Mountain View is a school focused on helping all students. We achieve to push our students to their best ability and to strive for excellence.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted January 17, 2013

This school was not good in the time I went there, but my classmates graduated from this school in 2011 and I left in 2010 so maybe my opinion is no longer valid. Bonney Lake is a bad neighborhood for being social. Many of the people I was surrounded by often used bad language towards each other and did "bad things", if you know what I mean. The teachers were not very caring and honestly none of them stood out to me. If you were quiet, wearing alternative or plain clothing, overweight, awkward, struggled academically, nerd, etc. you just didn't fit in anywhere. No one seemed to like you. I had never felt so alone. I got bullied a lot at this school. The few friends I made were bullied too, for being 'shy' or 'fat' or 'dumb'. I won't even tell you what they called me. But aside from that, the education was good. But it won't prepare you if you switch schools. I had trouble catching up. Once, we had to partner up for a game and I didn't have a parter. Since nobody in the class liked me, the teacher made me go outside and do work. He also let other students use me in examples of sentences for words related to shyness. Talk about making the depressed loner feel better about herself!

Teachers are very polite and works with my child with areas that he needs helps in on their own time (after hours)

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
