Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District Reviews
Although I am only a junior, I feel like the past 3 years have been an average experience for me. In my first 2 years, I had mostly 'average' or 'poor' faculty members, specifically to an extent where I had to file complaints on them. Those teachers treated us on how much they liked them. One teacher even admitted that they only work here since it's high paying. I have heard my friends talking about their school counselors, and how they don't really seem to be doing their work. The district doesn't seem to be checking and replacing their teachers often, and that seems to be the reason why problems (ex. involving Mountain View High School's math teacher's arrest, Los Altos High School badminton team's coach's arrest, etc.). The school is not pressurizing towards students on grades (which is a good thing!). There are many things that students can get involved in, and the resources we have are great. We have a great college and career counselor, and my school counselor is amazing.
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!
Probably one of the best high schools I've attended. They really give the students the opportunity to grow. I love that I got to choose weather I wanted to take honors or AP classes. Other schools I went to you had to be tested or you have to be in a program that allowed you to took the advance classes. It is always a really interactive school. So many cool club. Great teachers. They provide guidance for what ever the student want to do after high school. I've learned so much from my peers alone about their culture and belief. People come from all over the world. I've meet people from Germany, Belgium, Spain, China, and so much more.
