Mariano Castro Elementary Schoolhttp://castro.mvwsd.org/
Our school is named after Mariano Castro, who was born in San Francisco in the early 1800s. Castro received title to mission land that included both Mountain View and Sunnyvale. He quickly took up residence and established himself as both a cattle rancher and a local activist. He called his land Rancho Pastoria de las Borregas, this land grant would become the setting for a new town, and the Castro family would play an important role in its development.
