I am currently a senior at Mountain View High School, and let me tell you this is an excellent school that offers vocational programs to students. Thanks to my outstanding school, I have been able to get certified in Medical billing and coding, and I am currently working on getting a nursing assistant and phlebotomy certification. This school gives you much assistance to help build your future, and I am glad to attend Mountain View High School.

Mountain View High School has a unique way when directing its student to a path of success. As the school grows so do the programs. Currently being enrolled in the Health Profession Academy (HPA) as an Emergency Medical Technician student i have been given the chance to shadow doctors and nurses at The Hospital of Providence early October of 2019. By this incredible experience, I was fortunate to witness a c-section, a stroke, how to apply a EKG, a patient with an amputated finger to seeing how it was stitched back, and many more to count. From this opportunity, it made my love for medicine grow deeper and being part of the medical field is something I would love to do.
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.
