Mountain View Elementary School
Mountain View’s mission is to provide a successful school experience for all students. We believe that this requires a working partnership between the home and the school. Our faculty is committed to building a strong foundation by fostering a positive attitude about academics and encouraging parents and community to be active participants in the education of their children.

Mountain View Highlights

- When the school opened in 1947, it was named Glendale Park Elementary. In the 1970s, a contest was held for the students to help rename the school. Mountain View was chosen because the students could stand on the playground at recess and “view” the mountains on all sides of them.
