About the School
Marysville Mountain View High School is one of the district’s many choices for high school. We provide a variety of alternative learning options that may include any combination of on-site, remote, on-line, project-based, and/or work-based learning that prepare motivated, self-directed learners for successful transition into college and/or career programs.
The MMVHS Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) program is based on a philosophy that focuses on a student’s acceptance of personal responsibility, establishment of positive relationships with staff and other students and relevance of study that connects directly to career/college readiness. Students who are most successful in ALE programs are active participants in their learning, attend school regularly, communicate with teachers and staff members weekly, set and monitor weekly and monthly progress goals and are motivated toward further education, career and citizenship. Students must apply and successfully complete an Orientation/intake process to be accepted into this ALE program. ALE students may also participate in district programs, such as Culinary Arts, NJROTC, Automotive Technology, Sno-Isle, and Running Start.
The Marysville Mountain View ALE program supports the district’s overall goals and objectives for student academic achievement by individualizing our student’s education in ways that may not be possible at our larger high schools. MMVHS is smaller and, in turn, has smaller class sizes. In this setting, students receive more one-on-one attention from teachers and staff. This results in increased learner engagement, better understanding of subject matter and improved grades. Instruction is student centered, student focused, and solution driven. Through remote courses, students can catch up and graduate with their class or get ahead to graduate early. An additional benefit is flexible scheduling, which can be advantageous for students who work or have children. MMVHS is a place that is student centered, safe, accepting of everyone, and a place where students feel that they belong. It is a place that provides respect, relationships, and relevance to the real world and a place where students can become re-engaged.
