Mountainview highschool is a good learning step, it focuses on opportunities more than specialisation. They provide ample facilities, however, student behaviour is a huge downside (alcohol, ‘swearing’, drugs, vandalism, vaping and also just manners).

It is a very inclusive place, with gender neutral toilets and scheduled hang outs and support groups for the LGBTQ+ community and before covid-19 exchange students also.

All in all Mountainview is a school that allows you to explore all your strengths and give you a large pool of working skills, although it has its downsides, which all schools have.

mountie review

honestly the year 9 and 10 classes are a poor excuse for “learning”, the teachers are fantastic however the curriculum they have to teach isn’t challenging and is boring for the more academically capable students. they’re are a lot of issues around the school and not a lot of focus on the big issues more focus on uniform than the actual important things.

Yr 9 and 10 modules are not good but in yr 11 its better. Most teachers are really kind and caring. Some you can have a bit of a laugh with. Smoking and drugs and sex is still a problem but not as bad. Wouldn't reccomend if you kid wants to go to uni or something as there isnt as many opportunities
