Mission Statement: ”Teaching effectively, learning successfully, connecting with our community.”
Mountain View High School is all about CONNECTIONS…connections among students and teachers, connections among teachers of one discipline with teachers of anotherdiscipline, and the whole school with Loveland private and business communities. MVHS is the newest high school in the district and was built as a center-based ultra-modern school, broken into smaller learning communities. We also offer parents of freshmen a special back-to-school night each September. MVHS staff takes great pride in their ability to establish caring relationships with students, because our families and students must, “know how much we care, before they will care how much we know.”
