Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District Reviews

The MVLAUHSD is very supportive of all aspects of a student's life- whether it would be financially supporting the athletic department or the performing arts, offering new elective courses that could possibly benefit the student, or providing stress relief activities, known as Spartan Pause, during finals week. It has been a great experience overall in this district, and I am proud to say I was a part of the MVLA school district!

I like the school district. They have provided many opportunities for schools more than many others. Our academic classes and electives are plentiful. If you cannot afford sports, music, cheerleading, etc there are many ways that you can get scholarships and fundraisers for each area. The teachers are very supportive to the students. The student activities are well done, but they have changed a couple of policy's that involve how the students can ask others to dances. For example, we are not allowed to ask our dates for the dances by asking in school using creative ways. They feel it will hurt others feelings who are asked. They have always allowed before. This is one example. It is a great school district. I am Commissioner of Homecoming and Junior and Senior Prom this year. My advisor has been supportive and helpful. The disctrict allows the proms to be local one year and out of the County the next. We enjoy the different locals.
As one of the top high schools in the nation, educators know the perfect balance between being personal and professional and thus know how to properly influence and teach their students according to their tailored needs. They offer support on all levels and I can trust the next generation will be in good hands here at MVHS. School life was brimming with enthusiasm and club activities were plentiful. Home to many ethnicities and identities, tolerance is found in all directions at this school. I wouldn't pick any other high school to send my children to.
