Our Principal

Welcome Nueva Vista High School students and families.  I have the honor of being the Principal at NVHS this year. We take pride in being a school where every student can find an avenue for success and in being a community where everyone strives to find the best in themselves and others. We have much to be proud of at Nueva Vista and I look forward to another year of serving our community.

The success of our students is built on the partnership we have with our families and community members. I am grateful that we have such an amazing relationship with our community, and we will continue to strive to be the type of school to where our families can be proud to send their children. Our entire staff works very hard to create a positive environment where every person’s unique
strengths and talents are celebrated. We have a culture of high expectations and it is our sincere goal that each and every one of our students graduates with a plan for the future. The combination of focusing on our students’ academic success as well as their social and emotional well-being creates an environment where our students do amazing things every year.  This year we are partnering with our Bassett Adult School to enroll our students in the CTE program so that they can graduate with a certificate as well as their high school diploma.  

We have a kind, caring, highly-qualified staff who truly believes that every one of our students can and will succeed. I am proud to be a part of the tradition of success that has been built over many years at NVHS and am proud to be your Principal. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with you again this year and I look forward to a great year. 

Maria Herrera, Principal
