I had read reviews and thought that this was going to be a great school but my son was bullied by kids there and was basically ignored because he wasn't the normal child. He had just lost his father to cancer and they basically put him in the corner and tried to tell me that he was a trouble child. Then I find out after moving him to another school that they wanted him to be in a self-contained classroom because he was having a hard time and missing his dad and was acting out. There was no compassion, just judgement. The principal wheres business suits and heels everyday. You can't be around kids in heels and be able to be on their level. I have never been so frustrated. So glad we pulled him and put him in the great school he is in now. He is excelling now where he was struggling. He has learned more in 1 month at his new school than a whole year of this school. Unless you have a perfect student for your child or plan on spending you days in the classroom, look elsewhere.
Great school. Small town feel within the school. Classrooms are great size and the teachers are fabulous friendly and the kids love them! Love the diversity the school offers and promotes. Families and patents are very involved and supportive.
VIEWMONT ELEMENTARY WHERE TEACHERS AND PRINCIPAL MRS YOUNG DON'T WATCH OVER KIDS AND WHERE BULLIES HAVE THE RUN OF THE SCHOOL. WORSE SCHOOL EVER SPECIALLY SINCE MRS YOUNG BECAME A PRINCIPAL. 2012-2013 MOVING MY CHILD.
We transferred from Jordan school district 2 yrs ago. I have 3 kids in this school and could not be happier with their overall performance. 2 of my children were reading a grade below average when we arrived at Viewmont, now they are excelling above their own grades. The class sizes are small, the teachers are amazing and live to teach, the experience is a win - win! We love Viewmont!
So far so good. This is my daughter's first year. Her teacher seems like she really has it together - well-organized, structured classroom. There is a lot of parent participation at this school and the principle seems great!
Other than a terrible lack of funding, this school does have a ton of parent involvement and the children who attend there do come from good families. Viewmont makes a good effort and tries hard, just don't expect the best.
Viewmont elementary is a wonderful school. The administration is supportive of the teachers and parents. The teacher are wonderful at what they do and many of the parents are actively involved in the classrooms.
