Beyond the walls of education A tuition-free, public Junior High charter school

gearing up


We are excited to announce that Utah Mountain School, a tuition-free, public Jr High, will be located at 3885 Hwy 89, in Pleasant View, opening August 2021.  The location has been approved, and we have been working with a great group of contributors to bring Utah Mountain School to life beyond the pages of the charter that was written.  Now, architects are working on sketches of what the building and outdoor learning spaces will look like at our site.   

If you haven't already, please complete this form so we can add your information to our contact list.  More information will be shared as it becomes available. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email Sheri Hardy, our Director, or call 385-205-9118.

Thank you for your continued interest in Utah Mountain School.  We hope to see you soon!

guiding through


Administrators, faculty, and staff all play very important roles in students' lives. At UMS, we see ourselves as role models who bring out the best in students and encourage them to strive for greatness. We share our knowledge and help them to become better people.

As important as it is, just being where students are is not enough.  Instead, we create expectations that we will have a place in each student's life (and those of their families) as they transition from class to class, grade to grade, and on to high school. 

It truly takes a village to educate students.  Teachers to administrators.  Board members to staff.  There will be a lot of adults committed to making each student's experience at Utah Mountain School productive and safe--as unique as each student who walks through the doors of UMS.
