54 Parent Reviews for Mountain View Elementary School

After reading the latest reviews I feel that I must respond to April 29. I do not know how in the world that parent can claim that the principal is incompetent. Dr. Podhaski has been nothing short of AMAZING as he kept the school running smoothly through a long and trying year of major renovation construction ...  Read more

This is a great elementary school. The principal is fantastic and the staff is so friendly. The teachers are so creative and you can really see the love for the children at the school. I am so glad we are zoned for this campus!

I love this school and so does my child. Is it perfect? Of course not, but I think it is the best in the area. I feel that the administration cares very much about the students, and the principal is a great leader while also being a warm, consistent role model for the students. The PTA is very involved ...  Read more

This school is a tremendous disappointment. The principal is incompetent and so are the assistant principals. They want you to believe they are on top of things, but in all honesty, very little gets done and students are not a priority. Some teachers work very hard to provide for the students, but ...  Read more

My only concern is what I've read about this "Desert" I'm all good with the purpose it serves but as for the ...  Read more

Students who are being disciplined for misbehavior are made to sit out their lunch recess. Not sure if it's still called "The Desert" or not, but IMO this is an appropriate disciplinary measure for misbehaving students.

Question...I was reading about "the desert" back in 2011. Is this still being practiced? Im looking at buying a house and deciding between Copperas Cove and Harker Heights....If such a thing is being done at this school it'll make my decision easier. Thank you

We have been a part of the Mountain View Family for 7 years. My oldest son went Kindergarten - 5th grade here and my youngest, 1st-3rd. It has been a positive experience all the way. This is a very community-oriented school. The teachers are committed, open, and genuinely care for their students. The ...  Read more
