What is a portfolio?

An organized presentation of an individual’s education, work samples, achievements and skills.

Why a portfolio?

As you come to the close of your high school career, it is important that you compile evidence of your learning and reflect on your educational journey.  Your portfolio will serve this purpose. In addition, you will present your portfolio to a panel of Vista staff members, community members, and alumni. The panel will then make the final recommendation for your graduation based on various elements of your senior portfolio presentation. Your presentation should be around 20 minutes with your video, allow 10 minutes for questions and feedback.
