What is remoresful about a child with disabilities??? Seems to me that you expect teachers to put up with unacceptable behaviors. If your child is that bad off place him in a special class or school. Sounds to me more like a parent that doesnt want to be responsibe for their own child...which could be adding to his or her behavior problems.

This school has no remorse for children with disablities such as ADHD children and children with behavorial issues. Children like this need different techniques to get their attention in school and on the school buses. Instead this school suspended my nephew more times then I can count just because of his behaviors. He is a full fledged ADHD child with behaviors. These teachers dont care about these children. If they did then why would they suggest that the child not return back to school? I would not recommend this school to my dog. They treat their disabilty children like animals.

Mountainview is outstanding in all ways possible. The Board of Ed is really interested in the parents and communities opinions in making the school a great learning experience for the children. My children really enjoy the teachers and all programs offered. The after school programs are great for parents who work and very enriching for the children. It ranges from tutoring to weaving, there is something for everyones interests. Parent involvement needs some improvement, but we do have a few that are faithful to supporting our kids. However, this is the case in most schools due to the fact that in most families both parents work.
