About Volcano Vista High School

Volcano Vista High School, Albuquerque Public Schools’ twelfth comprehensive high school, was established in 2007, opening its doors to only the Freshman class who would become the first graduating class 2011!  Today, with an enrollment of nearly 2,300 students, it is one of the largest APS high schools, located on Albuquerque’s far west mesa.  The Home of the Hawks – specifically the Redtail Hawk – proudly show their school spirit in their colors black, white and platinum!

Volcano Vista was so named because of their spectacular view of the Three Sisters volcanoes on the mesa just to the west of the school (part of the Petroglyph National Monument).  The volcanoes are regarded as a living reminder of a cultural heritage based on powerful spiritual ties to the Earth.  The volcano theme is prevalent through the school.  Our general sessions will be in the Ring of Fire Gymnasium; Advisor Hospitality is in The Caldera; and other facilities that we will occupy during the conference are named after volcanoes!  

The design of VVHS was recognized by Architectural Digest as one of the “most beautiful public high schools” in America—in addition to receiving local architectural awards!
