Mountain View is a great school. The administration, teachers, and counselors are knowledgeable, professional, and caring. Students feel safe, cared for, and are learning. Test scores don't always reflect the real achievement or ability of students. Mt. View actually has a large population of learning support students because parent's of students with learning disabilities move here because of the excellent special education department. It's a great school for any student of any ability level.

I love Mountain View. Not for its acedimcs or extracurricular activities, but beacuse of the friendships I've made in my 6 years of attendance here. I am in 8th grade and i do feel that the only thing that makes me want to go here is my friends. I am involed in extracurricular activities,and acedemics is one of my stenghts. This is mainly because I've been fortunate enough to have mostly great teachers. I just think my school should think a little bit more 'out side the box'. Not that this Isn't a great school to send your kids(you'll always feel safe and welcome here),but if you plan on living a city life as a business man or women then u might want to rethink moutian view as an option for your childs school.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
