Mount View Daily Affirmation
As a member of our school,
I pledge to respect myself and others,
To make good choices,
And to give my best effort in all I do!
Welcome to Mount View Elementary!
Mount View Elementary is located at 5322 North 52nd Street, and became part of the Omaha Public Schools in July, 1960. For the 2007-2008 school year, we opened and completed our first year in our beautiful new building.
Currently, Mount View Elementary hosts approximately 400 students in grades pre-kindergarten through sixth, and Head Start. Attached to our building is a Boys and Girls Club that many of our students choose to attend after school and during the summer.
Mount View Elementary offers many programs and features that help our students grow, learn, and succeed. Some of those programs and features include caring and professional teachers and paraprofessionals, after school tutoring, state-of-the-art classrooms, and many more.
We hope you enjoy our website. Here you will find links for both parents and students, a photo tour of our building and facilities, information about our wonderful teachers and their classrooms, and other general information.

Monroe Middle, Morton Magnet Middle, McMillan Magnet Middle
and Hale Magnet Middle Schools will be adding 6th grade students into their
buildings for the 2016-2017 school
There are many benefits for our students who are in a 6th
– 8th grade middle school:
Students have increased student achievement in
core academic subjects that include: math, reading/language arts, science, and
Teachers are departmentalized, which allows them
to specialize in deep understanding of one content area. As a result, many middle
school teachers earn master’s degrees in the subjects they teach.
Students are on a team of approximately 120-140
students at the same grade level with the same 5 to 6 core team teachers.
Teaming at middle school allows teachers to have
daily team meetings and common plan time that provides teachers time for
developing individualized instructional strategies to support students, to
balance homework assignments and to provide curricular enhancements.
Students and families are provided continuity
during these middle school years, which increases engagement in the school and
Teachers lead advisory programs that are
designed to create a structure to help students get to know one another, meet
their needs, work effectively and build positive relationships with peers and
adults that extend into classes and become schoolwide.
Middle school staff members are provided
professional development that increases their understanding of the
developmental needs of this age group (10-14 year olds). With this understanding, the teachers
recognize the importance of applying effective strategies to engage students in
their classrooms as well as various clubs and activities after school.
