Have had a teacher that was lazy with one child of mine that was struggling. My child needed to be in resource, and it took months to get the teacher to finish their end of the paperwork. This teacher would blame others for her lack of follow through. I finally had to go to the school and say I was not leaving for it to be completed. Resource is great, but this teacher was a waste of our year. This teacher continued to blame others for lack of follow through during the whole year. Very disappointing. I'm looking into charters for this next year.
My daughter has had 2 teachers in a row that were horrible. Principle has done nothing to address our issues. Multiple students 2 years in a row have either left the school all together, or were lucky enough to trade tracks/teachers. Teachers who do not educate and fail to teach our children anything throughout the school year, should not be allowed in the classroom. Monte Vista school has left us disappointed, waisted my child's time, and made me loose more faith in the public school system. You're failing to educate your students. When good families are pulling their children out of your school, and horrible teachers are allowed to continually recieve pay for not doing their job, you're failing the community!
Has wonderful, dedicated teachers and a very caring, experienced principal. Parents are very involved in the day-to-day operations of this school. Parents are welcomed and their involvement is encouraged. This school is very organized and the atmosphere there is extremely positive.
