This town has a problem with poorly named schools and "Bubb" is a perfect example.

Student 1: Where do you go to school?
Student 2: Bubb
Student 1: Oh. Sorry.

Actually Parent, anything besides the name "Bullis" is just fine with us her in MV.

Perhaps the biggest challenge for principals in the MVWSD is whether they are willing to resist the administration when the administration pushes a misguided idea/program. Hopefully Ms. Nguyen will have the fortitude to stand up for her school.

#1) This great news about Ms. Nguyen is not the place for your complaints.

#2) None of the schools in Mtn View are poorly name...just maybe poorly advertised. The names of our schools are named for important people - either in Mtn View itself or life in general. Go to the History Center upstairs in the Mountain View Library and learn about them.
