Welcome to Mountain View and West Elementary Schools. As principal, it is my pleasure to serve your family in a partnership to provide a safe, welcoming, and positive learning environment. The Spearfish School District believes strongly in the mission of our schools ‘Empowering all students to succeed in a changing world’. That mission begins with our primary schools and is met with our approach to provide for and educate the whole child, focusing on positive behavior supports and a broad curriculum including music, technology, and physical education, art, and a strong core curriculum.
We welcome you to visit our schools and introduce yourself to our outstanding staff. On behalf of our entire staff, thank you for your partnership and support.
Mr. Nick Gottlob, Principal
Mrs. Carole Schaffan, Assistant Principal/District Curriculum Director
