    Administration & Policies: The school administration is inept at punishment. A group of students participated in a large cheating scandal and no punishment was given, but a few students were rowdy at a dance, so our school no longer holds Sadie's. They seem to be learning as they go, but it is at the expense of the students.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Mountain View is like a family; everyone has a place here, and they can be friends with literally anyone.

    Food: The burritos are always soggy and everything is fat free, but the pizza isn't bad. I also like the mashed potato bowls and the orange chicken.
