College View has a long history as an award-winning, high achieving Title 1 school, and in 2015-2016 we were recognized as an Honor Roll Star School for demonstrating consistent high levels of student academic achievement and reducing the achievement gap. We maintain a consistent focus on improving student achievement through our strong Professional Learning Communities and our commitment to on-going Professional Development. Our highly qualified staff, which includes three Ocean View School District Elementary Teachers of the Year, provide effective standards-based instruction and a positive learning environment for all students. We are very proud that College View houses the district DHH (Deaf and Hard of Hearing) Program, and we can offer students, at all grade levels, bi-weekly classes in American Sign Language.
Our commitment to utilize current researched-based programs and teaching strategies allows our staff to provide state of the art instruction and project- based learning opportunities. Our leveled and differentiated English Language Arts instruction is enhanced by our Read 180 program and our school-wide reading program, Accelerated Reader. We are also able to provide an after-school tutoring program which focuses on reading comprehension and includes a musical theater experience. Our Mathematics instruction is augmented by our ST Math Program, and students visit one of our two computer labs at least three times per week for 45 minute sessions. All classrooms have computers and access to chrome books. As a legacy school, we have partnered with the Los Alamitos Army Base to annually provide our 5th grade students with a one week, free, STEM. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) experience.
Our Positive Behavior, Intervention, and Support Program (P.B.I.S.) is practiced school-wide and encourages our students to make positive choices and meaningful contributions while providing a framework for a structured progressive discipline program. Our staff believes in “Catching Students Being Good," so we have developed programs to celebrate this. Children can earn “Super You’s” and these tickets can be redeemed at the student store which is run by our 4th and 5th Grade Kid Council, or they may earn a Proud Board Ticket for lunch with the principal. Students focus on monthly character traits which promote; honesty, self-discipline, compassion, cooperation, respect, generosity, friendship, acceptance and perseverance. Our diverse population of 440 Kindergarten through fifth grade students are embraced by our staff, and cultural differences are acknowledged and celebrated. Our community partnerships with the Huntington Beach Kiwanis Club and the Huntington Beach Optimist Clubs bring enrichment opportunities to our students. Children are also encouraged to participate in community outreach programs such as Bunny’s Kids to help families in need.
The visual and performing arts are very important to our school and community. Together with our PTA and local businesses we are able to provide vocal music instruction to our primary and upper grade students. Our after-school, free, Tap and Hip Hop dance classes are a big “hit” and are well attended and enjoyed. Our Art Master’s program exposes children to the visual arts and art appreciation. Our partnership with the Huntington Beach Art Center allows us to participate in an annual gala where College View students are able to display their beautiful works of art. All grade levels perform plays in the Spring and many students perform at our annual talent show.
Parent involvement is encouraged and College View offers many opportunities for families to get involved. We have an active, results-orientated and supportive PTA along with a School Site/ English Language Advisory Council that allows all community members to offer input and monitor the school goals and expenditures to achieve our growth targets. Clear and precise stakeholder communication and participation is achieved through a myriad of avenues; district, school and teacher websites, a Weekly Community Bulletin, our Blackboard Connect automated message system, Take Home Tuesday Folders, and email blasts.
School spirit abounds at College View, and we embrace the importance of providing enrichment and after- school programs. Students participate in monthly themed spirit days, Walk Through the Revolution, Walk Through California, the Imagination Machine, Author’s Day, Reading in the Park, standards-based field trips, book fairs, STEAM Nights, Jog-A-thon, Trunk or Treat, Skate Nights, MAD Science Robotics, and numerous restaurant nights, just to name a few.
Our entire staff takes great pride in our school. Our commitment to excellence is prevalent in every aspect of our day, and our community members echo this sentiment. Our school facility is well maintained, clean, and safe. As a matter of fact, our Head Custodian was recently named the 2016 Custodian of the Year for the State of California. We have Wildcat “Pride” and it shows! College View is described by many as having a welcoming family atmosphere. All of our children receive an exemplary education while feeling supported socially and emotionally by our compassionate and caring staff.
