I just wanted to address the information earlier about sports being costly. We have a very low income, and my daughter is on the basketball team. The only cost for us (other than driving them to practice/games) was getting her some basketball shoes. There was an optional sweatshirt and pictures, but not required. Love this school. Also really appreciate the weekly emails (you can choose email or phone call) every week to remind you of all the upcoming events. Keeps me in touch, and all the info right at hand.

MVMS is a good school for academics, their sports programs could be much better, unfortunately they give coaching jobs to teachers and staff whether or not they have any experience with the sport. Not very competitive in my opinion. Have a problem with a teacher, don't look for any support from the administration, evidently teachers walk on water at this school!

If your child is pretty close to perfect you will love this school, but If your child has challenges of any kind choose a larger school. MVMS does not have adequate staffing or programs to help students who have problems. There are exceptions, but most teachers are fine with letting the less than perfect child flounder.

I have 4 children that have attended Mt View. If we had not moved out of district this year I was ready to switch them to a different school next year. This makes me very sad because I really hoped Mt View was a better school. My children had lots of problems with bullying and the teachers gave their personal opinions frequently, revealing their little faith in the education and government systems our country has. The stress that the teachers are under shows in their teaching. I can't tell if the teachers are just stressed or if they just don't care. Dress code and intimate contact is fairly strict. Although I think the physical contact rules is a little too strict. If children reach out and are motivated enough to ask for help, depending on the teacher, they may or may not get the help they need. The teachers see the kids struggling but leave it up to the student to fix it. Then when it is too late they don't allow the student to walk the stage to graduate but the student does not get retained for bad grades! What is this? Poor grades mean no graduation but you still move forward? There is something seriously wrong with this. I stayed with the district for too long I'm afraid :(

From the point of view of a recently graduated student, I would recommend this school to parents with children who are confident in their social skills. Academics here were above average, teachers were always very helpful and responsive on a personal level with all students. The motto at MVMS is "no limits, no excuses" and that is very much the truth. The principal is amazing and always readily available to set up a conference with parents,students, and teachers to help with any problems. Students are challenged with their studies but can also receive help if they find themselves struggling with a subject. Student leadership (LINK crew) also has role with tutoring all grades. Overall this school provides most everyone with a positive experience all around and help students grow both academically and socially.

My daughter is in the seventh grade this year. She is behing in quite a few classes. The teachers do not stress the importance of responsibilty, they give a child a modified grade if they are failing. What does that teach them? They can turn in late assignments, re-take failed tests. This to me does not teach kids anything..except for it is okay to fail! They do not offer extra help and with a child who is struggeling this is very frustrating. Teachers do not stay in contact with the parents. However the Aeries is a huge plus, that I love. This is the only way to keep track of our childs grades and assignments. I am disappointed at this school.

There is only one concern with this school and that is lack of books for every grade and every student so they may bring their books home to study. I have always gotten a quick response and solution to any problems that may arise.

My son has been attending Mtn View for two year snow. This school is excellent! If parents became more involved in their children's lives, their children would have a better performance level. It is the parents responsibility. I highly recommend this school.

My oldest daughter attended Mountain View it's first year, 2001, as an 8th grader. Now, my second daughter is attending as a 6th grader. Mountain View does take discipline seriously, and are considered strict as far as dress code, etc. I consider that a good thing, and I don't think they go overboard. As far as the teaching goes, I have found the teachers to be very active and involved. Conferences are this week, newsletters continuously come home and we are encouraged to follow our children's progress online for each class. My daughter likes all of her teachers and is getting all A's and B's. She is in the GATE program (gifted and talented education) and they recently took a field trip to Ashland Oregon to see a Shakespeare play.

I have two children that have attended MVMS. Both children were very involved with student government, sports, and their peer helper program and college options program. They have both been on the honor roll all three years and have had wonderful teachers.

My oldes child went to this school, we thought the teachers were not involved and could care less about teaching, my son is going into junior high and we are looking at another school for him. I wouldn't recommend this school.

One of my kids went to mountain view. Mountain view is horible the teachers are not caring for the children. All they care about is their weekly check. They treat the kid like there in prison.
