Mountain View Elementary School is without a doubt the best school in the Rockbridge-BV-Lexington area. My two daughters attended MVES for their entire elementary years. One went on to be valedictorian at Rockbridge County High School, the other was salutatorian. The great thing about MVES though is that they don't just focus on the high achievers. All of the teachers know all of the students, and those students who need extra help to succeed get it. MVES's Destination Imagination team is consistently competitive with schools public and private across the state, having advanced to the Global Finals four time. The teaching staff is caring and experienced. The vast majority of the teachers there are the same as when my girls attended, giving a continuity of quality not found at many schools. Recently one of the teachers was named a Virginia Super Teacher by the VA Dept. of Education. If you're looking for a small community elementary school where your child will succeed, you'll do no better than MVES.

Mountain View is a wonderful small school. What a beautiful building!! It has to be the cleanest building anywhere. The teachers and staff are the best we've ever experienced as a family. The new principal is great!

My son went to this school for pre-school and kindergarten, and I was very pleased with the former principal Donna Duncan, and very much pleased with Mrs. Groah! Mrs. Groah is a wonderful teacher and person. If she could follow my son all through his school days I would be tickled! She is a very understanding teacher and has the patience of Job. My son loved her and misses her even now almost 2 years later.
