My school has done a very good job in supporting my learning disabled sons. All three of my sons (now 8th, 7th and 4th grades) have gone through Mountain View. My 4th grader is still there. It has been challenging and sometimes over-whelming to have 3 LD kids. The school was quick to help me identify my boys' needs and then lay out a plan to help them. They were given IEPs. The learning specialist that they all were assigned to is out of this world amazing. She has worked hard to educate herself about dyslexia and how she can serve the students that have it. My boys have always known that she cares about them and wants them to be successful. When we have thought about moving out of town, I have always decided that we could not pull the boys from our school or her care. Generally, the whole school, including classroom teachers, are careful to provide the students with necessary help. Usually, they go above and beyond that by looking for new and personal ways to help each one. Great school...really great learning specialist!
Class sizes are larger then I would like 25+ and the new SBG system is definitely taking some getting used to but I get the reasoning behind it and the school seems to want parents to learn about it and has offered many opportunities to do so. I see behavioral issues this year in many kids but I don't know if that has anything to do with a change in administration (new principal) so maybe she needs to step up and put down an iron fist? Overall I like the school, the teachers and the way things are run. I have a 3rd grader and 1st grader.
Our new principle has come into our community with ease. She has energized the teachers, staff and parents. The schools focused and well balanced, as well as cheerful and has created a great learning environment, My son started in kindergarten, now in 1st grade He has Mrs, Campbell, She has been amazing with the students. There reading is excellent. She has a unique way of making math and science fun, my son Loves school, and is eager to keep learning. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who wants a well rounded education for their children. Brandy Hutchison
Upon researching other schools, public and charter, I am finding that my children will be academically and socially behind moving elsewhere in the district and honestly the state. I agree with one of the previous raters who said that the staff gets too involved in home life and personal affairs of the kids. Take an interest so that you are a good teacher. The staff needs to mind their own business when it isn't detrimental to their classroom or stated laws. I am finding it very difficult to continue attending due to these issues and worse yet enroll my last one. I will be changing next school year.
my kids have went here for 3 years,this school has went downhill year by year.alot of the staff and teachers dont like like they want to be there,the class sizes are bigger not alot of help for kids who need special help.both the principal and vice principal dont seem like they care at all.school could be a lot better
Teachers - Fantastic! Faculty- Excellent! We had moved out to Colorado from the UK and have been impressed with Mountain View in every way. The teachers really care and are fantastic at getting the kids excited about what they are learning. Our son has really adjusted to life out here and has excelled at Mountain View.
I have to say I love this school. I have a special needs child, they've gone out of their way to keep me involved and informed. My daughter has absolutely thrived in this school. She's been attending for 2.5 years now and we're still amazed at how her learning and skills grow by leaps and bounds. All the teachers and staff we've come into contact with have been wonderful.
The school does not promote parent involvement and promotes mediocrity. They do not provide programs for children that excel nor do they have the capacity to provide for children with special needs. The school culture has significantly degraded over the last 4 years.
This school is going downhill fast with the new principal. All of the attention is spent on the new classroom addition, and not on the students. There has been a dramatic increase in the teacher turnover with the new principal. Parents of both below average students and above average students are both complaining that some of the teachers aren't spending enough time with the kids. Numerous parents with kids at the school are looking for new schools due to the new administration.
Not real happy with this school. Not real 'parent friendly'. I feel this shool is less than average.
I have enjoyed Mountain View Elementary. They do offer a lot of afterschool programs which my daughter enjoys.
Mountain View is a very good school. The hard of hearing program there has been wonderful for our son and we credit the teachers and staff with much of his academic success. There is good access to music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities. The before and after schoo program, BASE, is also very good.
Perhaps the countries most outstanding hard of hearing program, serving Adams and Broomfield counties, is housed here. Outstanding school for kids academically. Very high standards and test scores.
My son has attended this school for 3 years. The teachers take a true interest in the children and have a higher academic of learning so a child can achieve. This school also is outstanding for children with disabilities and I feel it gives the other children a sense that these children are the same and relate to them easier now and later in life. I feel this is an excellent school and would have had my child stay if I hadn't had to move out of state.
My daughter moved into this school halfway through the first grade year and she has been welcomed with open arms. She loves this school and has met so many new friends. Not only that, she has learned sign language by being in classes with hearing impaired students! This school truly feels like a community.
I have a 7 year old son who recently completed the first grade at Mountain View Elementary. This is my oldest child, so this is my first interaction as a parent of an elementary student. I feel that the principals, teachers, librarians and the staff at Mountain View really do care about each child and helping them to suceed in all they do seems to be their general goal. Throughout the entire 2002-2003 school year I never had anything but positive interactions with each and every person there. I especially think that Mrs. Hammerly and her obvious gift as a teacher helped me have this positive feeling. I feel good about my son continuing his elementary education at Mountain View and will continue to support them in every way I can. This school has a program for the hearing impaired and even though I do not have a hearing impaired child, I feel that the program they provide and the encouraged interaction with other children could not be better!
