Dr. Gerald B. Probe Elementary School is the only school located within the Mountain Heights subdivision, but students can be bused to G.S. Lakie Middle School, Chinook High School and Catholic Central West Campus. St. Patrick Fine Arts Elementary School and the University of Lethbridge are also nearby.
The location of Mountain Heights provides easy access to everyday amenities with Safeway, Save-on-Foods, Shoppers Drug Mart and Home Hardware all just a short drive away. The Macleod Crossing Mall is also right next door and hosts an insurance agency, daycare and the Holthe Tilman immigration law office. New amenities such as Tim Horton’s and Subway are popping up quickly in Westgate Center in the neighbouring SunRidge subdivision
