Principal's Message

It is an honor and a privilege to serve the students and families of Buena Vista High School. Our District and school mission is to ensure learning and success for each student by providing a quality education. We will accomplish this as students, parents, teachers, support staff, and administration work together for a common goal. Our commitment to each student is to provide standards-based instruction, which is implemented by our highly qualified teaching staff that works as a professional learning community. Close collaboration between all stakeholders will ensure that we maintain high expectations in a safe, nurturing environment.

Our school mascot, the eagle, symbolizes many things. Just as eagles freely soar through the skies our mascot is representative of our students' futures, which are limitless and full of possibilities. Each new day is a new opportunity to learn and soar to new academic heights. All students should be developing and refining their own life goals. We provide instruction via our guidance curriculum to support students as they plan for life after high school.

Education is the key to unlocking many opportunities in life. The staff of Buena Vista High School is committed to the academic, social, and emotional growth of each student. We look forward to a very productive and successful year!

PUSD is a Safe Haven

Paramount Unified School District is a Safe Haven for Students of All Backgrounds


In our diverse community, we recognize that many students and their families are struggling with questions, concerns and fears about the recent immigration enforcement actions taking place across the state. We work very hard to make our schools safe spaces for learning for every one of our students.  This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that a child’s race, religion, or immigration status do not create any barriers to their education.


On February 15, 2017, our Board of Education adopted a resolution indicating that our schools are a safe haven for all students and their families regardless of their race, religion, gender, immigration status, etc.  By passing this resolution, our district joins several others across the State of California that have already done so on the recommendation of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.


The Paramount Unified School District embraces the diversity of its students, parents, and community, and views this as something that makes us stronger.  This resolution is just one sign of our commitment to all of our students, parents, and community members.
