Pursuing Victory With Honor
It is an honor to welcome you to Vista High School, home of the Panthers. Vista High School athletic program has a rich tradition of commitment to excellence in academics and athletics. Our scholar-athletes are dedicated to demonstrating good sportsmanship, while displaying the six pillars of characters (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, citizenship, caring, and fairness.) both on and off the playing field. Vista High teachers, coaches, and athletes understand that participating in our athletic program is a privilege.
As Panthers, we give our best effort in all that we do. We strive to bring pride and respect to our programs, teams, teammates, and our school. We win with honor, and lose with character. Our students are our priority, VHS Athletics Department makes each decision keeping the best interest of our students on and off the field.
We invite all of our parents to join our Athletics Booster Club, which is our support to our athletic programs. Without our Booster support we could not provide our students with the best athletic programs they deserve.
