Mountain View High School 5

My youngest daughter graduated last June from MVHS and I can't say enough good things about this school. Teachers are great -- especially the History and English faculty. They have an absolutely amazing performing arts program. My kids were in band and I really appreciated all that they learned besides music from the program -- leadership, dedication, and at times, conflict management. Classes were challenging and appropriately leveled. Both kids feel that they were well prepared for their college coursework. And finally, socially, the kids at MVHS are pretty good kids. No crazy drug issues or anything like that!

I moved into the area four years ago and have been so impressed and delighted with Mountain View High. My kids have thrived - meeting great friends, having terrific, attentive teachers, and a wealth of extra-curricular clubs, teams and programs.

My three kids thrived at Mountain View High! We were so fortunate to have this amazing school in our backyard! Go Spartans!

Excellent and caring teachers. Strong academics - plenty of AP and Honors classes to keep kids challenged. Nice campus. A positive student environment. Very friendly and open. Hard for kids not to feel supported. I have a junior and freshmen and they are both really happy at MVHS.

My daughter is a sophmore this year and she has so much homework but it is fantastic because she is learning so much. She is learning so much more than I did at Los Altos in the 80's. She tried so hard to get the best grades. It really has changed. It isn't all about cute boys and Candies wedge shoes anymore. LOL.

The Vocal music department is the greatest. The teacher is innovative and very caring. The Madrigals are rated among the country's best, by hard work and dedication. Students are highly encouraged to further their education, and contribute to society.

Great school. Challenging curriculum (though it's sort of two tracks only -- regular classes can be boring for bright kids, but the Honors and AP alternatives are really hard. The Honors courses (esp. in Science) are really using the AP texts. A lot of parents would like something in between. But, that's my only criticism. Amazing faculty, very caring and supportive, always respond to emails, always looking out for the kids. Great extracurriculars, wonderful performing arts program including all instrumentals, marching band, 3 choirs, dance, drama. Beautiful campus.

Just graduated. It was an amazing experience to be part of MVHS. The staff is caring and helpful; the curriculum is challenging; the resources are bountiful. I'd say MV is a 10! I'm on my way to East coast college and feel well prepared.
