See from reading the other reviews I can see where there coming from, but I totally disagree. I went to Monte Vista and graduated in 97' and can say that the school is a good one, but its what you make of it. The teachers do what they can, and its up to the students to excel and make something of it. Some do well some don't. The school is full of rich kids who don't really have to make anything of themselves because they know there parents will be there. Even though the campus is closed, kids sneak off campus and its kind of crazy. The education is good but parents beware that rich kids are the ones that spoil the kids that come from decent income families!!
Its a great school, don't get me wrong these things happen in every school, just beware this school is known for stuff like this!!

It is very unfortunate that Monte Vista gets such a bad reputation for being a snobby school. In actual aspect, all the people are kind and freindly even though almost every student's family is very wealthy. The staff do a great job at keeping the school's apperance up adn teh overall standards are set pretty high but always acheived. ONe adavantage to this school is that they offer many specific and different classes that can help you advance in a specific area. Such as Architecturial Design or Culinary Arts which can help a student gain more experience in a specifc area. I would have to say though one problem the school has is trash. The amount of trash at the school is horrid right after lunchtime. The maintenence staff there must do a lot of work, because they clean it up quickly and put the school back to its great apperance. Overall Monte Vista is a very unique school that can help your student excel in their schooling and get to a good college.

Its possible to get quality education if your student is *already* motivated and high-performing, but according to my recently-graduated teen, administration pays lip service only to academics and seems to be more concerned about the condition of the sporting grounds. Many excellent teachers, but for your student to get a good education here, he or she must enroll in honors or AP classes, particularly where the humanities are concerned - otherwise, no guarantee that your student will learn to write adequately. Almost halfway into his junior year, my other student has written one critical paper in his entire high school career. Sizeable percentage of students applying to Cal state system had to take remedial writing.
