uniquely mountain view
A number of things make Mountain View different. First and foremost is our focus on Jesus Christ. We want our students and their families to love the Lord and live in the assurance of His salvation. We also want to help you develop children of the highest character: children who are kind, gentle, and have a love for their neighbor as well as a love for learning.
Our school offers a variety of opportunities to develop well-rounded students with the skills and abilities to enjoy athletics, art, music, and drama. Click the items below to learn more about these opportunities, understand our policies, and see what makes us who we are...and our students who they are.
We value all aspects of student development. From spiritual and academic, to the artistic and athletic, our students have opportunities to grow, develop, and pursue their interests.
We offer a variety of competitive sports teams as a member of the Red Rock Athletic Conference.
Art is taught in all grades.
Curricular and extra-curricular music options include music class for all grades as well as a band, choir, and bell choir.
In addition to serving one another and building school-wide friendships, our students are excited to serve those beyond their own campus. We hear the Gospel message every day in the classroom and every week at chapel. Then, from family connections to community events to international missions, our students don’t just see what it means to share the love of Jesus,
they do it.
There is a lot of buzz about technology in schools, and it is certainly a great tool. But we believe technology to be just that - a great tool. Not the great tool. Thus, we ensure that our fifth graders are well-equipped to enter a middle school setting with one-to-one technology, keeping an iPad cart in the room for age-appropriate activities. And we teach skills in word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations to all elementary grades.
Even more importantly, we foster face-to-face interactions, allot weekly library time, and encourage social-emotional development in every single classroom, at every age level.
There are many wonderful ways to learn, grow, and develop. At Mountain View Lutheran School, we aim to encompass a wide variety of those methods and nurture a child's natural enjoyment of exploration and activity.
One of our school parents said her favorite thing about Mountain View Lutheran was walking the halls with her son after he had attended preschool, and hearing countless elementary students greet him by name.
Our students regularly interact with other grades, assisting as "homework buddies," coming together for daily prayer and pledges, reading to younger students, and assisting with service projects.
Classroom activities encourage an educational community that crosses the halls and builds seemingly unlikely friendships. By the time these students enter fifth grade, they are proud to watch over the little kids and take them under their wing. A foundation for and excitement about service is nurtured in such a natural way, that kids discover it is something they want to do.
You may have a church family. You may be part of ours. Or perhaps you don't currently have one, or never have. No matter your situation, the congregation at Mountain View Lutheran Church is OUR family. The church loves and supports this ministry materially, through their time, and in regular prayer. You will see their faces at events, at our annual fundraising gala, and even as classroom volunteers.
Pastor Derek is here to serve the needs of the parents and kids at the school, and is available for family needs, pastoral support, answering your questions, and a friendly smile as he pops in and out of classrooms.
Don't hesitate to lean on this family of believers. We are all here for one another - connecting, caring, and sharing through Christ.
OUR GOAL at Mountain View is to bring the saving grace of Christ to His people. Through weekly worship, small group studies, family activities, youth group, Sunday School, and fellowship, 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.
