School Reviews

5  3/9/2007
Mount View High School is one of the best schools I've ever went to. The teahers are understanding, the faculty and staff are polite, and the extracurricular activites are outstanding. The arts program is small but extraodinary. Parents are involved in school activites. I would recommend this school to anyone.
