Academics

Mountain View staff members believe student success is achieved through collaborative decision making between all stakeholders.  The shared knowledge of district curriculum and effective instruction will allow for each member to grow professionally through meaningful dialogue.  Teachers will strive to share successful instructional practices to deepen their understanding of curricular concepts.  Professional development is vital to the continued growth of the school community.
