Mountain High Library
The Mountain High Library is a safe and stimulating place that supports the learning and literacy needs of a diverse community. We provide access to information, engage in collaborative instruction, and promote a love of reading that encourages lifelong learning.

Advisory Reading is a program available to Mountain High students where they are able to earn an additional 1/8 elective credit outside of school hours. To earn this credit students first read a book from the list of advisory books. These books are chosen for this list because they show examples of people, real or fictional, who have faced challenges, overcome hardship or demonstrated characteristics of resilience, courage or personal strength. After reading the book, students write a 1-2 page essay based on the writing prompt. This essay is submitted to Cheryl in the library to be reviewed.
Library Advisory Committee
The Mountain High Advisory Committee is a group composed of a diverse students, school faculty and parents who serve as both the Advisory and Collection Evaluation Committee for the school. These are committees that are in place in every school library to address issues of challenged library materials, should that arise, and to recommend titles to add to the library collection.
We meet in the fall as a group and then on an as needed or as desired basis. Each student member of the committee reads and recommends a minimum of one book during their term on the committee.
The Library Media DESK focuses and prioritizes the reading and information literacy skills that students need to know and be able to use to help them read and research effectively in all subjects and with a variety of technologies.
The library is still in the process of being remodeled, but we are open for business in the midst of it all! Come in and find a book - it's a bit of a treasure hunt!
We are told that the black board will be making a return appearance so stay tuned...
