Monta Vista High School Reviews
I attended from 1998-2002 and liked it well enough. It is a very academic high school, lots of smart kids and teachers. We have athletic teams that range from pretty bad to excellent. The student population has a lot of very outgoing people who are willing to found/attend/organize lots of clubs, activities and the like. I'd definitely recommend MV, the classes might be tough, but you learn a lot and I felt those classes prepared you very well for college level courses.
This school is very good. Only teachers need to emphasise more on the importance of STAR test scores.
