There are a variety of great reasons families seek out a new home in Mountain House, but our schools are almost always at the top of the list. Why, you ask? Located in the acclaimed Lammersville Unified School District (LUSD) and ranked in the 2018 Best School Districts in California by Niche.com, our stellar elementary schools are complemented by the state-of-theart Mountain House High School and nearby San Joaquin Delta College. In Mountain House, you don’t need to travel far to receive the education you’re looking for.
A+ schools truly have a home here and they are constantly improving, just like we are! In August 2018, Mountain House welcomed Hansen Elementary, a brand-new K-8 school located in Hansen Village to its lineup of celebrated LUSD campuses. The upcoming Cordes Elementary is following close behind with a planned opening in 2020. Plus, families and students can embrace a tight-knit community complemented by supportive learning environments, and plenty of opportunities to explore career paths for the future.
Do lengthy pick-up and drop-off lines create chaos in your daily routine? Wish you could keep a watchful eye on your children as you enjoy the walk to school together? In Mountain House, our community has been thoughtfully designed with your family and convenience in mind. Each of our six villages contains a nearby Lammersville Unified School District elementary school, making it easy for those attending to walk or bike to campus.
Mountain House students are also more than just classmates. They are neighbors, teammates, club members, and friends. The amiable aspect of our community helps students feel supported by not only their teachers and family members, but also by one another. These friendships are fostered through the years in Mountain House beginning as early as kindergarten and following all the way up through high school and community college.
As a parent, you want to ensure your student is getting the education and attention he or she needs to succeed. For schools in Mountain House, this comes standard. The average classroom size for a LUSD school is 25 students or less, ensuring that teachers not only know the names of their students, but more importantly, they understand the strengths and weaknesses of each child. The classroom becomes a more personalized and supportive environment that allows students to feel comfortable speaking up to ask a question or participate in a lesson.
Resources are also available for those struggling with learning disabilities. Mountain House High School students that have difficulties in the areas of Math, English, or Science can participate in learning labs for extra support and instruction. These three programs allow students to learn at their own pace in a safe and nurturing environment.
As technology changes, so do we! With our 1:1 Chromebook Initiative, we equip our Mountain House High School students with a Chromebook laptop that can be used both inside the classroom and at home. This, partnered with our Blended Learning program, allows our students to take control of the time, place, and pace of their lessons with online lectures complemented by projects, and engaging activities inside the classroom with an instructor. Our students are encouraged to seek out the information and resources they need to further their education on their own, which in turn conditions them to adapt to our ever-changing environment.
For most high school students, graduating and deciding on a career path isn’t easy. So to help streamline the process, Mountain House High School partnered with nearby San Joaquin Delta College to create the California School Board Association (CSBA) Golden Bell Award winning Early College Pathway Program. The program allows high school students to take classes that
will apply towards their Associate’s Degree. The best part? Students can explore potential areas of interest in the fields of biomedical science, engineering, computer science, arts, media & entertainment, culinary arts, international studies, and world languages before heading to college to pursue a major.
