I love MV! All of my teachers really showed they care about us and want us to succeed in college and life beyond. The athletics at this school is excellent as well and going to the football and basketball games are some of the best experiences of my high school experience. The spirit at this school is ...  Read more

MV does a good job in preparing students for college. Make sure to watch you child, I am a former student (class of 2008), there is a TON of drug abuse. The school is avg. in my opinion. I transferred from a private school in my senior year. I found that the teachers did not care, and some were horrible ...  Read more

We moved here a year ago from another state, and though MV has a reputation as an excellent school, I must say that we have been generally disappointed. Staff is generally unhelpful, downright surly at times. Customer service is non-existent. (I think it's a function of the school being too large -- ...  Read more

Monte Vista provides exceptional teachers and a variety of classes to suit the interests of a multitude of students. However, as a current student there, I find that the number of students is overwhelming, and the 30 to 1 student to teacher ratio takes away from individualized attention. However, aside ...  Read more

I am a sophomore at Monte Vista High. As a minority, I find that racism is not a big issue. While the majority of the school is white, there is a huge population of East Asians, Middle Easterns, and Indians that go to Monte Vista and hang out with each other. Some of the teachers are excellent and others ...  Read more

I have two children at this school and I cannot speak highly enough about the teachers at this school. They are awesome. Some of them are demanding and grade harder than others, but they all seem to really care about the kids at this school. We came from an expensive private school and my kids did not ...  Read more

School's administrators - some are wonderful, some are trying to earn their stripes and it shows. Some of the teachers are caring and exceed expectations, some are young, inexperienced, and awful with respect to communication with parents and the general way they treat the kids. We've had a mixed experience ...  Read more

MV is very much glorified, and all to often the school does not live up to its expectations. Administration is extremley lacking, half of teachers and faculty are sensational, while the other half are down right awful. Parents are hit up for money constantly. Overall, Monte Vista is an OK school, but ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
