Curriculum Overview

Mountain View Lutheran School has adopted elements of Core Knowledge, Common Core State Standards, Nevada State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards as the foundations for the written curriculum in Preschool through Grade 5.


KINDERGARTEN:
Kindergarten at Mountain View Lutheran is a reading, writing program with emphasis on phonics, reading readiness, developmental thinking, mathematical relationships, religion, and beginning science and social studies concepts.

Children also continue to develop skills in relationship-building and maintaining a positive attitude towards learning in a more structured school setting, which includes the developing of personal responsibility. This developmental process requires parent and teacher dedication and consistent communication.


Grades 1-5:
The education of the child in the elementary grades is based on the need for a firm foundation of basic knowledge to further develop the tools necessary to function successfully in the broadened scope of education. Each classroom is self-contained, with the classroom teacher responsible for instruction in all of the core subject areas. Departmentalization in the specialty areas of Band, Music, Visual Arts, Library and Technology serve to enable the children to have a well-rounded and balanced educational experience, as the classroom and specialty teachers collaborate to more fully enrich the educational experience. All curricular areas are approached from a distinctly Christian point of view and presented using means which make education creative, meaningful and personal.
