Mountain View High School3

For a new school, this school has accomplished a lot and continues to grow in academic and extracurricular activities. While there are so many incredible teachers, there are numerous teachers in the opposite spectrum-because more than one teacher teaches the same course, the grade is jeopardized by which teacher the student gets. To add on to the student:counselor ratio that was mentioned in another post, the counselors at the school, except one, has NO EXPERTISE on college admission. So far, the best advice I got from my "counselor" was "Apply to College.". While the counselors are friendly and sweet, they really don't have any knowledge/advice beyond what a Google search would give you. My counselor wasn't even aware that UGA uses its own application when it is one of the most applied college/university at Mountain View...
The significant number of problems within the Band program is enough to make us want to run away. The parent volunteer that runs the band association is out of control and seems to run it for the benefit of her own child. The principal will not do anything and will not enforce his own directions upon the band director. There was a meeting with parents of over 12 students (1/4th of the band) complaining about the issues with no action being taken.
Mountain View is the best school ever!!!! My son graduated in 2012 and was enrolled when they first opened. Mr. Chaney is the BEST and Mrs. Fisher his AP teacher was AWESOME!!! I am so glad we had the opportunity to be involved with Mountain View!!! We are BEARS to the end!!!
AWARD WINNING SCHOOL IN FAST GROWING AREA! THE SCHOOL HAS VERY HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS. THE PRINCIPAL MAKES SURE THAT ACADEMICS & EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES ARE WELL BALANCED. MY DAUGHTER REALLY LEARNED A LOT AT THE SCHOOL.
