    "The teachers are very supportive and no matter how much you ask they keep on pushing you to achieve your goals. They have a very enthusiastic way on teaching classes they always on their top and best mood. All my questions are answered. They always listen to what the student has to say and pretty much base how they teach us by asking what should be the rules in class. Grading they are strict about it but it is reasonable."

    "I love the aura of this because it's always active when it comes to physical activities everyone participates and what would make me go back is just the fact that the school spirit is always uplifted mostly on football events."

    "Just like at any school, the teachers and their instruction styles differ, and always will. In my time at MVHS, the event that stands out the most in my memory is a town hall-style meeting that was called with the school board to discuss a controversial article written in The Oracle, MVHS's student newspaper. The very small article in question was written by one of my good friends, who has since continued to engage the public in difficult but important conversations. In the Valentine's Day edition of The Oracle, my friend wrote a short piece about the myths of sex, the importance of birth control, and where to find it. A small handful of parents were outraged by the article and called for the student-run newspaper to be dismantled. At the meeting with the school board, which was held in MVHS's theater, a large number of students and parents came out to defend the article in question and support the newspaper. I remember one parent dedicating her allotted 2 minutes of speaking time to simply applauding the students who worked long hours to put out The Oracle regularly. Nothing much came of this meeting, but for me the whole event sums up what was important to me about Mountain View High School: brave students, supportive peers and students, and the willingness of the administration and school board to handle the issue in a constructive way. My younger brother is coming up on his senior year at MVHS, and I know the student body is still comfortable voicing their concerns and engaging their peers and the administration in issues that they find important."
