About the School
Mountain View Arts & Technology High School offers flexible scheduling, accelerated credit earning and credit retrieval opportunities, personal connections between staff and students, and future focused instruction. Mountain View Arts & Technology is a place that is student centered, safe, accepting of everyone, and a place where students feel that they belong. It is a place that provides respect, relationships, and relevance to the real world.
What makes Mountain View Arts & Technology unique is that we operate on a three trimester, five period day. Each trimester runs 12 weeks in duration. This schedule provides students the opportunity to earn up to 7.5 credits per year. Each trimester class is the equivalent of a full semester class and two trimesters of an academic course is equivalent to a full year course.
Math and AVID courses run all three trimesters. All 9th and 10th grade students are enrolled in AVID. Students are provided time during the school day to support the completion of their graduation required High School and Beyond Plan in Naviance.
Mountain View Arts & Technology also provides students the opportunity to earn and retrieve credit in a variety of settings, including Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) courses. Students who complete the application to enroll in an ALE course need to be self-motivated and self-directed.ALE course students are required to participate in 27.5 hours of weekly learning activities both in and out of school and have direct communication with their instructors on a weekly basis. Student progress is evaluated monthly per WAC 392-121-107. All MVA&T students may apply to enroll in ALE courses.
We are not an “alternative school”, but rather a “choice school” with more options for students. Those options will still include access to extra-curricular programs in partnership with Marysville Pilchuck High School, i.e.; NJROTC, School House Cafe, sports, etc.
