Mountain View School Division is located in the heart of the Manitoba prairies. Here one can find pristine lakes, 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 is home to sixteen schools located in seven separate communities: Dauphin, Roblin, Winnipegosis, Grandview, Gilbert Plains, Ethelbert, and Ochre River.
The Mountain View School Division office is located in Dauphin, Manitoba; 320 km northwest of the province’s capital city, Winnipeg. Mountain View School Division staff will meet students at the Winnipeg International Airport and transport them to their new community and homestay family. Our students are always so delighted they travelled the extra distance to come to Mountain View School Division.
Mountain View School Division has a homestay program. Students are placed in safe, friendly, positive home environments and treated like a member of the family. They also receive the benefits of interacting in English, receiving support from their homestay family and taking part in family outings. Of course, students have their own bedroom, internet access and receive 3 meals a day.
Mountain View School Division has two homestay managers that carefully select trusted and respected families from our communities. The homestay managers work hard to make sure that student enjoys their stay in their chosen home, through regular communication with the students and their homestay families.
We believe that a student’s experience in Canada is very important. Our international student program provides international students a very special activity once a month. This activity is included in the tuition fee so students do not have to pay for these memorable activities. Activities in the past have included such things as horseback riding, skiing, ice fishing, canoeing, etc. In addition, students participate in many outings and activities with their homestay families. They will have so many unforgettable experiences while at Mountain View School Division.
Students are encouraged and supported to get involved with school athletics, clubs and student groups. Additionaly, the program helps students get involved in volunteer programs within their communities.
