Ocean View is excited to announce that essential school supplies will be provided to all students by the school site beginning this fall!
In OVSD, achievement and relationships matter. To provide equitable access to educational opportunities, students will not be required to bring supplies with them from home, nor will families be responsible for donating classroom supplies.
While students are welcome to bring their own supplies, please know that essential instructional supplies are available to all students in the classroom. These items will be provided throughout the school year to ensure that the needs of all students are met.
To view a list of essential supplies provided by the site, visit bit.ly/OVSDessentials. Please note that there may be additional grade-level/subject items provided that are not listed. If there are questions, please reach out to Ms. Haag.
This is a reminder that OVSD will be implementing new school start times at all schools for the 2022-23 school year. In an effort to support child health, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 328 into law in 2019. Under this new law, California’s middle schools can start required classes no earlier than 8:00 a.m. and high schools no earlier than 8:30 a.m. Elementary schools have no restrictions. The law was designed to improve attendance, reduce tardiness, increase opportunities for students to get more sleep, positively impact the ability to learn, and lower the rate of depression and drop out rates. The law was passed in 2019, and full implementation of the law by all school districts is required by July 1, 2022. Therefore, OVSD will implement new school start times at all schools for the 2022-23 school year. We adjusted our elementary start times, in addition to middle school start times, so that parents that have children in elementary and middle school have time for both drop-offs.
Circle View's start time for the 2022-2023 school year is now 8:15am. Click here to see Circle View's bell schedules

Circle View Elementary, home of the Eagles in beautiful Huntington Beach, California, prides itself in providing students with an environment where all are encouraged to aim for excellence; academically, socially, and emotionally, in a safe and supportive atmosphere. Circle View currently has approximately 600 students enrolled in grades K-5 which includes six 3rd-5th grade GATE magnet classes and two special day classrooms.
Circle View opened in 1963 and is fast approaching its 60th anniversary. Circle View is a warm and inviting elementary school located in a sprawling, diverse, suburban community. We have 24 credentialed classroom teachers and numerous support staff. Many teachers have been here for over 20 years, carrying on traditions and a positive school culture on which the school was founded. Our school facility is unique; buildings are circular and classrooms are clustered around common center rooms. The proximity of our classrooms facilitates ongoing collaboration and teaming among teaching staff and a sense of community for our students and parents.
Our school’s mission is realized as students enter each morning, ready to embark on exciting learning experiences in stimulating environments that dedicated, professional staff have prepared for them. Entering the classrooms, you will be struck by the involved “buzz” of busy students and teachers engaged in the day’s learning activities. You will notice that each classroom is warm and encouraging with a clear student-centered focus. Student work is showcased on bulletin boards and there are many social and emotional practices in place.
The school staff prides itself on communication and collaboration and is greatly supported by an active and strong parent community. In addition to providing a rigorous assessment-driven, standards-based curriculum in all subject areas, Circle View teaches ethical standards centered on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) systems and character traits that become pervasive through all grade levels during the school year. Because of this commitment and dedication, the quality of instruction is outstanding. The vision of a 21st Century learning model - given commitment, resources, support and high standards - is what Circle View is all about: a collaborative group of educators with a common goal of providing college and career readiness, life-long skills, and success for every child.
At Circle View, we maintain a consistent focus on improving student achievement through our strong Professional Learning Communities, our commitment to on-going Professional Development, and authentic literacy. We are very proud that Circle View is one of the district's GATE Magnet schools. Since the mid-1960's, Ocean View School District has offered a program for identified gifted and talented students where they are homogeneously grouped together for all of their academic instruction. This research-based magnet setting provides a curriculum continuum in which learning experiences: are enriched and accelerated, promote the development of higher level and divergent thinking skills, encourage creative expression, develop leadership skills, foster healthy self-esteem, and initiate career exploration.
The GATE Magnet Program provides an all-day setting, which offers flexibility in scheduling and a wide range of educational opportunities. It provides students with a longer period of time for enriched and accelerated learning experiences that stress the use of higher level thinking skills, divergent thinking, and the students' preferred style of learning. Students receive instruction based on their academic strengths.
In 1989, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2018, and 2020 Circle View was named a California Distinguished School and Circle View became a National Blue Ribbon School in 2003 and 2019. Our school-wide commitment to student achievement is at the heart of Circle View’s success. The recognition has validated the outstanding programs and practices in place at our school. It has enhanced our staff’s eagerness to innovate and problem solve with the goal of creating the best school experience possible for our students.
