My son is smart so they challenge him by putting him in upper grade classes. This helps.my son to be more comfortable in his learning environment. Principal is awesome.

Ok so having just moved to the city of Ontario I wanted to find a school equally or greater in the academic level then my daughters last school. Mountain View topped the highest in the area. Elderberry school is literally at the end of my block and I make the 15-20 minute drive to and from 3 times a day just to take my girls there. The Principal and teachers are extremely nice and so very helpful. My girls are staying challenged and I love how the school is so small. They get all the attention needed! This school ROCKS!!!

I love this school! I went here k-5 and now my 2 boys go here. I love the environment, it is very welcoming. Parents are always welcomed to help out and are encouraged to be involved. The teachers and staff are amazing! I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else! The principle is great too, he knows the kids by name and is very involved.

I have the honor of teaching at Mountain View School. Our staff is filled with very dedicated teachers, support staff, and of course our Principal. Our incredible PTA works harder than any I've seen and the parents are an important part of the supportive atmosphere in our school. We can't help but be successful with all of us focusing on the achievement of our kids. I am very, very lucky to go to work each day loving what I do. Thank you parents, your kids are amazing!

My son is finishing his second year at this school (on a transfer) and it has been, by far the best school he has ever attended. Mrs. Thopmson is excellent! Her support, dedication, and encouragement have helped my son in so many ways. The principal and staff are also very friendly and approachable. Thank you Mountain View for a great school year!

I love this school! It has the private school feel with only 19 or less students per class. I feel safe and most important my kids feel safe. They have a no bully policy that's awesome!

I work for the San Bernardino County Superintend of Schools teaching an ED class (Special Education) our class is located in the Mountain View Elementary School. We are not part of the Mountain View School District, however the school does make our very special class welcome. My program has been located there for 6 years. The school is a very warm and caring school. All students are accepted. My own kids have attended the Mountain View School for the past 4 years. My son is currently in the 3rd grade. Each year he learn a lot and the teachers work with all parents. There is a lot of welcomed parent evolvement.

I am so happy with this school. The staff and teachers really care about the kids. I actually transfer my kids into this school. I wouldn't want them to go anywhere else. The teachers work hard teaching. The PTA is very involved in everything. Parents are involved. Many walk with their kids to and from school every day. There are field trips for every grade, 2-3 major assemblies a year, family-oriented open house in spring, and a lot of good-behavior reward programs. The school as a whole builds better kids.

About the tests


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.
