A student involved in middle school athletics has a much lower chance of receiving a behavior referral.
  • A student’s engagement, as measured by effort grades, dramatically increases when involved in a middle school sport or activity.
  • Coaches and teachers have anecdotally noticed great improvement of the self-efficacy of a student after they become involved in athletics and activities.
  • Students who stay involved in school-based athletics or activities at lease up until they turn 15 have much higher graduations rates.
  • Female students who stay involved in school-based athletics or activities at lease up until they turn 15 have a much lower risk of teenage pregnancy.
