Mount View High School began in 1985 as a fully demountable school and entered permanent buildings in 1991. It serves the Cessnock community living to the west of Vincent Street and the villages to the north and west of Cessnock. Modern buildings and a tree-studded, hillside site make for a very pleasant physical environment for students and staff. A central role of the school is to help the students through the period of change which engulfs the community as it undergoes transition from a mining community to one dependent on the wine industry and associated tourist developments. Courses in hospitality, tourism and viticulture are offered to students as the beginning points in possible future careers in these industries. Links with local industry and training institutions are also being developed to create opportunities in these areas. A key goal for the school is to lift motivation and student aspirations to improve academic achievement and readiness for work in our students. Investigation and research is currently being undertaken with Cessnock and Kurri Kurri High Schools to explore whether a restructuring of secondary education within the Cessnock-Kurri areas offers better opportunities and outcomes for the students of the district.
