I have had 4 kids go through Mt. View and have been very pleased with the school. There is a strong emphasis on reading and comprehension and it has benefited my children greatly.

This is a fantastic school! Very active PTA that really looks out for the needs of the students. The teachers have been wonderful at communication. I like that if there is ever an issue with my child's school work, that I know when it happens, instead of finding out when report cards come out. I also can't say enough about the volunteer program Watchdogs! It is a blessing to have these fathers be so active in the schools.

Awesome school... even to the point of too much parents involvement...lol, i guess it is a good thing so the kids are closely watched. Nice neighborhood and nice houses around the school which is very pleasing to look at :) Great turn out of PTA meeting everytime. Many smart kids and nice parents also.... great school overall... Hope the great staff there would stay and not change


Posted July 8, 2011

Great school! They actually have too much parent / school communication with calls about twice a week with updates, etc. I guess that is better then none at all. We are very pleased with the school.

This is a great school. One of the top 2 elementary schools in the county (Sherrils Ford is the other). We have been happy with everything. I do wish my kid had a little less Drama and Music classes, and more Art and PE, but that is just me being picky....Great school!

Most reisdents around this public school are professionals transplanted from elsewhere. I noticed lots of engineers, doctors and lawyers live around here. Nice houses also are found next to the school. The national standard test score are way above the surrounding schools (even compared to the private ones).. Initially i was skeptical but involved parents make great schools for wonderful kids. That formula always works... here and everywhere else....

Wonderful school and fantastic teachers

Posted January 15, 2006

My son has been going to this school for two years now. He loves it there. It is a smaller school...so they can give more attention to the students. They have great teachers that actuallyy try to make sure your child learns the things that they need to know instead of passing them like some schools do. My son learned how to read in Kindergarten there. He's in first grade now and can read third grade books. They have an excellant library as well. They have great field trips and small class sizes. They have art and music from kindergarten and up. They also start teaching your child computers very early. They have an after school program and no smoking anywhere on the campus. It is a very great school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
