My child attended from 1St to 5th grade. She didn't want to go to school at all her entire first year. A male teacher was too intimidating and not at all nurturing for her. He was also on the lazy side, always marking papers as correct instead of checking them. I shared my feelings, I wasn't the only one, to no avail. There were a select few teachers as well as front office staff who made the rest of the years bearable, at best. Cafeteria staff is angry all the time.
This school is wonderful. I thought it wouldn't be a great school because is rated 7 out 10 (greatschools.com), however we found that Mountain View Elementary is a very nurturing school, they do interesting activities for the kids and the staff is very kind and respectful to the children and parents. My child loves this school.
Have really enjoyed this school and the teachers and staff who give their all everyday! Our Gym teacher just got Cobb County Gym Teacher of the Year! If you feed into Simpson Middle and Lassiter High, you have hit the jackpot! Great schools too!
My daughter went to this school. I was a bit skeptical since I grew up in suburban New York and went to one of the highest rated schools in the entire country when I was a kid and I had heard that the quality of education in GA is not as good. Well, to my surprise, I actually think this school was better than the one I went to. My daughter finished well prepared for Middle School and I was amazed at how well they learned and how many truly great teachers and administration there were at that school.
We sent three children to this school with two of them graduating into middle as of 2015; we all loved it. We live in the nearby Northampton subdivision, so it is tremendously close for walking to school, the bus or driving. There is a strong focus on academics and it feeds into a nationally top rated Middle School (Simpson) and the #6 high school in the state according to US News & World Report (Lassiter). Lots of good after school clubs, and they have a strong PTA. In two years from now, a new school will be built 1/4 mile down the road, so new technology will be more available than today.
Excellent teachers, very friendly and helpful front office staff, superb and involved principal, very active PTA who ensure everyone is involved and communicated with if they want to be. Can't speak highly enough about the school. I have 2 children there and this is our 5th year in atttendance.
