Outstanding people have one thing in common: An absolute sense of mission.

The mission of Mountain View Montessori is to provide a child-centered, individualized, grade K-7 education founded upon the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. MVM will foster a structured environment of freedom and discovery in which each child can reach his or her full academic, social, and personal potential. Graduates of MVM will demonstrate creative thinking, self-discipline, respect, and cooperation, and will build a solid foundation for future success.

Educational Program

The educational philosophy and methods of instruction supporting MVM’s mission and distinguishing its program include the following, each of which maps specifically to the Goals & Objectives hereinafter enumerated:

  • Individualized & Differentiated Learning
  • Mixed-age Groupings
  • Integrated Teaching & Learning
  • Prepared Environment
  • Role of Teachers to Observe, Guide & Assess
  • Classroom Environment of Respect & Character Education

The Mountain View Montessori environment and curriculum will thus be based on the freedom of a highly individualized and self-directed education within the specifically “prepared environment” of vertical (multi-age) classrooms, specialized didactic materials, careful teacher observation and guidance, and a strong commitment to the values of self-discipline and respect. MVM’s educational program will likewise include frequent opportunities for parental involvement, regular and specific assessment of progress, and ongoing web-based reporting.  Assessment and reporting take place within a structure of explicit alignment between the Montessori curriculum and the Utah Common Core Standards.
