Our School

  • Mountain Park is an elementary school which is part of the Surry County School System nestled in the foothills of North Carolina.  Surry County Schools was ranked 13th in the State for the 2016-2017 school year for high student achievement. Mountain Park Elementary joins in our county-wide focus on academic success for all children.  Our mission is to provide an environment where students, school, home, and community can work together to develop lifelong learners who value themselves and others, and can contribute to their community and live responsibly in a changing world.

    The staff at Mountain Park works diligently in order to ensure the success of every learner that attends our school.  Our highly qualified teachers engage our students in a rigorous academic environment in order for them to become problem solvers through critical thinking.  Our goal is to personalize every child’s education by meeting individual needs while providing a positive and safe environment.  

    We also focus on the whole child by offering a variety of opportunities such as Student Council, Running Club, Art Club, Chess Club, Robotics and Elementary Battle of the Books. Because of our school’s size, approximately 200 students in grades Pre-Kindgarten - 5th, the atmosphere is family oriented, friendly, and child-centered.
