  • Even with my child in kindergarten her teacher is taking her own time to work with the children on a higher level, after class. I love Monte Vista, all the interactions with the teachers and staff I have are great. Even with two other highly recommended schools in the district, to which I feel are overrated, I am proud to have my child enrolled at Monte Vista and would never transfer her. She is learning life skills as well as retaining the highest level of academics for children.

  • Teachers work extraordinarily hard for their students, and provide numerous chances for their students to be exposed to the arts and sciences.
