This is likely one of the most ethnically and racially diverse schools in the nation. The campus is nice and the teachers are phenomenal. Aside from that, it is vital for your child (or your own self; if you are a student, of course) to get involved with as many clubs, organizations, sports and student unions as possible. As a recently graduated senior, a lot of my peers regret not getting involved enough through the years. High School is the last life you get before the real world, so make the most of it!

Mountain pointe is not your cookie cutter school. The diversity of the students and the diversity of the classes offered there create an environment that will prepare kids for real life. People choose to send their kids there not because we have to but because they want to.

Regarding 2014-2015 AZ Merit test scores published here, MP was one of the only schools statewide to give the new pilot test electronically and the school did not have the network infrastructure to support the # of students taking the test at the same time. Many of the students tests timed out, computers crashed, etc. The district and the state dept of education indicated it was a pilot year and scores would not be published so not to worry about it. Obviously that was not the case - as the scores are published here.

I didn't have the a great high school experience. It's mostly my own doing. I was shy and lacked self confidence. I was intimated by the rich popular kids. The nerds didn't like me either. I didn't fit in. I was a loner. The education was good. I learned things. I went to a good private university in the east. Learned how to be social. Got a doctorate. I think the environment has a lot to do with how successful a person can be. If I am uncomfortable in a class because I had no friends in it. Why wasn't I allowed to switch into a different class? If the few friends I have are in a different lunch period, why can't I switch lunch periods? But would things have mattered at the end? I still became a doctor despite the lack of a social life in high school. I missed out on the memories.
