70 Parent Reviews for Monte Vista Elementary School

You expect there to be cliques and bullies at any school. What you don't expect is for the teachers to promote the cliques as well as let the bullies do as they wish without consequence. As past reviews have noted, the teachers don't promote a positive, encouraging learning environment. Instead, they ...  Read more

I regret ever sending my children to Monte Vista. Although we had a couple of outstanding teachers, there are many that were cruel and verbally abusive. Adding to this problem was the intense bullying that seemed to go unattended to by the staff. Overall, this school does not promote a positive, emotionally ...  Read more

There are some wonderful teachers at Monte Vista, but there are also some who have lost sight of why they are there: to teach and encourage children to become lifelong learners. Not to punish, demean, or ridicule. I have heard that there is a new principal coming this fall. Maybe there will be positive ...  Read more

Posted by a parent on 06/18/13 response to the last comment, my kids have excelled at Monte Vista, Rosemont and CV High School, without the help of any tutors. They really owe their success to the stellar teachers! Their learning experience at Monte Vista has been enriched by the Meet the Masters art program, Robotics and ...  Read more

The test scores are high here because of the highly tutored Korean children. They do not motivate just punish.

Horrible! The principal is completely robotic and uninvolved, the staff is cold, and the lunch program is the worst I have ever seen, extremely gross and disguting food, and with it the kids get the lunch monitors screaming at them to eat, very appetizing!They do not care about the kids they care about ...  Read more

We have been thrilled with the education offered to our children at Monte Vista. The teachers are truly dedicated to the art teaching children. My kids have loved the orchestra and band programs as well as the recorder class and choir programs. Gate has been excellent and the math club is a real treasure. ...  Read more

Monte Vista is just barely acceptable. I suppose it gets hits high scores from the test scores from the large percentage of highly motivated and privately tutored Korean students who attend here, but the school itself has not motivated our children. If your child is average the teachers check out. One ...  Read more
