You expect there to be cliques and bullies at any school. What you don't expect is for the teachers to promote the cliques as well as let the bullies do as they wish without consequence. As past reviews have noted, the teachers don't promote a positive, encouraging learning environment. Instead, they punish and publicly ridicule students. The test scores are high, but the environment and quality of teaching is low. If it weren't for the children that go to daily tutoring 5+ days a week, the scores would be far lower.

I regret ever sending my children to Monte Vista. Although we had a couple of outstanding teachers, there are many that were cruel and verbally abusive. Adding to this problem was the intense bullying that seemed to go unattended to by the staff. Overall, this school does not promote a positive, emotionally safe learning environment for children.

There are some wonderful teachers at Monte Vista, but there are also some who have lost sight of why they are there: to teach and encourage children to become lifelong learners. Not to punish, demean, or ridicule. I have heard that there is a new principal coming this fall. Maybe there will be positive change to bring Monte Vista back to the amazing school is once was.

Hmm...in response to the last comment, my kids have excelled at Monte Vista, Rosemont and CV High School, without the help of any tutors. They really owe their success to the stellar teachers! Their learning experience at Monte Vista has been enriched by the Meet the Masters art program, Robotics and Orchestra. There are tons of opportunities for parents to get involved if they want to help.

The test scores are high here because of the highly tutored Korean children. They do not motivate just punish.

I believe you cannot find better, more caring teachers than the ones my children have had at Monte Vista. I have seen these teachers go above and beyond to meet the personal needs of my children. We have been to several schools and feel very supported here. I received a personal telephone call recently to discuss a matter about which my child's teacher was concerned. I was so grateful for this proactive attention. I am thrilled to have students in their daily care. Also, the parents seem very supportive and fund extra music and theater programs which other schools do not offer. Our family very carefully selected this particular school for the strength of the teaching staff. My children are receiving very nurturing care from greatly qualified teachers.

Principal, Susie Hoge is horrible!!!!! She should retire! not too sure why district continues to keep her, she is there to collect pays tub. She doesn't care for the kids. And school is constantly asking for donation one after another. Without the parents supports the school will not receive such a high scores on the test. Majority students gets private touring to receive such high stand scores. Additionally, there some good teachers, but most of them are spoil with gifts and they Riley on parents support when child is hurt during school hours, they have no explanations of why they were hurt. All could say is they were injured at recess. Bottom line principal doesn't care much and staffs adopts same behavior from her. .

Horrible! The principal is completely robotic and uninvolved, the staff is cold, and the lunch program is the worst I have ever seen, extremely gross and disguting food, and with it the kids get the lunch monitors screaming at them to eat, very appetizing!They do not care about the kids they care about the test scores. You get what you pay for in this area, cold hearts, closed minds and lots of judgement and " cliqueness".

We have been thrilled with the education offered to our children at Monte Vista. The teachers are truly dedicated to the art teaching children. My kids have loved the orchestra and band programs as well as the recorder class and choir programs. Gate has been excellent and the math club is a real treasure. The most amazing thing is the parental support from the community. We consider this school to be a blessing.

Monte Vista is just barely acceptable. I suppose it gets hits high scores from the test scores from the large percentage of highly motivated and privately tutored Korean students who attend here, but the school itself has not motivated our children. If your child is average the teachers check out. One of the third grade teachers told our daughter every week she was destined for failure. There is no arts and no music program.

We made a difficult decision to pull our kids out of Monte Vista. We didn't want to because we certainly pay tax dollars to support the school; but our children were not challenged. They were bogged down with slow learners and kids with behavior problems. The GATE program was of no use to us--not challenging enough. We sacrifice so our children can attend private school and they are both doing much better. We gave them two years for one child and three years for the other. I wish we hadn't waited so long to make the move, but we were trying to give the school a chance.

Monte Vista offers a well rounded education in a safe environment. The teachers strive for excellence and are committed to professional development to pass along to their students. The academics are challenging and include GATE and other after school programs. The leadership is involved and fair-minded. I have worked at a private school and I do not believe those students received a better education than what my children have received here at Monte Vista.

Monte Vista has a beautiful campus, caring parents that help in most all classrooms each day and a caring, sensitive and devoted staff and teachers that help each child to fulfill their educational dreams.

Monte vista is a wonderful school with the best teachers in this area.. I know this well as my older sister(53) , myself (47), my nephew (32), and now my daughter (11) have all attended.

What a fun place to learn! Monte Vista encourages students to be educated in the classroom with terrific teachers and by participating in extra curricular activites. Some of these are choir, orchestra, music theater, chess club, stacking club enabling other parts of the brain to be stimulated.

Monte Vista Elementary School offers great academics. Along with it, PTA s initiatives and close involvements in all other aspects of child development give excellent benefits to the students. Collectively, that is why Monte Vista is the best Elementary School out there.

In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
