I don't understand the comments about bullying! I have never seen anyone being bullied here at Mesa at all! Plus teachers never assign to much homework at all! All the teachers work with each other to make sure that there is never to much homework each night! I have never had more than one test a day, or more than one project due on the same day.I honestly think that these kids are lying to their parents, or are at the least great actors. We have anti-bullying assemblies really often, and ever kids that I know who you would think are bullying others, are extremely nice! I understand my geometry homework more than the poor ratings.
I am a new student at Mesa View; I transferred here for Seventh Grade. All I can say is that it is AWESOME! I really don't understand all of the reviews about bullying either. I haven't seen any of it. I already have a group of friends, and everyone is very kind and including. The teachers are great! They meet the standards, give a reasonable amount of HW, and offer help when needed. They are also very funny and make me want to stay at school longer! I am even excited to go to school each morning; forget about sleeping in!! What can I say? I am very satisfied with Mesa View, and I felt welcome from the very start.
I actually don't know why everybody's complaining about bullying at this school. I have transferred from the Westminster School District into Mesa View for 7th grade. I haven't seen any form of bullying at this school and I doubt I ever will. All the students here seem friendly and nice. Maybe there are a few students that don't obey rules and swear but every school has them! The GATE teachers are wonderful, being funny yet still getting the lessons through. Exploratory Wheel classes seem awesome too! I think this school is wonderful overall. Sure you get a lot of homework but it's not too much to manage. Bullies and mean kids come and go. A new wave of students come in and an old wave of students go out every year. You can't expect the bullies to stay back. New year= New students.
AS A PARENT I HAVE WATCHED MY SON COME HOME IN TEARS FROM THE BULLING AT THIS SCHOOL. AFFRAID TO GO ON BUS AND PE HE WOULD RATHER BE IN THE OFFICE SO HE DOESNT GET A BALL AT HIS HEAD, AND THE TEACHER FOR SOME REASON NEVER SEES IT. MY SON HAS SPENT MORE TIME IN THE OFFICE TO AVOID BULLING THAN IN THE CLASS ROOM AND IS CURRENTLY GETTING ALL F'S. THANKS MESA VIEW
I am utterly shocked! How did this school get so many stars?! The teachers are more concerned about sending tons of homework everyday rather than help my son understand his work! He sometimes gets so much homework, he has to work from the minute he gets home to bed time and is rarely ever able to go outside to play with friends before it gets dark. I keep contacting the teachers, trying to find someway to reduce his homework or at least send him home understanding what to do, but it's as if they really don't care! I have even tried to talk to the administration about this but they seem to either ignore my phone calls or they have things that are "more important" to do than ensure the success of my son! Do Not Send Your Child to this school! If I would have known there are much better schools in the area, I would have never gone to this "great" school in the first place.
This school has a serious problem with bullying! The principal is either naive or doesn't care. It's a shame because their GATE program is very good. Students are afraid to report bullies because repercussions.
This school does nothing to help out with the bullying... I'm so shocked that it has more than 3 stars! Do you people not care about the racism in this school? ITS HORRIBLE my brother is always getting teased by "white" kids. They say the most offensive things to him... and the staff does nothing to help him...
Regarding the bullying, it really helped when they separated the 6th graders from the 7th and 8th graders. My daughter attended all those years and was really pushed around in the snack line by the older kids. But the next yea they changed the schedules so the older students do not cross paths with the younger ones. The school does try to address bullying issues.
I absolutely love Mesa View! From the earlier reviews, some people say that Mesa View staff doesn't deal with bullying. We definitely do! we have many assemblies and talks about bullying and cheating. Mesa View means so much and their Exploratory Wheel has great classes. ASB and Performing Arts are extremely wonderful as well as the teachers and the principal. GATE is challenging yet fun and I advise you, if you live near the Ocean view school district, go to Mesa View!
This is a great academic school. The environment is very clean and friendly. The classes are are very fun, yet educational.
This school doesn't deal with or take bullying seriously, its as if the principle and teachers are afraid of the students and ignore the issues.
Not a good school, my son is constantly harassed both physically and verbally and nothing is ever done about it. I have gone to the office on numerous occasions, given them the names of the kids who are responsible and i never see a change. In the end my son is the one who is punished, when he has done nothing wrong but try to protect himself and stay out of the way.
Mesa view is pretty cool, the teachers are good, all but the old ones. the old ones are always grumpy though. and i don't really understand why there are a few people complaining about other kids who swear and use inappropriate language and speech; it's going to happen anywhere and everywhere, there's no way to avoid it. Mesa View is a great school.
We are very impressed so far with Mesa View School. My daughter is very happy and the teachers seem to do an awesome job!
Mesa View is a great school! The staff all the way from the principal down are so dedicated to the students. They go out of their way to help each one with anything.The teachers all seem top really enjoy teaching the students and go out of their way to make Mesa View a the best school it can be.
I currently go to Mesa, and overall, it's a good school. I think they focus too much on the 'popular kids'. These are the students who get first pick on evrything, from staying in at break to help teachers, to getting awards. I'm in the gate program, have only 1 B, rest A's, but I rarely get oppurtunities to help out.
Mesa View Middle School is a great school with Great education programs. The teachers are just so nice. And an OUTSTANDING principle ( Mrs.Olsen ) just a great school i recommend it for everyone ! GO EAGLES !
It is an awesome school that has fantastic teachers. I am currently in GATE and it offers a great amount of education
Mesa is a great place for your child. The GATE program is challenging while allowing time for extra curricular activities. The administration sets high expectations and requires the students to follow them. Someone had sour grapes if they don't recognize the gem of a principal we have! I wouldn't send my child anywhere else in Huntington Beach. Tammy Crowder, MA Education, parent
