Principal's Message

Welcome to Loma Vista Elementary School, where everyone has a spot!

At Loma Vista Elementary, we deliver a holistic approach to comprehensive education.  We accomplish this by fostering a culture of inclusion, which inspires students at a multi-dimensional level, harnessing academic, artistic, ecological, humanitarian, and technological fields of study for authentic student engagement.  Our teachers provide context-rich learning opportunities that engage students based on individual interests and mentor our young scholars to acquire critical skills, while developing students’ confidence and a passion for learning.

Hello, my name is Michael Wise, and I serve as Principal of Loma Vista Elementary.  Here at Loma Vista all faculty and staff take great pride in serving our students, staff, families, and community. We have a very active and supportive parent community and we regularly partner with our PTA, our neighbors, and the Ventura Mid-Town Council and the Surfrider Foundation in support of our students, to provide exceptional facilities, outdoor education, and extracurricular educational experiences.

At Loma Vista our faculty and staff are passionate about making a difference in the lives of our students. Our student don’t simply learn here, they thrive here!  Each day we are committed to intentionally build and promote our students’ sense of belonging, reinforce the importance of good character and a strong work ethic, promote authentic engagement in academic pursuits through our classroom lesson variety, and engage students beyond the bell in interest driven extracurricular activities.

Our school has been serving students since 1952, and we pride ourselves on being a generationally attended school.  Many of our current parents were student here once themselves, and in a few cases their grandparents before them!  Our roots run deep and we continue to draw the strength and support from our community, helping Loma Vista continue to flourish.  

Great things are happening here, and we want to welcome you to Loma Vista!  If you cannot find what you are looking for here on our website, give our front office a call.  We are happy to answer your questions.
