Student, Mountain View High School, Class of 2018,
I'm not going to lie. I love Mountain View but it's definitely got some flaws. If you're looking for a lot of really challenging classes to get ahead and ready for college, Mountain View probably isn't the place for you. Don't get me wrong I am definitely a college bound student and a lot of our students work really hard, but most teachers don't have the highest standards set for their students. Most Mountain View students are average. Even in my honors and AP classes there aren't a lot of really outgoing, very intelligent students. A lot of us just do our best. If there's anything I know about our student body, it's that we know what we expect of ourselves. Some of us are high achievers and will work our hardest in any class to get that A. A lot of students stay in normal classes and that's great, perfectly fine. Even though they don't move as fast as advanced classes, they still have to work hard to pull off the grade they want, and if they don't then they know what the consequences are.
