Welcome to Mountain View Elementary. A Great Place to Learn!
Mountain View was founded in 1979. We are proud of our heritage and have a history of excellence within our community. We are a grade three through five intermediate school and serve a diverse student population of approximately 370 students and their families. Mountain View is a small school environment and we are proud of the fact that our smaller school population helps us to know our students and families better. Together with our partner school, Tozer Primary, we are a campus that is committed to the highest levels of student engagement, educating the whole child in an environment that is safe and effective.
The vision of the Tozer/Mountain View Campus is to be a Project-Based Learning Community where all individuals collaborate to foster student learning in a safe and respectful environment.
We are committed to providing profound learning opportunities for every child every day. Our broad based and rigorous curriculum is aligned to the Colorado State Model Content Standards. Our achievement scores are above the state average in every category. "Investigations" is the core of our math instruction, where we encourage every child to act, think, and write like mathematicians. Students develop 21st Century Skills in our classrooms, and in our state of the art technology lab. We educate the whole child in an engaging and safe learning environment committed to the principles of respect for self, others, and learning.
Our mission is to develop learners who contribute to our community. We instill independence, curiosity, problem solving skills, citizenship, and the ability to communicate and collaborate with others.
