Mountain View Elementary School 5

We moved back to the area in 2007, and started our oldest in kindergarten at Mountain View - last year he graduated and his siblings now attend. Love this school - great environment for kids if you want them to learn, very good teachers, very supportive/active PTA and parents, who contribute a lot of time and money, too, (there are a lot of well-off families that can afford it,, clearly). It's as good as a public school can be in California in light of the constraints of bureaucracy, teaching mandates, and common core adoption.

I had three children in this school The Principal Mr. Woods treated my kids horribly. They were bullied teased and one was recommended for special education when she tested out normal. They just want your money. The kids there are cruel. The staff there don't care about your children at all. My son was labeled there and treated so cruely he would come home crying all the time. I would never recommend this school to anyone unless you want your child scared for life like mine.

The entire staff, the community of families, the spirit of the children make Mountain View a school that exceeds expectation in education.

We started our 2nd and 4th grader at Mountain View in Fall 2008. I can't say enough good things about the families and how welcoming they have been. There is a significant amount of parent involvement. We have had a great experience with a seasoned teacher and also have a young energetic teacher just in her 3rd year and both have been good for our kids. There are great specialists in science, technology, art, and music. These are paid for through parent donations to a fundraising campaign called the MAGIC program. Well worht the investment when CA education budget continues to be uncertain.

The school has great teachers and parent involvement. The principal does not communicate well with parents. It's a good thing Mountain View has good teachers.

The school is great. The teachers care about their students and are wonderful. The principal is involved with some students but is pompous with his dealings with some of the parents. The school has great parent involvement.

This school has excellent science and math programs. In 2007, the school won the County Math Bowl - quite an achievement considering the number of schools included. This school also has significant parental involvement and support - both financially and in man-hours (classes & events). The school also has a developed a series of programs to supplement core curricula - music, art, sports, computer, science, which is funded through the PTA and an annual fundraising drive targeted to parents of students at the school. The school is wonderful, the parents and teachers are great - it is just an incredible environment.
