What I like about Mountain View High is that everyone knows each other. We all grew up together, we know everyone's embarrassing stories and it really connects everyone. Everyone has the same thoughts and it can be very easy to find a friend that has the same political ideas as you. Friends are every where for you to find and I appreciate that when you need someone they are always there for you. My experience in Mountain View has been amazing, the teachers are always supporting everyone and always try their best to explain their subject to you. Some even are willing to help you with homework that you may not understand. My teachers and also telling me which classes I should take if I want to be able to take less classes throughout college.

Being a student in Mountain View High School has been a great experience. Everyone is very understanding and compassionate about what they do. The teachers at our school are a great help, especially the counselors. On our first day of school, everyone opens their arms and it’s heartwarming how they welcome you. The only thing that I would like to be see to be changed, is the amount of parent involvement. Not many parents are involved and they are clueless about what kids do at times. But overall being in this high school has been amazing. There are so many great teachers and a great administration, from the custodians to the teachers, everyone is very kind. Mountain View high school, makes you feel safe. If I could tell anyone that wants to continue school, here at our school, I would support their decision. They have a wide range of programs, from sports, to band, to journalism. Every student has an opportunity at something.
This school is a tad slow to adapt new ideas. As an individual who loves the arts, I can say that some departments such as choir, guitar and art really need attention. This school has an outstanding band that has earned a reputation for itself through hard work. The IT department is also an incredible strength for Mountain View. Our BPA team has won nationals a couple of times in the Network Design Team event, beating some of the best schools around who have better resources. All in all the best thing about this school is its teachers. I attribute this school's success to them and their hard work. Mountain View has areas that it needs to improve, but the instructors that I have met here have without a doubt changed my life which fills me with pride to be a lobo!
