Welcome to Mountain View High Academics

Mountain View High School offers a wide variety of course and programs to meet the needs of all students.



Early College-Dual Credit Courses

Mountain View High School offers an Early College Dual Credit Program for all students.

Early College/CTE courses are selected career technical courses that move students along a Career Pathway, in a Program of Study, leading to a certificate or Associate of Applied Science degree. Options include courses in health occupations, automotive, science, business, criminal justice, visual arts, culinary, manufacturing and nursing.

Early College/Transfer courses can be used to meet community college certificate or degree requirements or transferred to many other community colleges and universities across the U.S. Mountain View is currently articulating courses in math, science, literature and writing.

Additionally, Mountain View High School and Central Oregon Community College are working on a partnership that would allow our high school students to earn their two-year COCC Associate of Arts degree while enrolled at Mountain View.


Advanced Placement Program

The AP program at Mountain View helps prepare students to perform competitively at the college level and provides them the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school. Mountain View's AP program is available to students in grades 9-12 and offers the classes necessary for a student to earn the AP International Diploma.

Whether students choose to take AP classes beginning their freshmen year or wait until their junior or senior year, they will receive rigorous instruction in every class. Mountain View is committed to strengthening its AP program and preparing students for success in AP classes and beyond.

AP courses are designed to be college-level courses. Students should be aware that they will be expected to work at a college freshman level. Colleges and universities tend to favor student applications reflecting challenging courses.
