About Us

Welcome to the home of the Mountain View Lions 

We are Mountain View Elementary, one of five schools in the Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District No. 35,  and are located in Rio Rico, Arizona.  We are proud of our highly qualified staff, our supportive and involved volunteers, and the students who make it all worthwhile.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website to get to know our school better.  Whether you'd like to contact a teacher, find information about the dress code, or learn more about how to become involved, you'll find that and much more on this site.
