Mountain View has a positive classroom and school climate where students and parents feel welcome. Mountain View is a Reading First school. A scientifically based reading program focuses on the five main ideas of reading. The math program is Math Trailblazers, which is a very hands-on and engaging program that stretches students’ problem solving abilities and their ability to communicate effectively about math. The strength of the school is its staff, who create a positive school and classroom climate. Implementation of the BEST positive behavior intervention program is very effective due to the staff’s focus on student success. Mountain View has started the continuous improvement process with teams targeting reading, writing, math and school safety.
The Mountain View Organization for Children (M.V.O.C.) is our parent-teacher organization. Every parent automatically is a member, and there are no dues to the organization. Members include parents, teachers, and interested community members who meet monthly in the evenings. The group works on fundraising projects, including the schoolwide carnival traditionally held in the spring, as well as cookie/pizza sales and room parties on special occasions.
