Welcome to Mountainview!
This handbook has been written for you and for your parents. Please read it carefully. There are many topics discussed which will be vital to your having a good school experience this year.
Mountainview is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools, International (ACSI). Our students are provided with a quality Christian education and are tested regularly using NWEA’s Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) or other standardized testing to ensure that their performance level is comparable to that of their American peers. Our graduates go on to attend universities and colleges in America, South Korea, Europe, Canada, Australia and elsewhere.
The curriculum at Mountainview is American, with a Christian foundation and using materials from both Christian and secular publishers. In addition to the core curriculum of English, math, science, social studies and Ethics, we offer fine arts, physical education, life skills and various elective classes to broaden our students’ knowledge and experience.
To help students learn better and to provide other means of assessment in addition to tests and quizzes, our teachers provide a variety of activities, projects, and papers as appropriate to the subject matter and the students’ age.
Bible reading, scripture memory, and prayer are a part of life at Mountainview. In view of this an applicant should consider the following items:
- Enrollment in the school constitutes an agreement by the parents and the student to participate in Christian teaching and activities.
- All instruction at Mountainview is Christian in nature but non-denominational.
- All students must actively participate in Ethics classes, chapel, devotions, Bible memory work, and other religious activities of the school.
