“Inspiring Success”

Mountain View has a positive classroom and school climate where students and parents feel welcome. The strength of the school is its staff members, who create the positive school/classroom environment. Mountain  View has implemented a continuous improvement  process with teams targeting reading, math, writing and school safety. Mountain View uses Title 1 funds to better differentiate  instruction and provide support to teachers to impact the learning of students in their classroom. Co-teaching and support staff is utilized in all grade levels to meet student needs.


Reading and behavior are the main focus at Mountain  View. To address the needs in Reading, we have established a reading framework that includes whole group instruction, small group instruction and independent work time, all of which are aligned with Common Core and are based off students’ needs. Our Math program is a combination of My Math and Bridges to deliver the standards. It stretches students’ problem-solving and communication abilities.  All students also receive a minimum of 30 minutes each day of Rtl time.  This is based off of needs in either intervention or enrichment activities. For the area of behavior we have implemented Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) as our main support. It allows for consistency for students and establishes expectations. Zones of Regulation helps students be more self aware of their feelings. This will allow them to use the appropriate strategies to get their bodies and minds ready to learn.


Students may participate in after-school tutoring. Clubs available each year are based on student interest and participation. Fourth and fifth graders may participate in volleyball and basketball through the Casper Recreation Center. Fifth graders have the option of joining Band/Orchestra. We also have several Family Nights throughout  the school year.


Preschool teachers meet with each prospective family individually. Half of the preschool population must meet income eligibility requirements.


Classes at Mountain View run from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Playground is opened and supervised from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
