Mountain View is a Pre-K through 8th grade school that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics into everything we do. We are an AdvancED STEAM certified school!
In all content areas, students learn to use the Engineering Design Process to solve real-world problems, design and evaluate their solutions. All of our students apply the content skills they have mastered in class to solve new challenges that arise from a rapidly changing world. Our students are taught to be creators, collaborators, communicators, and critical thinkers.
Each grade level and program implements STEAM units that include Business Marketing, Digital Communication, and Engineering. Students have a variety of opportunities to showcase their work: STEAM Community Nights, Shark Tank Competitions, Robotic Competitions, Science Olympiad, Skills USA, State Competitions, District and School level activities. Most importantly, students and staff build STEAM partnerships to enhance their learning and purposeful productivity.
By engaging students in the literacy and skills of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, Mountain View prepares future Dysart graduates in their pursuit of STEAM careers, a future workforce, and higher levels of education.
The Mountain View family consistently sets high expectations for the quality of STEAM education through maintaining a safe and productive learning environment.
