Mar Vista Middle School Reviews
I personally think it's a good school. The teachers are great, they really care, and they have great electives and couldn't really choose in the beginning of the school year.
This school is truely magnificent. I lived between Mar Vista Middle and South West Middle and honestly, I wanted to go to South West, but simply because I wanted to follow a former sweetheart. My Mom made me go to Mar Vista because of personal issues, and I really enjoyed it. I was alongside many companions, new and old, whome cared about me. The teachers were outstandingly dedicated, devoted, experienced, and actually cared about their students and treat the class as family. I experienced my best years in Mar Vista Middle School and do not regret attending that awesome school.
I am very dissapointed with this school. I have left a message for 2 administrators to call me back and have not recieved a phone call back. Unfortunately this is the closet school for my child to attend. If there was a closer school I would have my child attend another school.
