Open Quote I've been a student here for 3 years, I love the program and the staff. We started an ASB last year, and we have lots of social events- forget about the stereotype of kids who don't socialize, I see my friends three times a week at school and once or twice away from school. One thing I really like about Mt. Everest is that our motto (Flexibility to Pursue Your Passion) really fits- I have a friend who plays tennis 6 hours a day, planning to go pro. We have low teacher:student ratio, which helps explain why I can use such big words as "stereotype," am taking Junior classes (7 of them!) as a Sophomore, and why our Academic League team beats out almost everyone in the district. This school isn't a perfect for everyone- but I've yet to meet anyone who I wouldn't recommend it to. We don't have the nasty aspects of high school society, we're all very accepting. I know of at least three fellow students who have come here to avoid bullying at other schools- most recently, a junior from Bishops who didn't like the pressure. Before you can say "underachiever," let me point out that UCSD recruited him already. He's just at Mt. Everest to get enough credits to graduate, and then he's off to a University. I consider the school I went to before Mt. Everest to be among the best of its kind, but Mt. Everest is infinitely better. I enjoy going to class, something my other school never achieved. Oh, and relaxed atmosphere seems to be conducive to learning, by the way- we were ranked in the top 5 API scores recently.

Sincerely, etc,
A Student Close Quote

Open Quote Fantastic school! Mr. Rood, the principal is spectacular. This school is a cross between home school and regular school. The curriculum is the same as all San Diego Unified schools, but you can tweak it to fit your needs and likes. Everyone is super helpful and kind. My daughter loves it here so much. Honestly, the best school i have ever known! 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.
