Q: Why isn’t there enough onsite parking for all Vista juniors & seniors who want to drive?
A: Vista was built at a time and in a location where there was little available land large enough to accommodate a new high school. The number of parking spaces was allocated based on the planned enrollment for Vista and needs at that time.
Additionally, at the time the school was built, students could still legally carpool. Laws have changed and more students are driving themselves, though parents can provide permission for siblings to carpool.
Currently, priority for parking permits is given to Vista seniors. Remaining parking permits are available to juniors through a lottery. There are 404 student parking spaces and an additional 10 parking spaces for students with disabilities.
