South Mountain is a Kids at Hope school which means we are committed to the belief that all youth are capable of success, NO EXCEPTIONS! In order to make that vision a reality, we aspire to ensure that all adults are treasure hunters and every youth is a time traveler. Treasure hunters search for the skills, talents and intelligences in all children/youth. Time travel is the ability to envision one’s future in home & family, education & career, community & service, and hobbies & recreation and create a plan for developing the skills needed to experience success in life’s destination points.
