Mountain View Elementary is a Pre-K-5 Title I school located in northeast Anchorage. We educate approximately 250 students with a staff of 21 classroom teachers, 15 certificated specialists, and numerous para-professional support personnel. Our student population is comprised of multiple racial and ethnic groups who speak a variety of languages. We celebrate diversity in our school and in our neighborhood. We are a Reading First school with strong emphasis on scientifically based reading programs and school-wide reading progress monitoring. Our instruction is data-driven and very effective. In recent years, our school has met the performance standards for Adequate Yearly Progress under the No Child Left Behind Act several times. Math has been an especially strong point for our students and we have fielded several winning Math Derby teams.
At Mountain View Elementary we are dedicated to promoting a safe, productive learning environment in which all students can thrive academically and socially.
