Alternative Education Options

Monte Vista Independent Study is an alternate education option for students in grades 7-12. This educational option is a mutually voluntary agreement within the NMUSD attendance area to provide for students whose educational needs are met in an independent study format. Independent study is designed to respond to the student’s unique needs, interests, and abilities. Students who participate in independent study have the same course and graduation requirements as comprehensive Newport-Mesa schools. Courses in independent study are of the same standards and rigor as the in-person equivalent. Visit to learn more.
