    Overall Experience: I had a really great time at this school. As long as you can bare the classic cliques of hs then you'll be fine here. The high class made it nice to live up to

    Overall Experience: I do like Mountain View but mostly just for learning. There are so many advanced and honors classes that give students the chance to test their knowledge and commitment. There are so people that are nice but then there are some that aren't. Even though bullying instead that bad in the school, I still feel criticized by my peers. The main problem is people will make fun of you if you aren't outgoing or smart. I get made fun of for being shy and awkward. Still, I would say that this school has taught me some valuable life lessons that I will use in the future. If I had to choose a school to attend if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't. I believe things happen for a reason even if they aren't always enjoyable, so I know that wouldn't change my experience at Mountain View because that's how it is suppose to be.
