Mountain View is good for the elementary programs there, but that would be it. Favoritism is a huge deal. The school focuses so much on how much money they can raise through fund raisers and such that education almost seems to be put secondary. I would not suggest anyone to MVCS.
I love love love MVCS! My son graduated this year (he's attended since the first grade) and my daughter will be a sophomore in the fall. Their teachers have always gone the extra mile for each of them. I never felt 'out of the loop'. The office staff are wonderful and personable. They know your children and you by name. MVCS is worth every single dollar we've spent on my kids education. If I had to do it all over again. I wouldn't have changed a thing.
I am pulling my child out of this school after attending for 5 years. I would expect him to be ahead of public school but indeed he is behind and will have to take summer school. I am very disappointed in the immaturity and unprofessionalism of the entire staff. This has been a waste of money for our family, but hey, at least the administration can afford to live like kings and queens! Not to mention the new cafeteria I helped pay for! Do not send your child here!
This is our 5th year at MVCS. We love it! Wonderful environment with teachers and staff who truly care. Challenging academics, great art and music teachers, band, sports, Bible education and chapel each week along with a safe and fun school environment are reasons we like it so much. For the most part, parents are very friendly and down to earth and parent participation is high. Diverse group of ethnicities and backgrounds but teachers and staff treat everyone with respect & kindness. Private Christian education is certainly a sacrifice as it isn't cheap. However, we have found it is well worth it! We are very happy with MVCS. Our daughters love their school!
MVCS has been overall a good elementary school. I have great concern for the high school level of teaching i.e. the quality of the teachers and what is available for the kids. They do seem to have a high priority for the safety of the kids. The whole first quarter has seem to have been more about how much money the school could raise, and not so much on education. Hopefully 2nd quarter will be better!
MVCS is the best Christian School in Las Vegas. The teachers truly care about the needs of each student and want to be there. I have seen many teachers go the extra mile to see the kids succeed. For example, my daughter's teacher offers free tutoring after school for the children who need extra help. I am very impressed as a parent. I also like the new state of the art kitchen that was opened this year. Now my child has a healthy hot lunch each day. The rising tuition is the only issue I have with MVCS, but the quality of the school is well worth the sacrifice.
My daughter has attended MVCS for five years now, and started there in the 6th grade. We have never regretted sending her to MVCS. I believe the quality of the education she is receiving is superior to what she would get in the public schools in Las Vegas. Brian Glover
My child has attended for almost three years. He is in pre-school and has done very well there. He truely enjoys going and has learned computer fundamentals, art, physical education & music. I especially like he attends chapel once a week with children his own age. He has had four fundamental teachers since starting there and I would score them all very high on discipline, manners & teaching respect for others. He has been taught well on the basic education for his age level, including the bible. I did have a problem once with a teacher, which could happen at any school, and we quickly resolved the issue by talking. My son has been at 2 other daycares prior to Mountain View, any I've never seen the rudeness/disrespect towards the kids as I did at the other places he attended. I would highly recommend visiting MVCS & forming your opinion.
I feel that MVCS is a great school.It has weak areas just like any other school, however it provides a great enviornment and has many great activities. I am very pleased.
Very good school, Safe secure, Fair and the most color blind environment that I have ever seen. Excelent facilities for sports and the developmnet of children.
My son was in the kindergarten class this past year, and we were very pleased with this school. We thought that the level of parent participation was quite high, the interest level of his teacher(and most teachers that we experienced,)was as well. Although this was my son's teacher's first year of teaching, she really seemed to know each child quite well. She welcomed and encouraged us parents, although at times we felt a little ill-informed at certain class and school events. I'm sure that was just because of inexperience. We look forward to all of the opportunities awaiting our son as he progresses through this curriculum.
MVCS is a terrible school. You might take their little tour and then you'll think its great. But the teachers dont teach. They leave it all up to the students. Certain students get privileges because they have a parent in the staff. Teachers will assign work and not do any teaching. They spend the tuition money on meaningless things and dont keep track of how the school is going. The students are treated differently. Some teachers are even racist. They spend more time on sports than acedemics. MVCS is a waste of money. Dont make your child suffer.
I think this school offers a great education to an extent but I dont like the fact that some of the teachers and adminisrtation are rascist toward some of the students. I don't feel that this school offers enough ways for my child to get a scholarship and provide enough electives.
I am very happy with MVCS. My 2 children have been there K-6th and 1st-8th. They both intend on graduating from MVCS. It is a wonderful enviroment with teachers and administration that care.
Best Christian private school in Las Vegas. I have had all three of my children attend there. Excels and improves every year. Best decision I ever made!
