GATE Magnet & California Distinguished School


  • The Ocean View School District is committed to a high-quality education for all students.  One way we support this commitment is the appropriate placement of students in classrooms.  Each year, principals engage with teachers to create classes for the following year.  Many things are taken into consideration, including academic strengths/needs, English fluency, boy/girl ratios, potential peer conflicts, and parent/guardian input. We welcome your input, particularly in two main areas: 1) students whom it would be best to keep separate and 2) specific characteristics of the desired classroom environment. Class Placement Consideration Forms can be found here:

    Class Placement Consideration - English

    Class Placement Consideration - Vietnamese

  • Welcome to Star View Elementary School, A California Distinguished School and a GATE Magnet School in the Ocean View School District.  I am Paul Kraft, and I’m honored to serve as the principal of Star View, where we “Shine Together with Awesome Results.”  This year we have faced many challenges together, yet we continue to provide an outstanding intructional program for all of our amazing students.  Due to the hard work our teachers and students have demonstrated, we again received the honor of being a California Distinguished School.  Our signature practice is writing- a quick visit to the classrooms provides evidence of the exceptional writing program benefiting all of our students.

    After working with the exceptional Star View staff, and getting to know each and every student and family for the past year, one can see why Star View students continue to excell.  Furthermore, I’m a firm believer that each child has many unique talents, and working together, we can help all of our students reach their potential.  This past year Star View participated in many educational events and festivals, further enriching the learning experiences of our talented students.  We will work together to continue to provide enriching events and opportunities, all while conforming to required safety mandates.  Please continue to join us at Star View as partners in our students education.
