Welcome from the Principal

  • Pride Students,
    Welcome to Mountain Pointe High School, the Home of the Pride, and to the 2016-2017 school year. 
    This is an exciting time to be a member of the Pride.  This past year saw many great accomplishments. We had eight students graduate in 2016 that also earned their Associate of Arts degrees from Rio Salado Community College by taking advantage of the Dual Enrollment Program. The class of 2016 saw nearly $10 million of scholarship offers and over 90% of the graduating class is moving on to post-secondary education. In addition we had 33 seniors that fulfilled all of the requirements and graduated from one of Mountain Pointe’s academies. Our students have continued to raise the bar each year for academic and extra-curricular/athletic excellence. This legacy of excellence now falls to the students currently attending as we look towards the future.


    This year we move forward and continue with our focus on our vision for all:


    Establishing Purpose, Instilling Pride, Empowering Performance

        – One Person at a Time


    At Mountain Pointe these words serve as the foundation for all that is done at school and it is important to keep these words in mind as you go through your high school experience.  In addition, we will continue to provide every student with a Rigorous curriculum that is Relevant to today’s world while continuing to build positive Relationships with our students, parents, and community members.


    My challenge to each student as you begin this new school year is to get involved.  Be a positive force at Mountain Pointe High School and continue the excellent tradition of raising the bar for those that follow you.  Challenge your intellect; take an AP or honors class that you might not normally consider or look to earn as many college credits through Rio Salado Dual Enrollment as you can.  Try out for an athletic team or join a club that interests you, run for a class office or join student council as a VIP member, in other words look for opportunities that are going to expand your mind or body.


    My promise to you is this; myself and the staff will continue to dedicate all our efforts to making sure each student has access to a world-class educational experience.  No stone will go unturned in providing every opportunity to be successful.  


    In closing, as you walk through the halls of Mountain Pointe remember one thing; the graduates before you have set the standard for excellence.  It is your responsibility to not just maintain that tradition but to surpass it.  Determine your PURPOSE, take PRIDE in who you are and what you do, and expect a high level of PERFORMANCE.  My door is always open, this is your school.  I invite you to communicate your ideas so that Mountain Pointe High School continues to set the bar for excellence in the state of Arizona.


    Make 2016-2017 the best school year ever.
