Spring View Middle School is a diverse middle school serving students in grades 6 - 8. Of our approximately 800 students, 40% receive free/reduced lunch, 14% are English Learners, and 17% are identified as special education students.
Our teaming model at the sixth grade level assists with students’ transition to middle school. Students have one teacher for English/Language Arts and Social Science and one for Math and Science. Students have the opportunity to experience a trimester exploratory wheel, a beginning band class or chorus.
Spring View is proud to offer our Sparty F.E.S.T to our incoming 6th graders. Sparty F.E.S.T is a school orientation program that welcomes 6th graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout the transition to middle school. Specifically named for Friends Experiencing Spring Together, our 7th and 8th grade Leadership students work with our 6th grade students and guide our new students as they discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to middle school and help facilitate 6th grade success.
Spring View Middle School follows a traditional schedule. Daily classes are English/Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Science, Physical Education, and Elective. Classes meet for 53 minutes and students see the same teachers every day.
Spring View is proud of its students’ achievements. We believe much of the credit for this gain lies in our focus on standards-based curriculum and instructional strategies as well as the strong parent and school relationship that is developed and fostered in every classroom. Elective classes include exploratory wheels (art, computers, woodshop), instrumental music, yearbook, Leadership, Bridges, and 8th grade Spanish. These classes support and develop a variety of skills in our students.
Listed below is a sampling of the wide variety of instructional programs offered:
Students who exhibit a high level of achievement in Language Arts may participate in the Honors Language Arts and Social Science classes. The teachers enrich the grade level standards to challenge their students. Students are identified for this class based on Smarter Balanced English Language Arts Assessment scores, fluency levels, comprehension scores, District Benchmark scores, grades and teacher recommendations. Students must maintain at least a B grade in each class each trimester, have outstanding citizenship and work habits each trimester, as well as continue to score in an Advanced or high Proficient manner in all District and State assessments to continue in the program the following year.
Spring View offers an advanced math program for students who are advanced in mathematics. These classes move at a faster pace and emphasize application of mathematical concepts. Placement is based on placement tests, SBA scores, teacher recommendation, grades and overall student achievement.
Special Education Services
Spring View hosts a wide variety of special education services including Resource Specialists, a Speech Therapist, and Special Day Classes. Our staff looks to integrate services and classes as much as possible to offer students a least restrictive environment which maximizes our students' experiences and our staffs' expertise.
With the assistance of our PTSO, Spring View has been able to provide students with access to technology. All classrooms are equipped with a SMART board and projector, as well as a document camera. All of our 6th, 7th and 8th grade teams have ChromeBook carts with ChromeBooks provided by both our district and our PTSO, ChromeBook carts with 36 ChromeBooks that the entire school can utilize. The staff attends on-going trainings to maximize the use of these exceptional instructional tools. In addition to the ChromeBook carts we have one computer labs teachers and students may utilize. Our computer labs host Exploratory Wheels at all grade levels as well as provides a place for students to complete assignments during recess when needed.
