Our School

Welcome to McDowell Mountain! We are a public school in the small and supportive community of Fountain Hills where we proudly educate students from preschool to third grade. With this focus, we are able to center on the developmental and academic needs of very young children, providing the foundation that is essential for student success in the upper elementary level and beyond.

All McDowell Mountain teachers are fully certified and highly qualified with an average of 19 years of experience in education and 10 years in the district. We strive to provide the best education available for your child. If you would like more information about our letter grade and state test scores, we encourage you to take a look at our School Report Card.

Our Mission Statement

The McDowell Mountain students, staff, parents, and community will cooperatively provide a safe, child-centered environment that builds self esteem, self-discipline, and the essential skills for life-long learning. While adapting to the differences of others and by using responsible decision making, students will exhibit citizenship with the motivation to invent, dream, explore, and communicate in our changing world. At McDowell Mountain School everyone is a learner and will encourage and help others to be successful learners.
