Our School

mheFrom the moment you walk in the door at Mammoth Heights, you feel welcomed, cared for and cherished for the unique individual that you are. Our students have the opportunity to think together, take risks, and make different choices for learning.

Technology, innovation and creativity are embedded in our planning and instruction for students. Our school currently utilizes iPads, Chromebooks, and MacBooks to enhance our students’ 21st century learning environment. Technology integration to support daily instruction and communication amongst students and teachers is visible each day.

Mammoth Heights has many choices to meet the needs of our student population. We currently offer a full day kindergarten program that helps prepare our students for first grade. Furthermore, we offer a 6th grade middle school model that includes departmentalization and individualized scheduling to better prepare our students for middle school.

All of our K-6 classrooms take a balanced literacy approach to instruction focused on World Class Outcomes, alignment to state standards, and differentiation based on students’ unique learning needs. All grade levels also use Math in Focus to support academic achievement in numeracy with a focus on problem solving and conceptual application. Our students experience additional programming such as music, art, physical education, science, and technology.

The culture and climate at Mammoth Heights sets our school apart from others. Students, parents, and staff are happy, grateful and anxious for their education and to be in such a strong and positive learning space. Mammoth Heights will always encourage everyone to Dream, Strive and Become the best that they can be.
