In the Mountain View School District our mission is to inspire each student to succeed every day and ensure that each student attains or exceeds academic proficiency. MVSD’s 12 schools, alternative education center and Children’s Center/Head Start program are strongly committed to high expectations and improved student achievement at all grade levels.
MVSD is comprised of an excellent team of educators and support staff who believe in each student’s ability to achieve. Our team is dedicated to preparing today’s students and tomorrow's leaders for success by providing core academics with 21st century skills. Through innovative instruction students are encouraged to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, good communicators and collaborators, technology literate, innovative, creative, and globally competent.
A college-bound culture is promoted district-wide among all students and with our parents through a variety of programs including GEAR Up, the Partnership Scholars Program, Parent Institute for Quality Education and No Excuses University, all focused on inspiring future collegiate scholars.
In Mountain View, our strength lies in our highly qualified employees, rigorous curriculum, dedicated parents and caring community, each focused on the educational development of our students, providing them with a solid foundation of skills they may take forward into our ever changing world.
