    To Our Mountain View School Community and Visiting Guests,

    Welcome to the Mountain View School District located in beautiful Kingsley, Pennsylvania.  My name is Michael S. Elia and I am the proud Superintendent of our school district.  With over 23 successful years working in the Pennsylvania public school system, my diverse work experiences have allowed me to take the best of what I know and of what I have seen and bring it to the students and community of Mountain View.  Additionally, as Superintendent in collaboration with our Board of Education ensures that our district will continue to hire the best qualified and motivated administrators, teachers, and support staff.  Our administrators, teachers, and support staff must have a strong work ethic, clearly understand the vision and goals of the district, and work collaboratively to do what is best for our students.

    Through a recent Mountain View community survey (2022), overall our parents and students report feeling safe, very happy, and excited about the future of our district.  We are very encouraged about these results, but we will not rest or become complacent on our current successes.  We are laser focused, as a district, to always have a progressive growth mindset where we are willing to adjust, change, listen and actively respond to the needs of our parents, students, and community.  Our Mountain View community always has a voice!

    Over the next three years as a district (2023-2026), our district goals will include: improving and refining our positive school climate at both schools, using current educational data to identify educational gaps so instruction can be more targeted, updating our K-12 curriculum scope and sequence, and empower all parents/guardians, teachers and students to learn and confidently navigate our new Naviance career program.

    We are very excited and looking forward to working with you and your children over the next three years.  Please feel free to reach out by email or phone anytime with any thoughts, suggestions and/or questions in the Superintendent's office at or at 570-434-2180.  Happy New Year!
