Students On Social Awareness

Here at Vista Peak, our core is our students. We share in the successes and accomplishments of each and every one of them. We also appreciate their willingness to open up and share with us their feelings, thoughts and beliefs on a different level. Here are just a few students stories on current topics of our world today. 

Gender Studies focused on Privilege and Oppression during their intersectional feminism unit. These students explored their oppression being genderqueer and disabled while another wrote about ways in which we all might have subconscious racial bias.
