Education for the World Ahead

In the Mountain View Whisman School District, we prepare all children for the world ahead by providing the challenge, inspiration and support our children need to reach their highest potential and thrive in a world of constant change. Our priorities are academic excellence, strong community involvement, and manifesting a culture of respect and diversity. We invite you to join us in our creative and ambitious desire to provide every child with an education for the world ahead.

Academic Excellence

It is a top priority throughout our district to support and inspire children to reach their highest academic potential. We hold high expectations of our students, teachers and staff. Guided by effective assessment, we engage students in rigorous and results-driven instruction. Our teachers and staff are highly qualified, possess a “can-do” attitude, and are committed to the continuous improvement of our schools and programs.

Strong Community

We place a premium on building positive and lasting relationships throughout our community. Within a strong culture of collaboration, we provide opportunities for every child to experience a variety of citywide enrichment opportunities. We have meaningful interdependent relationships with several area corporations and universities. Each school has strong parent involvement, with the majority of parents contributing their time, talent and resources either directly in classrooms or through their support of the PTA and the Mountain View Educational Foundation.

Broad Worldview

In the heart of Silicon Valley, we teach and support our students to thrive in a global environment.  We promote a culture of respect.  Within a wonderfully diverse community, children in our district have access to rich, multicultural perspectives and activities.

No education for the world ahead is complete without the use of advanced technology. To fuel our students’ curiosity and access to the world, we leverage technology in our schools and programs.
