About This School

Glendale Unified School District built this school to enroll students from Monte Vista and Montrose to decrease their large enrollments.
Teachers applied from all over the district to help open the first year - 1967.
The parents were outstanding as we started many new programs and activities. We had a view of Catalina on clear days.
Student achievement was very high as they were highly motivated by the strong teachers and parent groups.
The students moved on to Rosemont Middle School and were able to assume leadership roles there.
It was an exciting school and a pleasure to be the first principal.

Mountain Avenue Elementary School Reviews

By , a Parent on

My daughter was very hyper active, so the school wanted to hold her back in the third grade. I asked if the district would test her for dyslexia. They refused, and blamed me for not doing a good enough job as a Mother. I was stunned and hurt. I loved the teachers and the general atmosphere, but if your child needs extra help, the GUSD simply won't help. Regardless, we all have fond memories of Mnt. Ave.

The school teacher and all the staffs are nice and care about students development.  My son has transferred several schools.  This one is the best one.
