Mountain Vista welcomes you!

Welcome to the Mountain Vista Elementary school website, where children learn some of todays most equitable skills possible! Brand new this year we are implimenting a couple new programs to add to our tool kit; PBIS and CKLA.


PBIS or Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is a system developed by a subsection of the U.S. Department of Education called the Office of Special Education Programs or OSEP. It's purpose is to define, develop and implement a framework for assisting evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. It is not however a replacement for any systems in place to reduce serious problem behavior but rather a tool to create the most successful culture possible through positive reinforcement of respectful, responsible, honest behavior.


CKLA or Core Knowledge Language Arts is a suite of documents, recordings, videos and most importantly a backbone structure of methods of how to provide even, sequenced education on vocabulary, and comprehension. It does not stop there however, it is also an unprecedented thorough approach to developing decoding and other critical foundational skills.


It is our objective to utilize these tools, combined with Spalding Phonics, EngageNY, GoMath and many other tools we implement on a daily basis so that our students will recieve the absolute best education they can recieve today, we are devoted to this cause.


A Message from our principal Crystle Gallegos

My name is Crystle Gallegos and I’m honored to be the new assistant principal at Mt. Vista K-8 School.  Our superintendent, Mr. Dennis Blauser and I are excited to work together as we focus on innovative curriculum, quality instruction, and the daily operations of our school.  I look forward to working primarily with our Pre-K through sixth grade while Mr. Blauser will primarily oversee seventh and eighth grades. 


I strongly believe that providing our children with a quality education is the greatest investment we can make in both our community and in our collective future.  As a school leader, it is my responsibility to ensure that all students at Mt. Vista K-8 School are safe, respected, academically challenged, and provided opportunities to discover their individual strengths and interests. 


I’m a proud graduate of the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University.  Before transitioning from the classroom to school leadership, I taught Social Studies to seventh and eighth grade students in the Flowing Wells School District.  I have served as an assistant principal for the past five years.  My experiences as an assistant principal include supporting grades K-12, the implementation of a successful PBIS program, college and career readiness initiatives, development of community partnerships, and earning the Arizona Education Foundation’s A+ School of Excellence Award.


When I first read, Small Town Roots, Global Expectations on the Oracle School District website, I immediately wanted to know more about the district and community!  Now a proud member of the Cougar family, I look forward to working with Mr. Blauser and the Mt. Vista staff support the mission of the Oracle School District and provide an innovative and boundless educational environment that develops adventurous learners and responsible citizens by supporting student achievement and growth.    


Communication with families, the community, our staff, and students is of great importance to me.  I can be reached via e-mail at and in the Mt. Vista Office at 520-896-3003. 


I look forward to meeting you soon and an exceptional school year!
