There are very few things in life that qualify/fit the category of perfect. MVHS students and staff seem to be seeking a perfect ranking. My daughter is a Freshman this year at MVHS, and her experience has been a pleasant one. She is seriously into music - and her love of music & band has grown immensely this year. I am also a member of the teaching staff here at MVHS. What I have seen in the classroom is inspiring, and it's these wonderful students who keep me in the profession. I find it amazing to see: students teaching students, students becoming leaders, students sharing their knowledge and skills, and their determination & creativity are second to none. I love this school & the kids here - it may not be "perfect," but we all work hard to make it a GREAT place.

I enjoy working with so many teachers and faculty that truly care about molding our youth not only into better students, but into better people as well.

I am impressed with the staff at MVHS and their dedication to the students. There is staff so willing to go above and beyond for the students that need comfort, reassurance, compassion and a much needed hug.

I have now been teaching at MVHS for 3 years, and am continually amazed at the dedication and professionalism that my fellow staff members display. In my opinion, the ultimate test of a school is if a staffer is comfortable enough with the faculty and programs to send their own child there. Needless to say, next year my own daughter will be walking the halls of MVHS.

I am saddened to see the comments below about my new school. I transitioned to Mountain View about two weeks into the second semester. My experience was amazing! Everyone was very nice and very helpful during my transition. This school is for very independent oriented students who want to work hard. If you struggle in school, there are many teachers and even students willing to help you with whatever you may need. The amount of freedom I was granted as a sophomore was what I noticed the most about this school. Overall a solid 3 ranking.

This school is the shame of the Thompson School District. Maybe now that the principal, Kevin Aten, has gone to the Evans School District as an HR Specialist, it will improve. Hopefully for the families who still have to deal with it. Too many bad teachers being kept, too many good teachers being run off. Too many coaches who have no clue what they are doing. Too much emphasis put on the kids who are the top notch athletes, they get away with whatever they want. No support for kids wanting to go to college. Counselors don't even know who most of the kids are, and don't really seem to care.

The classes are average. The financial help is great, i got plenty of help when i was considered under the homeless category. Unfortunately, i think the school overall is not challenging. Because i was no one important at the school apparently, they did not put me in the yearbook for senoir year (after receiving a baby picture and senoir picture i had temporarily lended them) , and had lost one of the only pictures i had of me when i was a child, after specifically telling the yearbook staff i needed my picture back. It was hard for me to explain to my family (who did support me) that they couldnt have a yearbook because i wasnt in it..

The LISA visual arts program is terrible. A much better choice is the Thompson Valley HS art program. Student teacher ratio is terrible. Overall, not cutting the mustard.

Mountain View High School has some great teachers and staff. However, the Music and Drama dept is an utter disappointment for a LISA school. The director is unable to address proper etiquette with his choirs, and allows clowning from certain students which makes it impossible for serious students to develop their singing skill. In leadership of the drama dept, I think this man forgets he is at a high school. He requires 8 x 10 B&W headshots for auditions, and then casts himself in the lead role.

The cross country program is pretty much amazing. The 2005 cross country runners for Mountain View were some of the best around and they proved that after becoming the 4A State Champions. Amazing place, amzing people, with a great attitude!

Not very diverse in it's ethnicity numbers. If your not a Caucasian at this school, you will have issues with students and staff, kinda sad. Not just something I have heard but have experienced.

MVHS offers good programs and has good intentions of helping students. I am pleased with this school but not ecstatic about it.

From the classroom to the athletic field, the staff and administration at Mountain View HS are the best anywhere. A school-within-a-school concept, education is more personalized and we are a community. The administrators and coaches are very good, especially in the athletic department. We have 4 state championships in our brief 3 1/2 existence.

MVHS has set a high standard of excellence, and this from a school that is only 3 years old! My child had a wonderful experience there- the teachers are so committed to the students. Test scores don't tell the whole story. MVHS is great.
