Mountain School is a public charter school in Flagstaff, Arizona which covers grades pre-kindergarten through six. It is a school founded by parents, reflecting parents' concerns. When we began in 1980,our aim was to provide our own children with an alternative to the rigidity and to the crowding of public schools. Through the years we have evolved into a school committed to having children gain academicbreadth while maintaining their inherent love of learning, a school where learning works in concert with children's senses of integrity and self-esteem. We have a school where children feel good about themselves- and about learning. Flagstaff
