4/11/2012parentI have had 3 children at this school, and I have mostly been unhappy with it. While my kids have had some really great teachers in the last six years, I have been extremely frustrated with the school's emphasis on fund-raising (booster-thon, ugghh!), the administration's focus on policy over what's best for students, and the general feeling that this school is stuck in the 1950s. I've overhead teachers speaking very unkindly to students on many occasions, my kids have spent countless hours doing useless homework (worksheets, etc.), teachers appear to quit engaging kids by mid-March to practice for the CRCT (that's another story!), and the school lunch is pathetic (why are they selling flaming hot cheetos?!). The front office staff is friendly & the PTA is very involved, but I'm a public school teacher & I know that Mtn. View could do a better job providing a creative, engaging, welcoming environment. IMPORTANT NOTE: this school is divided between three high schools, which affects the sense of community here. The majority of kids live in North Hampton Subdivision (Lassiter)... the Sprayberry & Pope students/parents often feel left out. Other nearby schools are kept together.
8/13/2009parentI think Mountain View is a top notch school. The teachers are fantastic and the staff is caring. The building is older but the not lacking in facilities. The principal is tough but fair and I think she does wonderful job. I can't say enough good things about this school.
10/1/2008parentThis school is excellent but the building is small for the amount of students. They need to expand. My son loves it.
8/26/2008parentThree of my kids are going to this school. We moved them from a private school.Its a wonderful school and my kids are really happy here.
10/21/2007parentMountain View Elementary is a great school with excellent leadership, fantastic teachers and phenomenal parent support. The school just started a parent foundation to support the school above and beyond funds provided by the PTA and the County.
2/23/2007parentThis is my daughter's second year at Mountain View and I truly believe in the educational environment that are providing. The teachers are truly top-notch.
5/18/2004parentThree of my sons go or have gone to Mountain View and I think it is the best school in the world. They truly individualize the teaching methods used to reach each individual child and they truly care.
