We were at Mt. View for 3 years. During that time, I was personally able to see how hard the administration works and cares about the success of the children. They have many committees in place to talk about and address issues and concerns. The end goal being to implement positive changes for the campus and children.
No school is perfect but when the administration is approached in the right way they will try to work with you to find a positive outcome. The teachers and staff are fun, friendly and great educators. Some of my children’s favorite teachers are teaching at Mt. View. They have opened up doors and windows for my kids and made learning fun.
The PTA works really hard to provide TONS of opportunities for the students and families. They are always looking for parent involvement!
We were very happy at Mt. View and sad that we had to move. I know this school will continue to do great things!!
It's not too much or too little...I do like the diversity of assignments his teachers send home. When I was in school all I did was write. My son did a video project. That made him excited and he worked a lot on the project.
Absolutely! My son is learning respect at MVES and the staff clearly treat students with respect. I see it. I am very happy with the school's leadership. Like any school, there are a few teachers that could use a change of career but the overwhelming majority of staff are great. They also tend to hire local parents to man some of the lunch room needs and office jobs. All of them thus far have been very professional and show us respect when we enter the school.
We've been with Mountain View for 4 years now. The school has caring teachers and professional leadership. Most importantly, I felt my two boys learned at Mountain View. Some schools seem to be there and go through the motions but MV seems to be a live...you can sense it when you walk into the school. At no time is there any drama or a sense that everyone isn't here for the kids. When my older son left the school last year he was genuinely sick over leaving. I really have been pleased with the school.
Most of the teachers are very nice and work to try and help your students, however, their hands are tied by management. They aren't your child's advocate and don't step up when you're child is being mistreated. Brush things under the rug and do their best to help the child's feelings out in the process.
