It was opened to relieve continuing enrollment growth at Casa Grande Union High School, which had swelled to over 3,300 students and become Arizona's largest single-campus high school during the mid-2000s as the town it served exploded in population. Ground was broken in 2007 on the 259,000 square feet (24,100 m2) of space on the 60-acre (24 ha) campus. The school has a capacity of 1,875 students, a capacity it is nearing as of 2012. At the start of the 2011 school year, Vista Grande had an estimated 2,000 students enrolled and is continuing to expand. Vista Grande's primary sport is football, by having the most support in means of staff and students. In 2010, the Spartans' varsity football team won the Arizona state independent championship over Campo Verde High School. Vista Grande is now part of Arizona's football Division III and can now compete for an actual state title. In 2012, Vista Grande High School gained media attention when authorities permitted a private prison company, Corrections Corporation of America, to conduct a drug sweep in concert with local law enforcement.
