Open Quote I am a student at Mountain View High School, and can confidently say that I am so glad I go here. The teachers are so dedicated and caring towards the education and well-being of their students. The students are so welcoming and kind. I've never seen or heard of any issues of bullying, fighting, etc. MVHS has such a positive vibe all around. Although our academics require hard work, our curriculum and teachers are understanding and allow for students to make amendments to schedules if necessary. I honestly love coming to school and seeing all of my classmates everyday. Lastly, we may not be known as the most spirited school in the area, but that is steadily improving! Students are heavily involved in sports, arts, academics, and other social events! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
