Hi there! My name is Jon Nettleton and I teach in the Business Department. This is my 24th year of teaching and the last 15 have been at Mt. View High School. I teach Computer Applications I/II/III, Web Design I & Exploratory Computer Science. I went to college in Wisconsin where I grew up and lived for 30 years. I have lived in Idaho the past 17 years. I have been married for 22 years to my awesome wife and have a son who is entering 6th grade this year.
I am also the Boys Varsity Basketball coach here at Mt. View. I have been coaching for 25 years and the head coach here at Mt. View the past 15 years.
My classroom is Room 211 so if you want to stop by and ask about a class I teach or talk hoops my door is always open.

This year every student will receive FAST FORWARD money to pay for Concurrent Credit classes. The total is now $4100 per student--during high school. This is a great opportunity as a student could earn up to 63 credits while in high school. I also offer the MOS Exam for all my students. This Exam is recognized world wide by the business industry as a way to measure computer skills. Microsoft has created this exam to cover MS Word, Excel, Acces & PPT and a certificate is earned after passing the exam. All exams are free but if you were to take on your own outside of my class it would cost around $100. Most of my students take at least 3 exams per semester.
Webdesign 1 - Introductory webdesign class that teaches HTML and CSS. You will learn the basics of creating webpages and websites.
Intro to Computer Science - This class is designed to introduce students to the scope of the field of computer science through an exploration of engaging and accessible topics. Rather than focusing the entire course on learning particular software tools or programming languages, the course is designed to focus on the conceptual ideas of computing and help students understand why certain tools or languages might be utilized to solve particular problems. The goal of Exploring Computer Science is to develop in students the computational practices of algorithm development, problem solving and programming within the context of problems that are relevant to the lives of today’s students. Students will also be introduced to topics such as interface design, limits of computers, and societal and ethical issues.
