Mountain View School’s athletics program is designed to incorporate interdisciplinary STEAM units that directly correlate to a variety of sports, including basketball, soccer, volleyball, and softball. Physical education at the middle school level seeks to expose students to a wide range of competitive and non-competitive sports as well as the tools necessary for life-long health and fitness. Students also can participate in extracurricular sports. In the 2021-2022 school year, MVS teams won the district championships in Girls’ Softball and Boys’ Soccer; the Girls’ Soccer and Girls’ Volleyball teams both were runners up in the District tournament; and the 3rd-4th grade boys’ cross country team placed third at the District championship.
To try out for Mountain View’s athletic program, all students are required to submit a signed district athletic permission form and a signed parent-guardian waiver.
One a student has been named to one of Mountain View’s teams, students must submit signed paperwork from the Middle Level Parent Athlete Code of Conduct and must complete an online concussion education course. These forms, along with the complete sports season schedules, can be found on the District’s Middle Level Sports website.
For students participating in middle level sports, there is a $60 non-refundable tax credit pay-to-participate fee that must be paid prior to the student participating in the season.
