My children attended Mt. View High School. They received a very good education. Challenging courses are available as is running start (tuition-free college) for qualifying students. Neither of my children needed remedial education upon entering college, and both successfully completed their college program with a high-level of success. To reach this goal, a value for education and reasonable encouragement is necessary from the parent, student, teachers, and principal.

With so many schools forced to provide remedial programs for struggling schools (which Mt. View does), sometimes it means cuts to programs that help top students...not at Mt. View! There are so many Advanced Placement classes-in nearly every offering. The teachers are skilled at not just teaching to the AP tests, but really immersing the students in the subject(s). My kids will be so prepared for college (both in knowledge, rigor and credits).

I'm a parent of 2 that have attended or are attending Mountain View High School. As you know,all kids are different & that can make education a challenge(parenting too for that matter!)I have 1 child that was your "model" student.Focused,strong work ethic & desire to make Honor roll each qtr.Had the full HS experience.Graduated this yr from a top Univ.I have another child, who is completely opposite.Doesn't care about honor roll.May do sports,maybe not.Has trouble focusing & is not your model student.The reason I'm telling you this is that both my children rec'd quality education & benefitted from being @ MTN VIEW HS. Main Reason? The Associate Principal. She's a true asset to the school, the community & the parents.She makes you feel like your child is the only child @ the school.She works hard to make sure that their needs are met.Kids like my 2nd often get lost in the system,get "labeled" & for some who don't have the care &concern of someone like the Assoc. Principal,quit school or "just make it" to graduation by teachers moving them thru the system.You get 1 chance to get it right w/your kids.I'd put them here again.Safe envir.Caring staff.Broad Class choices.Very positive exp

Frankly, I did not enjoy Mt. View High that much. First off, the school had many problems with teachers that were anywhere from inexpirienced to just plain rude to the students (The machining and welding teacher was GREAT at the later). Secondly, the staff at the school were not trustworthy, as they had openly lied to my face multiple times, and when called out on it, punished me by suspension, detention or other means. Thirdly, the students themselves were rather mean and discriminatory, extremely rude to me and other students, as well as very homophobic (I'm a gay student with gender identity issues) and frequently called me various unpleasant names in front of the teachers, many of whom did absolutely nothing to intervene. But this is not to say that it's a bad school, not at all. It has MANY good things about it, like the well-equipped machine shop, the friendly staff and the fun activities students get to perform in the classes. overall, I give this school an average rating. This place needs improvement, and the staff needs to learn what truancy laws are and what is written in them, but overall it is a decent school.

I feel like there are too little 'good' teachers here. Majority of them are very rude to students and just make the school plain un-enjoyable. 'Average' kids are just tossed to the side too. People are extremely judgmental also. Glad to be leaving soon.

My oldest had some problems at Mt. View with bullying and did not get the control needed from staff. Now I have more teens at the school and have been very pleased with the control and communication between staff & parents. Our counselor Mr. Odell is wonderful and communicates with parents and students. The teachers are vey supportive in helping your student be successful!

Mt. View High School provides strong academics and strong after school programs. They have been able to maintain a strong dance program, even when many schools are cutting back in dance, drama etc. Kudos to not only the staff and administration but involved parents as well.

I think that Mountain View High School is one of the best high schools in the nation, because of the staff members are highly eduacated and the students are learning a lot from them. I currently go to this school, and personally I think that MVHS is going a wonderful job at helping the students, and the teachers know if something is wrong, there are also 3-5 security gaurds on campus and a police man that is assigned dierectly to MVHS, and they help the students to the best of their ability. I have looked into other high school around the area, including: Portland and all around the Vancouver area, and the high schools do not match up to MVHS. The campus life is very suitable to every students' liking. If you have a child that is in middle school and is in the Evergreen School District, chose MVHS.

Mountain View is top-notch. As a parent, I went to their Thunder Day event. It really showcased a ton of the school's programs and allowed us to get a glimpse into what makes Mtn. View the high school to be at in Vancouver. The building needs updating like Evergreen or Union. Nevertheless, the staff is awesome.

Great School. My daughters had to transfer out last year, and it was the worst move we could have ever done. This year, they commute to Mountain View because it has such a better environment and teaching team.

It is hard to find a school where all your needs can be met. If you want excellent academics, sports, music or art (maybe even all!!) you can get it at MVHS. My son has truely enjoyed his time at MVHS and is very prepared to move on to UCSB this fall.

Moutain View High School is the creme de la creme of high schools in Vancouver. Their teachers are dedicated, Mr. Meloy is a true educator, the facilities are getting better, but most importantly, the faculty and staff honestly care about the well being and success of their students. Amazing school, great experience.

I graduated from Mt. View High School in 2006 and I advise parents to enroll in the Evergreen School District because of its quality in educating students and its ability to encourage students to succeed. Mt. View has helped prepare me for college in ways that I never thought possible. The English, Foreign Languag and Social Science departments are top notch and I am so greatful for my experience at Mt. View.

Recommend this school for someone who comes from a high-income family with two parents and a religious background. Drug & crime issues are low. There is high peer pressure on image, the kind of car you drive, the clothes you wear, the friends you have, etc. Students who drive brand new cars and wear brand name clothes are more accepted.

Mountain View is the best high school around Washington. As a former student, I know that the teachers are great as well as friendly students around the school. I wish I was still there.

I have been very pleased with the opportunities and support provided at Mt. View. Having a child with a developmental disability as well as a student taking pre-AP courses, I have experienced a wide array of teachers and services available in the school. They have provided both my children with an education that meets their needs along with the support required. They are responsive to my concerns and respectful of my opinions. Staff has been willing to work with me to problem solve any issues that have arisen and kept me well informed of things that may require my attention. My student taking pre-AP courses continues to show fantastic test scores and is appropriately challenged by the classes offered. My student with special needs is well accepted, included and supported by both staff and the wonderful students. I highly recommend this Mountain View High School.

the programs are fantastic, the teacherss are very involved with the students and the kids there want to learn. The school is kept up nicely and is just such a fantastic learning environment for our daughter she loves every minute of 10th grade and cant wait until 11th. The school is by far the best there is!!

Mt. View is a large school with many offerings. As a parent, you need to still participate and learn about the school, even when your student appears not to need as much help. Every staff member I have had contact with is pleased to help, update and provide other information on my student. They also seem very student-centered. As long as you are active in seeking information out, you will find it.
