    "My overall experience at Mount View High School wasn't the greatest, but it wasn't terrible. I am thankful that I am able to attend Mount View High school, but I wish things would change. Coming from Mount View High School in McDowell County we are overlooked and considered the worst school of them all because of the many opportunities in surrounding counties aren't provided to us. Living in McDowell County has its benefits, but it also has its downfalls. Many students have high potential and can succeed, but fail to realize it because of where we live. I wish other counties in our state would realize that just because we live in McDowell county doesn't mean we can't succeed. My goal is to succeed and let students in McDowell County know that we can make it out and you can do whatever you put your mind to."

    "This school is not known as a great school by outsiders. I personally love this school. If you go to class and do what you're suppose to do then it truly is an amazing experience. This school is small so everyone knows everyone."

    "The teachers at my school are very involved. Although, we NEED teachers! Most teachers come to my school and leave after a year or two due to location. This leaves us with substitutes."

    "My high school is not the best nor is it the worst, but they are very unorganized. Even so, I wouldn't change a thing. I've met some great people here, people who have changed my life forever, and if it was for this unorganized school, we might not have met."

    "Although the school itself isn't as bad as people say it is. as rumors about how there's fighting every single day, people getting murdered, and even students attacking teachers have been spread, my experience with it is overall poor.. We have a principal that actively works against students trying to graduate, we have cooks that knowingly serve us moldy breakfast food, we have teachers that are actively bullied by the administration staff of our school, the students are hardly told any news, the underclassmen misbehave, and the teachers are blamed for the faults of the students. This school, overall, was not a very pleasant experience, and I long to graduate from this place. I actually want to make a future for myself, despite the administration actively trying to ruin our lives. They make up rules as the school year goes along, yet they never enforce them. They completely deny us from having any fundraisers trying to build up funds for our graduation, yet they expect us to help support any fundraisers the middle school side of my school offers. They put kids that should not be in honors in honors classes, and they refuse to buy books for my dual credit math class. Our principal actually throws away the majority of food most kids bring from home, yet they expect us to eat moldy garbage. Mount View High School of Welch, West Virginia is not a good place, and the teachers are its only saving grace."
