We are very lucky to have Monte Vista as our K-8 neighborhood school! The district offers free all-day Kindergarten and the Junior Ambassador Program, in which students can travel abroad. We are looking forward to the new school building (same location) which will be ready for the 2015-16 school year. The plans/design look fabulous and will compliment the surrounding mid-century homes.

The only thing positive about the schools is the teachers. They try their best to help our students achieve. The principals, particulary Nancy Uxa and Steve Wolf at Gateway elementary are horrible! They do not address any concerns you have. I have seen them be mean to teachers by yelling at them and telling them they aren't doing a good job. To me its sad because I know the teachers try hard. I know some teachers had like 35 students in their classes and that's not right. That's too many kids for 1 person to handle. I complained a couple of times and nobody ever did anything so I pulled my student out of that school and I will never let her go back. They are rude and not very nice.

For children with special needs this school falls far below anything I've ever experienced. How can a student be eager to learn to read when the reading teachers do not grade the students their HR teacher gives them the grade so they will get an 'F'. The same holds true for writing the student will get an 'F' automatically!!! This is not fair for the child. Even his HR teacher agreed with me these kids don't stand a chance... In addition to that, the students take the same reading test as the rest of the class and they miss most of the instruction because they are in another class room with the reading teacher. My son will NOT be attending school next year ! I'm very unhappy.

I love this school. There a re such great things about it.Im especially impressed about the high technology there. It is very updated. it is also a very safe enviromnent. Parents are very involved here. There a re alot of parent groups and conferences every 2 quarters to talk about your childs work. The teachers and the classroms are nice too. There is no trash or other things laying in the ground. the extarcurricular programs are great too. theres a great variety.
