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 love this school it is so wonderful all the teachers are wonderful wonderful pricipal and assistant principal
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!
I am a student here and I love it. The teachers are great and they do the best they can to help you achieve your goals. The Electives are great and so is the PE program.
i feel that Monte Vista is a good school with some problems i went there for 6-7th grade and i liked it. some of the kids there arnt the nicest or the smartest but they try. i believe that Monte Vista gets judged a lot because of rumors.
Monte Vista is a dynamic school, responding to the needs of students in new and creative ways.
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 great middle school.from experience i know this.Most of the kids there a welcoming and great influences, while like all other schools have kids who might be a bad influences.I went to Monte vista in 6th grade and i loved it. and would love to go back
monte vista is a bad school the students that go there are not very acceptable if you dont now my son has friends that smoke and i dont want my child to be hanging around bad influences so i do not recomend monte vista and i believe that mrs.pfeffier is too hard on students that are trying so thank you
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.
I think the school is really great! Most of the teachers are really funny! The dances are really fun there the best. They have really cool extra activities, like ASB, Jr. optomist club, the dance team basketball team and much more! Its such a great school I would rate it a perfect ten!
