I moved out here from New York and wasn’t very sure what to expect with Mission Viejo and when I saw it was rated a 4 I was very hesitant to have my daughter go here, but when I registered her the lady at the district office assured me its a great school and that the ratings are parent based so if a lot of parents don’t vote or rate the school it won’t get very high ratings. I’m so glad I took her advice because Mission Viejo is the best thing to happen to my family!!! My daughter started 2nd grade here and she had Mrs. Walz and she’s a fantastic teacher!!!!!! She really treats all the kids with respect and understands that all kids learn differently and she embraced that! Mr. Pearson as the principal I couldn’t ask for a better one! His involvement with every student, parent, staff member is like none other! He knows everyone by name and treats everyone with respect. I wish Mission Viejo went all the way up to 12th grade lol it’s awesome and you won’t regret sending your child here!!!
