    monta vista is a wonderful school. I went there and had a great time and a great education. overall it is a wonderful school.

    We were really displeased with Monte Vista. When we had a problem with our child being physically and verbally picked on there was no action. The principal said it was our child's responsibility to take care of it. The principal wouldn't acknowledge that there was any problem and the teachers have no power to handle a problem.

    We moved to RP in October of 2006. Our daughter is a special needs child and the school has made sure that she has everything she needs to be successful including providing a dedicated tutor. They were very quick to provide all the necessary testing for placement. The kids in her class have also been incredible and provide her with a great deal of support. If this were a private school I would tell everyone I know to take their children there.

    Monte Vista has been great for my kids. They are very structured and don't let anyone fall behind. We have four children that have gone there since kindergarten. All of them have developed a high self esteem and have made great friends. The parent involvement is great. Our kids have gotten what it takes to excel in academics for the future from Monte Vista.

    It's doesn't feel like a 'child friendly' school. There are a lot of negative consequences instead of positive praising. There is a fair amount of parent involvement which keeps the school afloat. We have not really been happy with Monte Vista. Given it's demographics etc. we expected more. The school's leadership is lacking in new ideas. It could really use an infusion of new teaching styles and ideas.
