I'm sad to say that I only wish that I had found this website before I enrolled my child. After 9 weeks I have made the difficult decision to move my child to another school. I agree that the school seems to be more interested in the fundraising and the sports. I was shocked to hear that chapel was cancelled to attend a pep rally. Why do preschoolers need to attend a pep rally? I was informed that the homework would be available online for me to print. Even public schools give you hard copies. When I went to the login it was just websites to go to and obtain the homework. For the money you pay, they can afford to make a few copies. Even public schools give you hard copies. Please ask the right questions when enrolling your child in this or any school.
I went to MVCS in 6th grade, but came back for my years of high school and graduated in 2006. I loved every minute of it how everyone was so involved I would of never recieved that at any of the othe private schools. It was like a family and I still talk and visit with the staff and my whole graduating class. Highly suggest going to Mt. View.
My children have been at MVCS for 5 years, and this is the first year that I don't feel that the school has earned an exceptional rating--I would give them 1 or 2 stars if I was only considering the 07-08 year. While there are many caring teachers and the curriculum is solid (at least for elementary and middle school), in the past year, the administration seemed more concerned about enrollment numbers, dollar signs, and athletics, and less concerned about academics, security and behavior. Phone calls to administration are often not returned, discipline is inconsistent and favoritism is obvious. I hope to see them return to their previous standards in the coming year.
My daughter graduated from MVCS and she loved every minute of her time there. The teachers are caring and the adminitrators give of their time after school to coach the kids and mentor them. The two staff members who do not support the school should leave. If its such a bad place why stay? I love the place. My daughter is who she is today because of it.
I have had my children attend Mountain View for about 10 years now and I have to say I am pleased. I for one feel the education offered is above average and ultimatley the success of my students depends on them and myself. The staff at MVCS are very helpful and encouraging. Not to mention the safety factor. MVCS is a well maintained and gaurded school. I plan on having my children graduate from this school. Thank You MVCS!!!!
Totally not preparing the students for the real world, one teacher I know doesn't even have a college/teaching degree, good job Mtn View. They care more about the money than the teaching.
I wil be taking my child out of this school during Winter break. How can my child get a good education when the teachers do not have one? No wonder my child is behind her public school friends!
MVCS has the ability to be a great school. I think there focus should be more on the students and not the enrollment numbers. Everything is always about numbers. Educating the kids should be priority. Until they realize that the kids that are there are priority, they will continue to struggle.
My child has just began public school, and he/she is now being put in different classes becuase mountain view did not have their students in the right classes according to grade. They start you out with the wrong english classes so that if you do indeed decide to change school you are completely off with the rest of the county.
MVCS didnt get me prepared for where i neee to go, i want to go to an out of state college for fashion, and the classes that i need the either do not offer or they did not tell me that i was supposed to take them. I love the students there, but the teachers aren't good.
mountain view is not worth the money! most teachers are underqualified and just don't really care. i spent most of my days there doing busy work instead of actually learning.
I have recently taken my child out of MVCS and put him in public school. I am amazed at all of the classes he is behind in. There are also many classes that he took at MVCS and is not getting credit for in public school. MVCS has not been a good experience for us!!
MVCS is the best! And yes, it's a Christian school. You can feel it in the atmosphere. I know many of the teachers personally. They sacrifice so much for their students. I have been in prayer meetings where MVCS teachers are crying for their students for hours. These teachers truly care. The love they show is straight from God. I Know the staff of MVCS, and they are most definitely close to God (and it shows).
My children are starting their sixth year at MVCS. I have found their education far exceeds that of their public school peers. The school offers many extra-curricular activities from elementary through high school. The teachers have been excellent. We have rarely had issues with teachers and have always been able to work things out. Administration is easy to contact and open to workng with parents. My children love going to this school. They have very good relationships with the teachers they have had and look forward to returning each fall. We plan on keeping our children at MVCS until graduaion.
I rate it an average because it can be very well, average. The tone and manner of some of the teachers can be unproffesional. I like that the classrooms are very diverse and not too large, but even with smaller classrooms help is not distributed evenly. In my opinion, the tution doesnt match the service.
i went to mountain view for several years, and once i started 7th grade and was up in the high schools wing i hated it. no ones nice, everyone pushes in the hall ways, but thats just the way kids are these days, i know. but when you need something the teachers never help, there to busy talking about our highschool drama, to pay attention. they teach us not to gossip, when thats the only thing they do.
my outlook on this school seems to be one of many. i sent my daughter to warren walker and did not like it, and had heard only great things about mvcs. but when sending her there, yes the students were welcoming but the teachers didnt seem to pay much attention to her, it was more on the students already there. she was learning so many more new things at her old school. i am sending her back this upcoming year.
I had high expectations for MVCS, but my children will not be returning next year. The curriculum is average-except too much influence with bible teachings-it overshadows the need for more emphasis on basics, like math, science, history, etc.. Unfortunately, it is a whole lot about money. The fundraising for missions is obsessive, while the kids are still in trailers. Some of the Junior and High School students speak more filth than I expected for the environment. The Library is poorly stocked. The only positive is the safety aspect.
I am a staff member of MVCS and am sad to say that my view of the school has changed. There is no forgiveness from the administrators and I have seen many good staff members let go due to impulsive decisions by those in authority. I do not feel the mission statement is lived by, and often times I am disappointed that this is a Christian organization because of the contradictions seen throughout the entire school. Unfortunately, the school wants to be the best, but does not do what is necessary to become the best.
