We offer a depth and breadth of programs and supports to meet the unique learning needs and interests of an increasingly diverse population. We focus on personalizing the learning experience so that each student is engaged, inspired and learning to their full potential.

Teaching & Learning

Parents Are Our Partners

Parents at Mount View School often show an interest in their child’s topic of study and often expand the project with books, family outings, lessons, selected TV programs and related activities. A great technique is having your child “teach” you.

How Parents Support Learning at Mount View School

Here are ways in which the School Council and the Staff of Mount View School think that parents can provide this support:

  • Ensure that children attend school regularly and punctually.
  • Send children to school properly rested, nourished, groomed and dressed.
  • Contact the school when it is necessary for children to be absent or to arrive late.
  • Base all staff/parent contacts on mutual respect.
  • Keep staff current with information they need to understand each child’s behavior and learning needs.
  • Keep aware of children’s educational programs and progress.
  • Check agenda daily for communication from the school.
  • Participate in parent conferences and other programs for parents organized by the school.
  • Actively encourage children to recognize the importance of the school and learning.
  • Support and encourage respect for the school’s expectations for student behavior.
  • Keep informed regarding your children’s friends and out-of-school activities.
  • Respond to school requests for parent participation with staff in decision-making concerning school policy and practice.
