Mountain View High School is a public high school outside of Lawrenceville, Georgia, United States. It is a part of Gwinnett County Public Schools. It opened for classes on Monday, August 10, 2009.

Mountain View was originally created with students from Mill Creek High School, Collins Hill High School, and Dacula High School. It currently serves students from the Mountain View geographic cluster of feeder schools.

The Mountain View school district is made up of J. G. Dyer Elementary, Freeman's Mill Elementary, Woodward Mill Elementary, Patrick Elementary, Twin Rivers Middle School and Mountain View High School.

Rivals[edit]

Mountain Views rivals are the Tigers of Archer High School and the Hawks of Mill Creek. The Archer rivalry was due to the two schools opening in the same year. However, they did not play in the same region, so they were a non-region fixture for all sports except football, as Archer moved on to the Corky Kell Classic in 2014. The Mill Creek rivalry comes from the 2011 season when the three-year-old Mountain View program upset Mill Creek in a 9-7 football game.

Wrestling[edit]

The wrestling program at Mountain View has been the centerpiece of athletics, picking up many trophies since its start.
