Mount View High School is in a rural area in Maine, making it not as diverse as it could be. Although, what it lacks in diversity, it makes up for in the teachers clubs, sports and food.
Mount View has some of the best teachers in the state and probably in the country. They truly care about the students and their education. The clubs at Mount View range from Envirothon to student council. Everyone can find a place to fit in. The sports teams are on the rise for Mount View High School. Our football program is quite new, but it is going places extremely quickly. Our basketball and field hockey programs are also quite excellent. The food at Mount View High School is the most loved. When people who visit Mount View are asked what their favorite part was, most will say, "The food."

Mount View High school gave me ability to participate in some college classes which will enhance my learning in the future. There were however, only few teachers who would teach actually teach the material in a manner which would allow a student to fully absorb the information. In the majority of my classes I had to teach myself about the topics. I think the school should make an investment in teachers who know the material they are supposed to teach.
They’re very helpful if you’re willing to do the best you academically can. Their music program is amazing, and they offer a lot of dual enrollment classes that allow students to get college and high school credit for free. Their resources are excellent and they constantly have people coming in to speak with the student populous to help them figure out where they want to go or what they might want to do
