Mountain View High School is a secondary school in Loveland, Colorado, United States. Mountain View opened in 2000 and is the fourth public high school in the city, and the fifth high school in the Thompson R2-J School District. The principal of Mountain View is Vance Zchselle as of the 2016-2017 school year.

Mountain View was chosen in 2007 as the district's Music and Arts magnet high school, which is called LISA (Loveland Integrated School of the Arts). This is the only high school in Loveland that holds this program. The school also houses the national pre-engineering program, called Project Lead the Way.

The school features 13 Advanced Placement courses, and is certified as a "high" achieving high school by the Colorado Department of Education.[2]

Students at Mountain View are permitted to rent iPads from the school due to a technology grant awarded by the Thompson School District.[3]
