Our School


Mountain View's diverse community members are all valued and supported in a collaborative environment.


Mountain View believes all learners can reach individual success through critical thinking and collaboration. Mustangs REACH for success with Respect, Effort, Attitude, Cooperation, and Honesty.

Mountain View Elementary School is located in the central region of Claremont and serves students in grades kindergarten through six following a traditional calendar. Our school serves a very culturally diverse population of 460 students, and this is just one of the things among many, that makes our school special. 

Mountain View was named a California honor roll school for the 2019-2020 presented by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE). All of our teachers are highly qualified and very dedicated to reach each and every student, as they want all students to succeed and achieve at an advanced academic level.  Our classified staff is talented and willing to support the academic success of our students as well.  Students receive instruction not only in the core academic content areas, but also visit the library, Makerspace Lab, and receive lessons in music and art. We are proud to share that Mountain View is the first school in CUSD to implement at Makerspace Lab and a Dual Immersion Program.

Our students learn to be kind to others and this contributes to a safe and positive environment.  At Mountain View we are "Bucket Fillers" and we pride ourselves in working together as a community to be kind and show empathy to others. The California PBIS Coalition, recognized Mountain View for successful PBIS implementation at the GOLD status level, reflecting excellence in the measurement of fidelity as well as efforts in implementing the core features of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.

Mountain View Elementary is a special place, and we hope you and your child will grow together as you become a part of this wonderful school.
