Mountain View School is one of five schools that form KCUSD Educational Options. The other schools are Reedley Middle College High School, Dunlap Leadership Academy, Kings Canyon High School and Kings Canyon Adult School. Mountain View offers an independent study educational plan for K-12 students. Reasons for placement on independent study vary, as do lengths of time in the program. The majority of students are classified as high school 9-12, but MVS also serves elementary and middle school students.
As part of the independent study program, each student is assigned a teacher to guide their studies. Students are to be supervised and in their homes during school hours when not attending school. Teachers meet with students on a weekly basis in two hour blocks. Except for medical issues, students are seen at the Mountain View School Student Center in Reedley, the MVS classroom on the Sheridan Elementary site in Orange Cove, or the MVS classroom on the Dunlap Leadership Academy school site in Dunlap. KCUSD outlines the number of hours teachers must meet with each student, which varies by grade level.
Mountain View will provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to become capable, productive citizen who exceed all expectations held for him or her by others. The educational goal is for all students to either earn a high school diploma or return to their home school site.
