• Statement of Philosophy

    Mountain House’s philosophy is based on the idea that the purpose of education is to provide a continuation of essential learning. It is our ultimate goal to supply each student with basic facts and experiences. These will aid our youth in becoming self-sufficient individuals mentally, physically, socially, and morally so that they can meet the demands of a rapidly changing society. It is essential to instill in each student the importance of individual worth and to create a positive self-image through the personal development of initiative, resourcefulness, and responsibility.

    It is the intent of the faculty to lead students toward being disciplined, productive, informed, and fulfilled individuals. To achieve the ideals, mutual respect and understanding must be present in the learning process on the part of all participants--the faculty, students, and community.
