    I love this school! The staff is great! Mrs. Perez and Ms. Figueroa are involved in numerous activities to support the students. The music program is a great opportunity for my child.

    Mrs. Perez is the best principal! She has worked with me and my emotionaly disturbed son on a personal level. Thank you Mrs. Reinhagen for picking a good principal.

    This school has great teachers and wonderful programs for afterschool and summer. We really love it. The only reason the test scores are low is because alot of the students are migrant.

    The principal at that school Mrs Reinhagen is wonderful and very involve. She promotes the arts and music at her school. In kindergarten children can opt to learn the violin. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

    This school by far has the most caring and involved staff and administration of any elementary school I have had the pleasure of working with. It is in my opinion certainly the best k-6 school in the area.

    I think that this is an excellent school. Two of my children attend this school 1st and 6th. Staff is very caring and an awesome principal. If I had a choice of any school for my children it most difinately would be Mt. Vista. Thanks and keep up the great work. - Monica Imperial
