This is a great school. I am a student here and it will be the best memories I will ever have. And it is better than Los colinas because we have a block schedule so it will be less stressful. And the teachers are so helpful when u don't understand something.

We live in another District but had to move my kids due to problems at their school that the Principal could not fix. We found Monte Vista and my kids had a great year. They met some new nice friends and did very well academically. The Principal is great and so are all the staff. The school Counselor is amazing! We are looking forward to another great school year.

My child just finished 8th grade at Monte Vista. He had a great time the three years he was there. We never had any problems with other students and it was easy for me to contact all of the teachers.

Students at this school should be doing better. Are they getting the education they deserve? Similar schools seem to be doing a better job.

Monte Vista, while not perfect, is an extraordinary school. Almost all of the teachers want to help and guide you to a good future. The programs there are amazing, and some, like the ASB and the Art program, really let the students shine through and show their full potential. I would recommend it to anyone looking for possible options in education.

Monte Vista is a great middle school, with a great staff. I remember my parents wanted to send me to a private school. Without some convincing from friends, I would have probably gone to one, but I'm really happy I didn't. Monte Vista has made me the person who I am today. Parents know that a child's teen years are the most important ones, teens begin to think about what they want to do with their lives, what kind of friends they want to have, and who they really are. They have engaging electives to suit ones interests. Their Principal and especially Vice Principal are extraordinary. The connection between administration and teachers is impeccable. All their teachers are great role models that have an impact on the students' lives. Monte Vista has an exceptional "Renaissance" program, that awards students with academic excellence. The ASB, organizes fantastic activities, dances, and fundraisers. This school also offers extra help for 8th grade students struggling in Algebra. The campus is very beautiful, and has a positive influence on students. This school's vision of students enjoying being together, while preparing themselves for the future is what makes this school great.

I'm a student here, the teachers are so friendly, the lockers aren't super clean and sanitary, but a majority of them are. I love this school and am looking forward to the next school year!

Monte Vista used to be a great school but it seems as though it is losing direction and momentum. Maybe one day this once wonderful school will regain what has been lost.

Monte Vista is a wonderful school with teacher that care about the success of their student and counselors that help tremendously during events and that help when a student is in need. I highly recommend sending your child here. The kids here are HIGHLY motivated and focused. Last year, we got about 20 new excerise bikes and alot of other equipment for physical education use. You can also use it after school.

I Feel Monte Vista is not a great school. Most of the teachers do not want to go out of their way to help students who really need it. Unless your child is a 4.0 student , they want nothing to do with you. They need to get some new teachers in there that have a new way of teaching that gets kids motivated and stay focused.

I love all the opportunities that MV brings up. I have many new friends and I love the sports and clubs that are here.There are so many different kinds of people here, everywhere I look I see someone I haven't met. All my teachers are so much fun and I have really boosted my grades.

Wonderful principal, some good teachers and some that need to retire; it's never appropriate for teachers to speak disrespectfully to students, and that is a common occurrence at Monte Vista. They need to slow down and realize they should be setting a better example.
