    Mountain View is a great school. The administration teachers and counselors are knowledgeable professional and caring. Students feel safe cared for and are learning. Test scores don't always reflect the real achievement or ability of students. Mt. View actually has a large population of learning support students because parent's of students with learning disabilities move here because of the excellent special education department. It's a great school for any student of any ability level.

    I love Mountain View. Not for its acedimcs or extracurricular activities but beacuse of the friendships I've made in my 6 years of attendance here. I am in 8th grade and i do feel that the only thing that makes me want to go here is my friends. I am involed in extracurricular activities and acedemics is one of my stenghts. This is mainly because I've been fortunate enough to have mostly great teachers. I just think my school should think a little bit more 'out side the box'. Not that this Isn't a great school to send your kids(you'll always feel safe and welcome here) but if you plan on living a city life as a business man or women then u might want to rethink moutian view as an option for your childs school.
