Monticello Trails Middle School. I feel most of the teachers are young and more into themselves. Many of the women wear very tight "Leggings" and it shows C-toe. There are a few gems in the group, but few and far between. The MVHS is really bad too. Mike Raush, I feel is a really bad teacher!

My son is about to enter his 8th grade year at Monticello Trails. It is a great school, in a great neighborhood. The staff of the district goes out of their way to make all students comfortable. There is a very strict no bullying policy. The entire curiculum is very responsibility based. I could not think of a better place for your child to attend school. Both of my children are in this district. Both of their schools score very highly in assessment scoring.
