Governor Steve Sisolak mandated school closure for all public, charter and private schools K-12. MVM will follow this mandate and include closure of our Toddler and Children’s House programs at a minimum through Spring break. We understand the difficulty this poses for families in need of child care, and we will work diligently to support in whatever way we can.

All of us at MVM appreciate your continued support through these uncharted waters and challenging circumstances for all.

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.
