Institutional Profile

Mountain View School Division is a geographically large rural school division located in the heart of the Manitoba prairies. Here one can find pristine lakes; cool, refreshing streams; rolling grasslands; and sprawling forests. The division is nestled between two prairie mountain ranges – the Riding Mountains to the south and the Duck Mountains to the north.
Mountain View School Division has a dynamic public education system with an annual enrolment of approximately 3,250 students.  The division provides Kindergarten to Grade 12 educational programming in sixteen schools located in seven separate communities: Dauphin, Roblin, Winnipegosis, Grandview, Gilbert Plains, Ethelbert, and Ochre River.  Due to the large geographical nature of the division, approximately 50% of our students are transported on division buses to their local community school.

Mountain View schools have extensive extra-curricular programs where students can participate in a variety of activities, and divisional tournaments are held throughout the year to highlight the sports program. To complement the athletics program, fine arts and music programs are offered throughout the division.

Mountain View School Division will foster an inspired, respectful and safe learning environment.  Every student is valued and nurtured, enabling each one to realize his/her full potential.

Program Details

We take great pride in offering high quality educational programming within a safe, caring environment at each of our sixteen schools. International students have a variety of options to choose from: to study and receive credit for courses taken; to graduate with a Grade 12 Diploma; or to participate in a short-term cultural and language development program. To ensure international students integrate successfully into regular classes, the Division offers various supports such as English as an additional Language, access to school counsellors, and program staff who remain closely connected with students, schools and homestay families. Students may complement their academic studies with a variety of school- and community-based activities. To fully experience family life in Canada and become immersed in the English language, many students choose to live with one of our carefully selected homestay families.
