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.

The high schools in the district offer a lot of concurrent enrollment courses that give students a great opportunity to take a lot of courses as college credits that count as generals especially within MN State School system. This can help aid with high schoolers to be more prepared when they enroll in college full time and be closer or go right into taking their major course requirements. The school promotes this as well as develop a four plan as a freshman to be prepared, to set goals and to promote success.
Staff will push you to be the best and achieve that 4.0 GPA with extracurriculars and a steady job outside of school but they don't give you any tools to balance that. The teachers are kind and always willing to help. The teachers understand your stressful schedule a lot more than the staff do. The school board wants to address our growing suicide rate but they keep doing so with quick fixes that don't actually work (like bringing in a speaker once a year and having a counselor only after someone has died). The academics are great with plenty of opportunity for greatness but the overall culture breeds depression and anxiety for students who think they will never be good enough.
