Best High School in Utah, if not the nation. Awesome teachers, sports, programs, etc. Guaranteed!


Posted January 11, 2011

I attended Mountain View and loved the experience I had there. To this day I look back at the dynamics, academics, and cultural opportunities the school provided. It has all the academic needs from a scholar to a struggling student and the teachers and administrators really know the students and know what is going on in the school. It is a safe, fun, and clean environment that provided for the best high school experience. It easily compares to the top schools around Utah County (e.g. Pleasant Grove, Lone Peak). I would highly recommend it for anyone.

I attended this school. The academic and sporting opportunities are great. The general culture was repressive. Also, the school's interior consists of a huge white tube that always reminded me of the halls in a hospital (if you took down all the pictures).

I was a student that went to this school. I know that if I had a choice to go to a different school (which I did) I would take it (which I did) I know that this is just a view of a student to you but I suggest that you think of any other option that you may have.

This is a great school beacuse of its diverse cultures that are brought into it. This makes up for all of the differeft classes a student could take throughout their three years. Their athletic talent is also pretty amazing: in just 25 years, this high school has received 7 National Championships and 78 State Championships, as well as set numerous national records. This is a one of a kind school!

Excellent school for sports, music, and Advanced Placement programs. Their AP classes are generally smaller with exceptional teachers, and their music and sports programs do very well too. Plenty of opportunities for everyone. Parental involvement scores may be low, but that is usually because nobody has any problems with the school. It's just a great school.

This school is set up like a university. there are little departments within the high school. there is an art/theatre dept., a business dept., and a health/medical dept. there is a high standard for all of the students athletically and academically.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Utah used the Utah Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 2 through 11 in Language Arts, in grades 2 through 8 in Math, in grades 4 through 8 in Science and upon completion of certain courses in grades 8 through 11. The CRT is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Utah. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
