Mountview Vision and Mission Statement

 

 

Mountview Middle School believes that all educational and school related decisions should be based upon the divergent needs and uniqueness of the early adolescent.

 

I. We believe in:

  • Helping students develop and improve their critical thinking skills.
  • Helping students understand the principles and responsibilities of a democratic society including respect of others and the world around them.
  • Helping students understand and successfully cope with the mental, physical, emotional and social changes they are experiencing as preadolescents and adolescents.
  • Providing a safe and supportive environment free from harassment and intimidation.
  • Developing a student’s sense of self-discipline, self-respect, and self-reliance.

 

II. We believe:

  • Each student is capable of learning and should be held to high expectations.
  • Students must be actively involved in acquiring and applying skills, knowledge and attitudes.
  • Our curriculum should be integrated and not separated by single subject boundaries.
  • Our instructional strategies must be diverse and emphasize active learning.
  • A variety of assessment strategies that measure clearly defined outcomes are an integral part of the process. 

 

Our aim is to prepare young adolescents to be successful, productive and contributing members of our changing, global society.
