My son has attended this school since he was in kindergarten. He is now going into 2nd. The teachers are amazing and the PTO is extremely involved. It is a very small community feel. I am so happy with this school. My son loves his school!
We moved to MV from a different Kyrene school. This school has high parental involvement and excellent teachers. Also, has a great gifted program. My child is thriving and wants to go to school every day. Also, the PTO is very organized with many events and everyone is friendly and welcoming.
KMV is a wonderful school. The teachers are great. The parent involvement is very significant and the kids benefit greatly from all the activities and life taking place at the school. Extras such as the buddy sytem where younger student are paired with older students are also great. A great school I would recommend to anyone.
Our son enrolled at Monte Vista for first grade after attending another Kyrene district school for kindergarten, and we were just a bit concerned about the whole 'new school' thing. Our son's teacher has made all the difference. She welcomed him into her classroom and made him feel a part of things from Day 1--she's an amazing, dedicated professional. The school overall is welcoming, and parents are indeed very involved. We highly recommend this public school.
This is a terrific school. Small class size, great teachers, lots of activities, high standards or learning and very involved parents. We now have moved and I definitely gave serious thought to keeping my child at the school despite the additional hour daily commute time it would add.
Kyrene Monte Vista is a wonderful school. I have two children there for the last 3 years. The teachers are great...both children are excelling and learning so fast...they love school! The principal, Dr. Shimkus, is also wonderful...caring, involved, and has made good, appropriate choices in running the school. PTO is great...many involved and caring parents, of course it never seems like enough though, does it? The volunteers in the classrooms are awesome. Each class has at least 1/3-1/2 of the parents volunteering regularly within the class or school activities. The school grounds are friendly, open, with many parents picking up and chatting and physically being around and involved with their children! I know of several families that have chosen this school to attend from outside the boundaries, taking advantage of its open enrollment...some coming in from Maricopa and even Avondale! This school is excelling and is a state ranked A+!
