What Teachers Are Saying

What Teachers Are Saying

What Are Monte Vista Teachers and Our Principal Saying?

"The academic reputation of MVHS is known throughout the college admissions community, and the high regard would not be possible without these extra sections." Jenyth Utchen, English.

“The Math department is fortunate to work in a community that values education.  The continued support from Academic Boosters has allowed us to reduce class sizes at all levels while expanding our course offerings to address 21st century needs.” Beverly Davies, Yvonne Spilker, Math.

Thanks to the ongoing generosity of the Monte Vista parent community and through the efforts of our Academic Boosters, we are able to provide a local funding source that provides our students with additional academic sections which in turn creates lower class sizes. Your donation to Academic Boosters has a direct connection to providing your student and the students in your community a quality education." Dr. Kevin Ahern, Principal.
