Mounds View Public School District Reviews

MV prioritizes test scores over grades! We moved our child to Chippewa in 7th grade. Prior to that she had been at a parochial school. Because of her low-test scores in math (60-70%) her newly hired dean recommended she take regular math. This was a mistake as 7th grade was essentially a repeat (my child received all As, all semesters in middle school math). Then we made the mistake of taking Mounds View's testing. Again, she scored at or just below the 70% mark. And was arbitrarily placed in a College Seminar class to improve her math abilities. Unless your child is scoring below the 50% mark on the tests, or is struggling with grades it is a waste of time. The teachers and program administrator do not know what to do to fill the hours. MV has set my child back an entire year in math and wasted an hour where she could have been earning credits. If I could go back, I would have waited until 9th grade to enroll my child and exempted her from taking their tests.

I enjoyed the level of rigor at Mounds View Public School, as well as the abundance of extracurricular activities to participate in. My only complaint would be that, at the time when I was a student at Mounds View High School, there was not much support for students struggling with mental health. Nowadays, I see the district making strides to equip students with the tools that they need to combat school, social, and family altogether.
For the most part, I found good friends, but the teachers wasted a lot of time trying to get set up or the lesson or would give us busy work. There were only 4 good teachers out of all the 4 years I have been there. The focus of MVHS is on sports and business or the physical aspect of the school. They aren't improving on education as much as I expected during the senior year. Turtle lake and Chippewa were amazing, just the high school experience wasn't that good.
