New Vistas Staff

David Plesac

Welcome from our principal.

I am incredibly excited by this opportunity to build on the strong culture of community, accountability, professionalism, success, and service which is embedded in everything we do here at NEO and New Vistas High School.

A 20+ year veteran as a servant leader in education, my commitment to grow this school and the options for students of all ages and from all regional backgrounds and experiences will serve as my north star.   The collective goal here at Nw Vistas  goal is to provide welcoming and supportive learning environment, a place where students can thrive, succeed and be heard.

I eagerly anticipate the many great stories of student success that will pour forth from New Vistas High School.
