What is VISTAS High School?

The Vistas High School program is a school of choice that provides an opportunity for students to graduate who might be struggling in the traditional school setting. The Vistas program provides a small and nurturing environment which aims to meet all the needs of struggling students. These students have to apply through their counselor and are chosen after they have been interviewed by Vistas personnel. All four high schools submit applications and there are only 185 students who qualify for the program. Click here to learn more about VISTAS High School.

What is 2nd Chance?

2nd Chance initially began as an online option that aimed to allow dropouts and 5th year seniors the opportunity to complete required classes for graduation. The program has evolved to accommodate first time seniors who need immediate help. The graduation adviser, along with the counselors make a recommendation for the 2nd Chance program. This is an online option aligned with the TEKS. It provides students with a flexible class schedule and an opportunity to move along at the student’s pace.

There are several requirements that need to be met by the students in order to qualify for the program:
  • Current Seniors - must graduate on highest plan and need 5 credits or fewer to graduate (26 Credits)
  • All other students need 5 credits or fewer to graduate (22 Credits)
  • Live in Klein ISD attendance zone
