Hey, how come you didn't tilt-shift this photo before posting it? (Just kidding)

Got it ...Very good explanation..thanks..so saying Mount Fujisan would be like saying the Rio Grande River...which lots of people say, of course..

'Yama' and '-san' both basically mean 'mountain'. While 'yama' stands alone if you don't name the specific hill, '-san' is used as a suffix that's added to the name to identify it as the name of a mountain. Adding another 'Mount' to the name is redundant, if you have the '-san' ending anyway. In English the correct form ist either just 'Fuji', 'Mount Fuji' or 'Fujisan'.

In school I was taught that it is called either Mt. Fujiyama, or Mt. Fuji.

It's 'Fujisan', 'yama' is not used as sufix for names. ; )

If that's japan, then the mountain isn't kilimanjaro, it's Fujiyama.
