Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

If you are looking for a place that can baby sitter your child while you're working well Monte Vista Elementary School it's the great place! Teachers with no patience at all! Teachers yell at students! Teachers texting or using Face book while they're teaching! Teachers bullying students and teaching the kids bullying! The principal is just flirting with girls PTA is Horrible!

I have not had good experiences with teachers. My son's kindergarten teacher was short tempered and irritable all the time, not to mention late almost every day. His first grade teacher is better but still has very little time to communicate with me or deal with issues. I look forward to finding a better school with teachers that are more creative, communicative and caring.

My child has attended this school since it opened a couple of years ago. The teachers at every grade level are truly competent, experienced and caring. Monte Vista Elementary has quickly become a top choice for elementary education on the Monterey Peninsula. A revamped, nutritious lunch program was recently implemented that offers healthy lunch options and has been well received. One unfortunate concern was the elimination of the 5th grade science camp due to a claim of decreased funding which resulted in a couple of mediocre "science" field trips. Too bad as our nation has fallen far behind globally. It would also be nice if the lower playground could get the right lines painted on the basketball court which would seem to be an easy fix but has yet to be done. Ultimately I am very confident that my child is receiving a quality education. Go Blue Jays!
