Welcome to Mountain Trail

Welcome to the beginning of the 2023-24 school year!  There’s something special unfolding at Mountain Trail right now. Our veteran and new staff members share a common passion for making a difference in the lives of middle-level learners. An infectious culture of positivity, collaboration, and teamwork has resulted in a commitment to a common purpose that will allow creativity, engagement, and fun to flourish through rigorous learning opportunities. I’m so proud of our talented teachers and support staff and so excited that you have chosen to join our Mountain Trail school community.

Your child’s middle school experience will be defined by change. During the middle school years, your children will change more socially, intellectually, emotionally, and physically than at nearly any other time in their lives. Working with students through these changes is exceptionally enjoyable and rewarding. Though all our incoming students will be changing together, they will also be changing differently. There is no such thing as a “typical” middle school student. Some students will arrive at MTMS organized, prepared, and independently successful. Others will seem aloof, unorganized, and need more teacher and parent support to be successful. The one constant is that all middle-schoolers need to be appreciated, nurtured, and accepted. Your child will not get lost at MTMS.  We will work hard to learn their strengths and unique characteristics. Similar to you, we want our students to be happy and successful. To pull it off, we need your help and input. Please don’t hesitate to contact us whenever you have important information to share.

Everything we do at MTMS is strategic and intentional. Please take a moment to read our vision, mission, and belief statements, which accurately reflect our approach to nurturing and supporting students at Mountain Trail.

Vision:  Students are known, valued, and prepared for a lifetime of success.

Mission:  We engage, inspire, and nurture students through high-quality instruction, authentic connections, and dynamic learning experiences. 

Beliefs:  We display our vision and mission by operating under these important beliefs:

  • We welcome students without judgment and move forward together regardless of starting points or circumstances.

  • We nurture, accept, and support all students in our diverse population as they grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

  • We engage the whole student in learning - head, heart, and hands.

  • We honor our talented, hard-working, and inspiring teachers and staff because they have a passion for middle school students and drive the success of our school.

  • We partner with families to maximize student success and fulfillment.

  • We embrace change and acknowledge when we are wrong.
