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 Nehrmeyer

Hello! My name is Crystle Nehrmeyer and I’m honored to be your child’s assistant principal at Mountain Vista Pre-K-8 School.  This is my second year at Mountain Vista and it is my belief 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 we look forward to the new school year, I want to highlight some of the outstanding accomplishments made by our students and staff last school year.  Students in Grades K-8 participated in our innovative Tech Academy and Maker’s Space equipped with 3D printers, robotics, programmable drones, raspberry-pi customizable mini computers and an exciting array of game designing software that allowed our students to build their own gaming systems and test them out in our virtual reality station.  This year we will expand our Tech Academy and provide even more programmable devices to better serve our younger students.  We had an outstanding showing at the Southern Arizona Regional Science Fair (SARSF) including six first place winners and one overall third place ribbon at the Arizona State Science Fair.  Our students read more than three thousand books at their independent reading levels, including one second grade student who read over 50 books throughout the course of the school year.  We implemented our third year of Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) and the results from our annual school climate surveys signify a happier, more productive school atmosphere than ever. 


These highlights are a testament to our great teachers and caring staff members that serve as proof that small schools like Mountain Vista can and do make a tremendous impact in the lives of students and in the community.   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 Mountain Vista Office at 520-896-3003.
