excellent administration, teachers and additional staff. The students are polite and respectful. I enjoy helping in the classrooms. Teachers and students always make me feel welcome and appreciated.
I just wanted to address the information earlier about sports being costly. We have a very low income, and my daughter is on the basketball team. The only cost for us (other than driving them to practice/games) was getting her some basketball shoes. There was an optional sweatshirt and pictures, but not required. Love this school. Also really appreciate the weekly emails (you can choose email or phone call) every week to remind you of all the upcoming events. Keeps me in touch, and all the info right at hand.
MVMS is a good school for academics, their sports programs could be much better, unfortunately they give coaching jobs to teachers and staff whether or not they have any experience with the sport. Not very competitive in my opinion. Have a problem with a teacher, don't look for any support from the administration, evidently teachers walk on water at this school!
I have 4 children that have attended Mt View. If we had not moved out of district this year I was ready to switch them to a different school next year. This makes me very sad because I really hoped Mt View was a better school. My children had lots of problems with bullying and the teachers gave their personal opinions frequently, revealing their little faith in the education and government systems our country has. The stress that the teachers are under shows in their teaching. I can't tell if the teachers are just stressed or if they just don't care. Dress code and intimate contact is fairly strict. Although I think the physical contact rules is a little too strict. If children reach out and are motivated enough to ask for help, depending on the teacher, they may or may not get the help they need. The teachers see the kids struggling but leave it up to the student to fix it. Then when it is too late they don't allow the student to walk the stage to graduate but the student does not get retained for bad grades! What is this? Poor grades mean no graduation but you still move forward? There is something seriously wrong with this. I stayed with the district for too long I'm afraid :(
