curriculum

It is our goal to help all children develop an understanding and love for their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ while learning the skills they need to succeed both now and in the future. Mountain View Lutheran School has adopted elements of Core Knowledge, Common Core State Standards, Nevada State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards as the foundations for the written curriculum in Preschool through Grade 5.

 

KINDERGARTEN

Kindergarten at Mountain View Lutheran School is a reading and writing program with emphasis on phonics, reading readiness, developmental thinking, mathematical relationships, religion, and beginning science and social studies concepts.

Children also continue to develop skills in relationship-building and maintaining a positive attitude towards learning in a more structured school setting, which includes the developing of personal responsibility. This developmental process requires parent and teacher dedication and consistent communication.

Grades 1-5
The education of the child in the elementary grades is based on the need for a firm foundation of basic knowledge to further develop the tools necessary to function successfully in the broadened scope of education. Each classroom is self-contained, with the classroom teacher responsible for instruction in all of the core subject areas. Departmentalization in the specialty areas of band, music, visual arts, library, and technology serve to enable the children to have a well-rounded and balanced educational experience, as the classroom and specialty teachers collaborate to more fully enrich learning. All curricular areas are approached from a distinctly Christian point of view and presented using means which make education creative, meaningful, and personal.
The vast majority of students who graduate Mountain View Lutheran have continued their education at Faith Lutheran Middle School, for which MVLS is the only feeder school in this part of Las Vegas. We are proud to send students who are firm in their faith, strong in confidence and character, and well-prepared for the rigors of prestigious high school programs.

ACCREDITATION

Mountain View Lutheran as a whole has obtained several voluntary improvement opportunities via the accreditation processes. With accreditations through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and National Lutheran Schools Accreditation, Mountain View Lutheran will be the first and only school in Nevada accredited through Western Association of Schools and Colleges, leading the way for schools throughout Nevada and the Pacific Southwest District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod to do the same through the rigorous process of accreditation.

OUR GOAL at Mountain View is to bring the saving grace of Christ to His people. Through weekly worship, Bible studies, family activities, Sunday School, fellowship, outreach, and our preschool and elementary school, we aim to teach people about their Savior and surround them with a Cloud of Witnesses - a family of believers to love, support, and encourage them in their faith walk. Together, we enjoy the freedom we have in Christ and the joy found in the knowledge of our eternal salvation. Together we are connecting, caring, and sharing through Christ.
