Mountain View is a great small town in the heartland. The community keeps its small town values with a big heart. We rally around those in need for whatever reason; fire, sickness, and hardship. We enjoy supporting our local shop owners because they are our friends and neighbors. We are diverse in many opinions except one, there's no community without unity. We celebrate successes from cancer remission to the school's state championships.

I have lived in the Mountain View area all my life. I enjoyed the community and the friends I have made while living here. I am a graduate from all three schools here in this town (elementary, middle, and high school). They all have some great teachers and have provided a great education to many young people.
Mountain View is a fantastic place to visit or stay for a lifetime! The community is filled with wonderful people who sincerely care for one another and do everything possible to help in any way needed.
