My oldest son who is a senior at sandia high has done so well in school even with a slight learning disability in math .He will graduate with a 3.5 GAP this year .He got his start at Monte vista from K to 5th it was a great school for us . I never aging felt so closes to teachers and the path of my sons academic success for the rest of his years in school. my younger son will be 5 this year and we intend to move back to the UNM community witch is really home any way So the little one can start Monte Vista and his brother who 12 years ago was in kindergarten at Monte vista can start UNM.
Monte Vista has some of the best teachers I have ever encountered, a supportive community, and an administration that helps the teachers be creative and flexible in their teaching methods. But it is really the teachers that make the school. They are without parallel.
I agree with most of the other statements about Monte Vista. The teachers are awesome and the parents involved. The community around Monte Vista/UNM is very diverse both racially and economically. We love the school - the only drawback is the principal, who is unresponsive to parent and teacher concerns. Luckily, she can be avoided.
I was a student at Monta Vista and now its my daughters turn! She started kindergarden last year and LOVED it! Now shes starting 1st grade and there is NO OTHER school i would want her at!! WE LOVE MONTA VISTA AND THE TEACHERS!! Cathy Sierra is HIGHLY recomended!!!!!!!!!
My grandson was in kindergarden last year and grew so much in all his skills there with the teachers he can read all the way up to 2nd grade books to me and is teaching his younger sister that is only 2 years old what he was taught now that is progress, Now i will look into sending my other grandchildren that with the help of there parents first.
