Vargas is home to Student Success through Science (VS3), in which all learning is viewed through a scientific lens. Using science as a foundation, we foster students' natural curiosity; we encourage them to question, interpret data, base decisions on evidence, and develop intellectual independence.
Our highly skilled instructional team, state-of-the-art science learning lab, and network of local resources and community partnerships enable us to create projects and curriculum that are fully engaging for our diverse student population.
