Posted April 25, 2013

I'd say this is one of the worst schools in the area.. Since day 1 my son has been bullied, from his class to the bus and even on the walks home. The teachers he has had won't make sure he has the subject down before going on and we had to get a tutor just for him to keep up.. The funny thing is the teacher didn't even notice on his tests that he had outside instruction. So, we tried to get him transferred to another school, and they system doesn't want him to change.. And the city police didn't do anything when we had to report him getting choked and battered on the walk home from the bus stop..

Mountain View does many things well and is blessed with a brilliant administrator in Carol. Their test scores are relatively high by virtue of the socio-economic level of their parents (there's a surprise!) and their teachers are, for the most part, dedicated, hard working professionals. Pot shots at Evergreen aren't necessary, nor are they appropriate. That dual language program is world class and results in among the highest science scores in the state. If I would ask MTV to improve one thing, it would be the elitism implied in many people's attitudes. It doesn't serve any of us well, and it's not good for our children. Money doesn't equal quality, folks.

Awesome staff, great kids.

In response to the negative Special Ed. parent. We now have new leadership. The school is so popular in the community that MTView has 5 portables on the playground The newest building in town, Evergeen, is a flailing duel language program that parents do not want their children to attend. They have 16 children in their first grades, while Mt View has over 25 per classroom. You would think the leadership of the district would attend to this. September '08 Mt View PTSO had 18 people in attendance. Again a new positive change happened there as well.

Teachers are very attentive and the atmosphere is very positive. However, fewer than 2 parents typically attend PTSA meetings.

The Special Ed program has a great staff, and I cant say enough about what a blessing they have been. Mainstream, is average at best. School security is awful! The leadership is poor~ The general environment is non supportive, and negative, in terms of behavior management. Over all I'm less than impressed with Mt View.

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.
