Star View is a dynamic and unique school among the eleven elementary schools in the Ocean View School District. The District encompasses an area of 15 square miles in west Orange County, California. Although much of the district is in Huntington Beach, Star View's location allows us to serve students from Westminster, Midway City, and Fountain Valley. To the north of Star View lies Little Saigon, California's largest concentation of Vietnamese families and businesses.
The exemplary reputation of Star View shines in our community. The epitome of a model elementary school, our warm and caring atmosphere is balanced with the highest level of professionalism and commitment to student success. Star View's dedicated and knowledgeable teaching staff is among our most valuable resources. Star View teachers pride themselves in maintaining a high level of expertise based on current practices, often sharing their knowledge throughout the school and the District. Star View teachers believe their role extends beyond the walls of the classroom and have a longstanding relationship with our community. The children of former Star View students currently attend Star View and, in many cases, have the same teachers as their parents. Star View teachers, impressed with the school's educational excellence, traditionally enroll their own children at Star View.
Our commitment of children and their education is renowned in our community. A variety of instructional strategies are implemented to meet diverse student needs, promote student achievement, foster independence, build character, and encourage life-long learning. Our standards-based curriculum is constantly evaluated and revised through an extensive assessment process. New programs are added each year to promote literacy and provide equal opportunities to all members of our diverse student population. Our academic success is evidenced by our API of 886 in 2011.
On any given day, a visitor to Star View will observe teachers, students, and community volunteers collaborating to ensure the smooth operation of our site. Star View community members are valued partners and contribute greatly to the success of our students. Volunteers donated over 20,000 hours of their time last year helping in classrooms, organizing school events, supporting office staff, working in the library and preparing instructional materials for teachers. Star View's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), School Site Council (SSC), and English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) boast a high level of member participation with regular meeting attendance and a perspective that enhances school-wide, decision-making and improvement.
Star View's commitment to the success of all students results from an open partnership among parents, students, community, and our professional staff. Together we work to meet the needs of each individual in an atmosphere of respect while celebrating our diversity. Our reputation is one of academic excellence; child-centered, standards-based curriculum emphasizing thinking and meaning; site-based teamwork and decision making; and instructional practices and promote stellar academic achievement and life-long learning.
