We are located approximately 15 miles from the town of Hilo and 15 miles from the Volcanoes National Park.  The Mountain View area is known for high rainfall and cooler temperatures.  Our school is part of Hawai'i Department of Education Kea'au/Ka'u/Pahoa complex.  Students in our school district come from the Volcano area down to Kurtistown and beyond.

We have approximately 500 students on average and have around 45 teachers and 60 other staff members to support students.  We serve students from Pre-School age through the Fifth Grade after which they transition to Kea’au Middle School in Kea’au.

We are a community of innovative lifelong learners striving toward excellence. Our Mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which we build a productive and successful community of learners with:
  • Respect (Ho'ihi) - We treat others the way we want to be treated.
  • Responsibility (Kuleana) - We take care of ourselves, others and the environment.
  • Cooperation (Laulima) -  We work well with others.
  • Pride (Ha'aheo) - We feel good about the choices we make and the accomplishments we have achieved.
