Too much griping about politics and promoting outside businesses. I don't want to have to complain or hunt through the internet to make sure my childs picture isn't published.

I cringe reading several teachers' letters home rife with misspelled words and improper grammar. These are the people my children are supposed to (not "suppose to") see as models. Disappointing.

I am so proud of Mt View School! First of all when you approach the school it is a beautiful place it will make you happy being there! As you walk in the school everyone there has smiles on their faces and want to greet you! As you walk into the hallways you know that the children are learning so very much! Pictures on all the walls of learning tools! The colors in the school make you feel comfortable and above all my grandchild loves her school! There are so many things to do as far as activities! I am proud to have my granddaughter to be going to Mt. View School!

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

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....

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!
