Mountain View Los Altos Union High School District | Diversity Employer

www.mvla.net/

The Mountain View Los Altos High School District (MVLA) was established in 1901, and currently serves the communities of Mountain View, Los Altos, and Los Altos Hills. We are an award-winning high school district with two comprehensive high school campuses, Mountain View and Los Altos High, a continuation high school, Alta Vista, and an Adult Education Campus. In addition to our high school and adult campuses, we also have small alternative settings, including our Freestyle Academy for Arts and Technology and our Middle College program housed at the Krauss Center for Innovation (KCI).  
 
We pride ourselves on innovation, excellence, and ensuring every one of our students receives a high-quality education. We reflect the diversity, ambitions, and spirit of our innovative community within Silicon Valley.
 
The MVLA High School District is located approximately 15 miles north of San Jose and 40 miles south of San Francisco. Our communities are home to various high-tech firms, including Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, Intuit, and Synopsys, as well as NASA-Ames.
 
Outstanding universities such as Stanford and San Jose State border our district to the north and south. The vibrant economy, diverse culture of the area, and a strong heritage of educational excellence support our two comprehensive high schools, consistently ranked in the top 500 high schools nationally.

HISTORY
Mountain View High School was founded in 1902, at the corner of El Camino Real and Calderon Avenue. By the the 1920s, enrollment had grown significantly and a second high school was needed. In 1924, the school district opened a new school on Castro Street. The 1933 opening of Moffett Field prompted growth at both schools, and facilities were added on both campuses to accommodate students of local and military families.

By the 1950s, Mountain View Union High School was again unable to accommodate the increasing student body on its campus. In 1956, the school district added Los Altos High School on Almond Avenue. By 1961, the district built another school near Grant Road at the corners of Truman and Bryant: Chester F. Awalt High School, named for the first superintendent of the district.  

The Mountain View School District sold the original school buildings on Castro back to the city and relocated the school to Awalt High School. Originally, Los Altos High School adopted the Mountain View school colors and mascot. Later individual identities were selected:  Mountain View High became the Spartans (colors: black and gold) and Los Altos High became the Eagles (colors: blue and gray).

OUTSTANDING TEACHERS
MVLA recruits and retains excellent teachers, many of whom hold Masters or Doctorate degrees. We support our 400+ teachers with technology in the classroom, ongoing professional support and training, and top salaries and benefits. We foster collegiality, respect, and cooperation among all students and staff. The average student to teacher ratio is 20:1.

ACADEMICS & ACHIEVEMENT
MVLA has a long history of academic achievement and success, reflecting our high standards and proven in our high test scores. Our graduation and college acceptance rates are among the best in the state. Los Altos and Mountain View high schools are consistently ranked in the top 1% of high schools nationally. In the MVLA district, 98 percent of our graduates matriculate to college. Our schools offer more than 40 Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors classes. Student to teacher ratio is 20 to 1. All of our schools have received the maximum six-year accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
