Monta Vista High School is apparently the holy grail of high schools for Asian parents--for that reason, they are now really strict about verifying your residency in order to register. (In the past, people would try all kinds of things to get their kids enrolled). The highly competitive atmosphere at MV is hard on a lot of the kids, and has probably resulted in many a inferiority complex. On the other hand, I think MV does help kids develop a higher sense of motivation as well as prepare them for the real world. I feel sorry for people who come out of easy high schools at the top of their class thinking that they're all set in life, only to find out that there are--gasp--actually people better than them out there. Monta Vista teaches you that you can get a 1550 on your SATs and still not get into Harvard because there are 10 other people in your class who got 1600s. No, I'm not bitter...

Monta Vista High is quite a tough school to attend. It is ranked quite high in the nation and the environment there is definately one of much academic competition. However, there is also a healthy blend of other activities and sports. Not very diverse in culture (majority are asians) however, it does not seem to be much of a problem for students at the school.

Teachers are overall quite good. Most are well educated and have attended good colleges. However, some teachers are known to be greatly disliked by students. Yet, this is not so uncommon in any school.

Monta Vista was voted one of the most prestigious high schools (i think 56 in nation). One of the reasons is because of the diverse school. Majority of school are Asian-Americans. As a result, theres a lot of competition which drives up the kid's standards.

Teachers are very tough in this school. It's no mystery why the GPA of this school is much lower than other Bay Area schools, yet has one of the highest SAT scores.

If you want a tough education. Attend this school
