Welcome to the Northmont Family!!!

Welcome to La Mesa- Spring Valley Schools, Northmont Campus. We are looking forward to an exciting and productive year where students, staff, and our community learn and grow together. There have been many changes to our school staff so be sure to check out our directory.

We are committed to creating an inclusive, supportive, and equitable family here at Northmont. Throughout the 2019-2020 school year we will continue building community and developing respectful, empathetic, and collaborative citizens. Our character development program will center around three key character traits, Respect, Cooperation, and Empathy. When applied to our daily lives these traits support students and adults alike in becoming more compassionate, responsible, and positive members of our school family and greater community.

We strive each and every year to providing a rich and rigorous curriculum for all of our students, focusing on problem solving skills, productive struggle which helps students learn to persevere, accountable conversations, Depth of Knowledge, and using technology, as it becomes more and more accessible to us, to transform learning. Our implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will continue to be a driving force for our instruction. 

We have an amazing staff who firmly believes in supporting all students as they become the very best citizens and learners they can be. Our District motto is “Every Child Learning Everyday” and we as a school family fully embrace this. Our PTA and parent community is equally committed to these goals. We invite you to become involved and share your ideas, questions and talents.

Peace Circle

We begin each morning with our Peace Circle on the Blacktop. This is a great way for us to start the day as a school community. Our staff, students, and families have an opportunity to hear announcements, participate in our Pledge of Allegiance, and our Peace Pledge. We also praise students and adults for academic growth, peace builder behavior, excellent effort, and a variety of other positive contributions to our school community. If you haven't been out to join us at our Peace Circle please plan a visit.

Parent Volunteers Are Family

Northmont takes great pride in our fabulous parent volunteers. Research proves that children whose parents are actively involved in their child's education through volunteerism, Run for Fun, homework and PTA  have a higher success rate in student achievement. Thank you to all our parents who support our neighborhood school through their many talents like Art Docent, PTA, after school clubs, classroom & office assistance, and so much more. Many of our parents support our school behind the scenes as well. We know who you are :-) . We appreciate you! If you are interested in volunteering please notify your child's teacher and come into the front office. You will be asked to fill out a Volunteer application and show an official form of Photo I.D. (ie., Driver's License, State Issued I.D. Card, Military I.D. or Passport). You can obtain the form from the office or here on our website.
