Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

I've never seen such a group of committed professionals. Seriously. The corporate world could learn a lot from the way these teachers get things done.

Amount of homework: Disagree

I hate homework, so I'm the wrong one to ask. I will say this: if you, as a parent, have a problem with the amount of homework, the teachers will work with you. They are well-versed in current educational research and they have no problem discussing an adjustment in curriculum.


Develops character: Strongly agree

This school utilizes Playworks instructors to encourage playground fairness and conflict resolution, and it's incredible how these skills permeate the whole school.

This is a really wonderful community-based school with a very active PTA and a beautiful campus. The teachers are experienced and committed and the turnover is very low. There is a great STEAM (science, technology and art) program. The kids are sweet and it's a fun place to spend time. The current principal has done a tremendous amount to unify and encourage everyone at the school, teachers and students alike.

We have a wonderful school community - dedicated teachers and staff, eager students and committed parents. We also have a beautiful campus in the East Bay hills in the San Francisco Bay Area. Mira Vista is a true gem!

Mira Vista is a good neighborhood school with a caring and active PTA that strives to continue improving the school environment and activities, such as art, glee, STEM club, and 2 outdoor classrooms/gardens. Like any public school, it has had to deal with reduced budgets, but the PTA has been actively trying to make up for the difference by securing grants to continue improving programming. In addition to the view, one of the best things about the school is its diversity. Most of the students in my children's classes have more than one racial ancestry. So it's great to celebrate everyone's heritage and religion at the annual multicultural night, and things that could be problematic in other schools aren't really an issue. Mira Vista isn't perfect -- what school is? But the teachers and principal go above and beyond because they know they are supported by a caring community.

I like this school, because teachers and principal are very nice.Parents are friendly. Thanks to PTA members, school is going to have it's own soccer team.

I was a student here from Kindergarten to 6th grade and I loved every minute of it. It's rare to find schools like this with such diversity and teachers who genuinely care. Not to mention the gorgeous view! When I have kids, I will definitely send them here.
