Volcano Vista High School expects all students to 

SOAR - Safe - Organized - Achiever - Respectful.

When students SOAR, faculty and staff work to recognize, promote and reward these behaviors by giving students SOAR Points. Students will use their SOAR Points to redeem snacks, Hawk merchandise and other items in our Hawk SOAR Store (located in E120) during lunch. At the end of every 6 weeks students are entered into a raffle to win various prizes based on 0 office referrals and 85% attendance. Each semester, there is a grand-prize drawing from for all students who have 0 office referrals and 90% attendance during the semester.  A matrix is on page 20 & 21 that gives examples of what it looks like to SOAR at Volcano Vista High
