MVHS in the Spotlight
Mount View High School is proud to present the 2017 "Carols in the Round" schedule for the Mount View High School Chamber Singers.
Mount View High School was proud to welcome Maine State Credit Unions on October 17th. Maine credit unions present a half-day event that targets high school juniors and seniors and is similar to the game of "LIFE," where participating students are given a career and monthly income and then have to visit booths associated with various expenses that the average adult is faced with each month. Costs, such as transportation, housing, clothing, food, student loans, insurance and several other everyday expenses, are filled in on a monthly budget form by each student. At the end of the event, the goal is for students to have a monthly budget that does not exceed monthly income.
Mount View Welcomes Back Students
Mount View High School welcomed back freshman students on Wednesday, August 30th; this was a day filled with presentations and activities. The students began the day with a meet and greet with Mount View High School faculty and staff. Students were then expected to go to their advisories where they were able to meet with their homeroom teachers that they will have over the course of the next four years. In the advisories, students learned of their new lockers and did team building activities directed by their homeroom teacher. Students were given the opportunity to explore the high school, including having the ability to go to each of their eight classes. After lunch students did focus groups with the library, nurses, guidance, and athletics department. Within these focus groups, students learned about the different services Mount View provides. At the end of the day, all 9th-grade students were asked to come to the gym. In the gym, all 9th-grade students participated in a group activity in regards to bullying. Students realized that bullying is a prevalent issue within schools today. Students talked candidly about situations that may have happened to them. Students also talked about ways to prevent future bullying from occurring.
In addition to welcoming back the 9th-grade students, we also welcomed back the 10th through 12th-grade students on Thursday, August 31st. We had the opportunity to discuss with students the changes in the grading procedure brought about by input from students, parents, and faculty. Mount View students seemed excited about the new opportunities that the grading system brings to them. Students and parents can view these changes in the student handbook, available through the main web page for Mount View High School.
We look forward to the exciting, academically rigorous school year ahead.

On October 11th, Mount View High School students took advantage of three different opportunities that were available to them. Our 10th and 11th-grade students took the PSAT in preparation for the SAT that all 11th-grade students must take in the spring. Students diligently took the tests to ensure that they showed off their best. Our 9th-grade students attended Camp Fairhaven. At Camp Fairhaven, 9th-grade students were able to work on their teamwork skills. Students participated in a version of the “Amazing Race”. Lastly, our 12th-grade students attended a senior service day across the county and beyond. The students were able to help the program MOFGA, the homeless shelter, local elementary schools and beyond. We want to thank all of our students for making the day a success.
On April 12th, all MVHS freshmen and sophmores gave a full day of community service at 11 different sites including Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter, Liberty Library and Liberty Food Pantry, Montville Historical Society, Liberty Town Beach, Muskie Senior Community Center, Sebasticook Regional Land Trust, Waterville Area Humane Society, Mount View Elementary School, Walker Elementary School, MOFGA, and Troy Elementary School. All seniors will have their Community Service Day on April 27th, and the junior class will have theirs on May 10th. Mustangs give back! Thank you to our wonderful communities for the support of our students and our schools.
