Board of Trustees


Mountain View Montessori is guided by a Board of Trustees who, together with the MVM administration, oversees and protects the financial position of the school, ensures adherence to AMI accreditation and standards of educational excellence and develops long term planning to protect the school’s sustainable longevity.

Each year we are fortunate to have dedicated individuals from our parent community, faculty and the greater Reno-Sparks community who serve on our Board of Trustees.
