Mission

Oak View School provides a nurturing environment where students are empowered with academic and social skills to become enthusiastic learners. This is accomplished by working in close partnership with parents and the community to provide child-centered programs that recognize and build on the unique potential of each child. The school’s primary goal is to build the foundations that will sustain and promote lifelong learning.

Academics

Oak View School provides for the teaching of literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and interpersonal development. All subjects are integrated with computer literacy, and follow the NJSLS. Teachers use the Reader's Writer's Workshop Model to facilitate language arts instruction. Math instruction is interactive and focuses on student understanding of math concepts. By studying science, social studies and health, students gain a greater respect for life and the environment.

Programs

Oak View School has before and after school programs provided by the YMCA. We also have an after school enrichment program sponsored by our Home and School Association. Classes are taught by our teachers, parents, and outside vendors. All students may sign up and attend any of the classes that interest them. Classes offered fall into the categories of fine arts, sports, and academics.

Teachers

Our Oak View teachers are always trying to find ways to improve instruction so that our students will meet success. Staff meets weekly in grade level professional learning communities to discuss teaching strategies and programs to improve the learning of their students. On the district level, teachers have the opportunity to both teach and learn within our Teacher's Academy. Our Teacher's Academy offers a variety of courses, designed for teachers to enhance their teaching abilities.

Supports

Students benefit from the services of a full-time nurse, a full-time guidance counselor and an experienced child study team. Services such as resource, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy are available for students needing these services. We have an Intervention and Referral Services committee that meets monthly to develop strategies and supports to help our students meet success in learning.

Health

Oak View School provides students with forty minutes of recess each day along with three physical education classes within a ten day period. We have a full-time nurse to take care of our students' health needs and teaches specialized health lessons at each grade level. Our HSA has a Health and Wellness committee that provides activities where students have fun learning about their health, along with teachers that administer our health curriculum.

Parents

Oak View School takes great pride in its very dedicated and hard-working Home and School Association. Parents raise funds to support the curriculum and special school programs such as educational classroom materials, field trips, assemblies and class parties. Their total efforts are endless in providing cultural and fun-filled annual events for the whole family.

School safety

The safety and overall well being of all Bloomfield students and staff is of the utmost importance. All Bloomfield Schools follow a collaboratively developed school safety and security plan based on The Holistic Approach to School Safety & Well Being and the New Jersey Administrative Code 6A:16-5.1 School Safety and Security Plans. The Bloomfield Schools Safety and Security Plan encompasses the following: The protection of the health, safety, security and welfare of the school population; the prevention of, intervention in, response to and recovery from emergency and crisis situations; the establishment and maintenance of a climate of civility; and supportive services for staff, students and their families.

Technology

All students in every school and all grades have daily access to computers to personalize instruction and learning under the guidance of their teachers. As of 2017-18, all students in grades 7-12 participate in the district 1:1 program and take home a Chromebook. Students without home Internet access are provided on the recommendation of the school principal a device for high-speed Internet. All students have access to a variety of online software and secure data sources for research and learning.
