I’ve had, overall, a great experience at my school! Teachers and staff really care about our futures and about us reaching our goals. There’s an atmosphere of “no man left behind”. Also, our school has so many ways to get involved and follow your passions. There have been teachers here and there that haven’t been my favorite—but the amazing teacher outweigh the not-so-amazing ones.

Mountain View has, overall, been a great school! The staff is very welcoming and usually very willing to do whatever is necessary to help their students. In terms of the student body, the majority of people are involved in school spirit and that makes going to Mountain View so much fun. I, personally, was involved in sports and that also made my experience at the school so fantastic.
I liked the variety of classes I could take. There were classes with different difficulty levels. I liked attending games, but the students were sometimes rude. Many students were not friendly to those different from them; however, I learned to make many friends that didn't care that you practiced a different religion. I enjoyed going to class because teachers were enthusiastic, funny, and caring. I enjoyed all my teachers I had and loved how they pushed me to do my best. It was nice when they had one lunch for everyone. The one lunch allowed students to go to their teachers and ask questions during lunch. Since I was a student-athlete, I wouldn't have time to go talk to teachers after school, but the hour-long lunch allowed me to get a lot of work done and gave me time to talk to teachers. The teachers were willing to help everyone during lunch and would answer everyone's questions.
