Although the school is chartered through the Hillsboro School District and is a part of the public school system, we are not a district school. Our school governance board is responsible for aligning the school visionary goals with functionality and accountability. The school administrators are responsible for all of the school operations and are charged with maintaining overall accountability to all of the stakeholders of the charter school.
Parents play a significant role in the school. Families are encouraged to commit to developing a strong school culture of support and involvement. We endeavor to create a parent network that is empowered to take active roles in parent -led committees, auxiliary and enrichment programs, classroom and teacher specific needs, and school-wide development. Parents and other community members are recruited to serve as guest experts, attend exhibitions of student work, and serve on portfolio panels.
As a public charter school, we will enroll students on a basis of available openings in each grade without preference of race, gender, socio-economic standing, or student ability. City View provides a “whole learning environment” that addresses the needs of average students, high-end learners, low-achieving students, English language learners and students with special education needs. The combination of a reasonable student/teacher ratio, cooperative learning groups, diversity of experience and expertise within the teaching staff, and the use of expeditions as the focus of teaching and learning will enable the school to address the needs of each student within an integrated classroom.
The City of Hillsboro is a diverse and developing community that attracts a wide variety of people. The city has an established concentration of high tech businesses, expanding state of the art medical facilities, and agricultural industry. These industries together with a strong cadre of local businesses create a spectrum of cultural and economic diversity within our community. The Hillsboro School District is the 4th largest district in the state, encompassing areas in West Portland, North Plains, Cornelius, Aloha and Sherwood. City View Charter School provides a “public school of choice” for families that are seeking an alternative option for their children’s education.
