The primary mission of Ranch View school is to create and maintain a safe learning environment where all students are challenged, nurtured, and motivated to learn and grow. The priorities include not only academic skills; but also social, interpersonal, communicative, and decision making skills to become informed citizens in our democratic society.
Ranch View is a place where children feel safe. It is a place where all children can learn to the best of each individuals ability. It is a place where being a good citizen is expected and those who live up to the challenge are rewarded. It is a place where all adults: certificated staff, classified staff, and parents, work together for the good of the students. A dedicated and caring staff provides engaging opportunities for learning and sets high goals for achievement. Students are encouraged to begin at their levels and strive to meet and then go beyond the grade level standards set by the State. Parents are very important partners in the education of their children.
Ranch View School has various programs to meet the needs of the students including: EL, Intervention, Homework Club and Special Education. Positive behavior is encouraged and rewarded through the use of Wrangler Awards, Attendance Awards, Trimester Award Assemblies, Pizza with the Principal, Wrangler Awards, Most Improved Awards and Honor Roll Awards.
In order to ensure a safe school environment, disaster preparedness plans are in place that includes monthly practice drills. The school facility also hosts a library media technician and two library paraeducators. Technology is a priority at Ranch View School. All classrooms are connected to the Internet and approximately 400 computers are available for student use. Students have access to a variety of software including Accelerated Reader and Math, English in a Flash, Early Literacy, Renaissance, and Reading Eggs. Software is used in all classrooms for EL students to provide vocabulary practice and content skills.
Ranch View is staffed with a Principal, Resource Teacher, 2 Special Day Class Teachers, Speech and Hearing Specialist, and 31 teachers. The district also employs School Psychologists, Technology Specialists, an ELD/Curriculum Director, and a District Nurse, which we share with three other schools. Teachers continue to grow professionally through staff development, and conferences, with all achieving Highly Qualified status.
