    Welcome to Mountain View High School, Home of the Mountain Lions!

     

    I am excited to begin the school year and to meet the students, staff, parents and community who make up Mountain View.

     

    My first commitment to you is to listen and learn, fostering my overall goal of understanding the culture of Mountain View, the traditions that have made MVHS a quality place to learn, and the ways in which we may work together to elevate Mountain View.  The Google definition of “elevate” is to “raise or lift up to a higher position”. What I know about MVHS in my short time here so far is that it is already a very good high school which is respected in the area and beyond. However, working together, we will ELEVATE MVHS to be truly great!

     

    On behalf of the staff of MVHS, I invite you to embrace new challenges and celebrate our successes. Our efforts this year will be to work together with stakeholders to make a positive difference by setting high standards for students and adults alike, by providing support to ensure successes and to learn from failures, and by assessing and improving school climate and culture. We do this while also focusing on the development of career and college ready graduates who will be successful citizens of the world around them.

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Jane Harmon, Principal
