Mountain View High School is a high school in Mesa, Arizona. It was established in 1976, the third public high school in Mesa. It is known for its numerous athletic and academic accomplishments. The school's mascot is a Toro. Known as the Campus of Champions.[citation needed] Ex: Toro Spiritline has won many state and national titles. In the 1984-85 school year, it was honored as a Blue Ribbon school.[2]

Mountain View was named a silver medal school by U.S. News & World Report.[3]

Athletics[edit]

Mountain View was included on Sports Illustrateds 2005 list of Top 25 High School Athletic Programs in the Nation:

Though the school hasn't been around for long, Mountain View has quickly established itself as king of the hill in Arizona. In the last decade the Toros have produced scores of top athletes, including Todd Heap and John Beck (Washington Redskins), Shea Hillenbrand (Toronto Blue Jays) and Max Hall (Arizona Cardinals). More stars are on the horizon: Mountain View has had 15 scholarship athletes in each of the last two years. And over the last 10 years, the Toros have won 21 state championships in 10 sports, including football (four), boys' track (four), boys' basketball (three), girls' track (three), spiritline (6+), and boys' and girls' cross-country, girls' swimming, girls' volleyball, girls' basketball, wrestling and baseball (one each).[4]

Sports Illustrated would later list Mountain View as the best high school in Arizona in terms of athletics.[5]

In the 1997-98 school year, Mountain View won titles in boys' and girls' basketball, football and baseball. It was the first Arizona school to do so.
