Mounds View Public School District Reviews

The school is very academically focused. However this focus gets in the way of student life. I found myself being overly stressed all my years here, however the strong academics make me feel as though I'll be more prepared for college. I've had some amazing teachers though, they've really supported me and overall been very informative. The school doesn't focus much on arts and music, they're always second chair to any kind of academics or sports. I can't speak much for sports as I haven't been apart of any, but they seem alright from the outside. As far as math and science go, there are lots of options. There are so many math and science courses, you couldn't take them all in four years. I've learned quite a bit in my time here. Though administration is helpful I feel as though most are too busy for students. Lots of kids here struggle with the overload of academics and lack of social life. But most are glad to be here and have such a comprehensive education.

The Mounds View Public School District provides students with so many opportunities. Along with getting an amazing education, I have been a part of unique extracurriculars and programs that have helped me grow as a person. The teachers and students are all very hard-working and while specifically, Mounds View High School's environment can become tense and stressful at times, the district is nevertheless excellent.
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.
