My son thought he was not athletic or musically talented. He is quirky and interested in current events. This school has a competitive debate program and the staff sponsors clubs such as California Junior Scholarship program, Builder's Club, and Guitar club among others. There is Cross country, which my son participated in, volleyball, soccer, basketball, and football. The teachers are caring and they get to know the students' strengths and weaknesses. With parent and community support, the staff at Northview is making things happen in this community!
My son's debate class competed against private schools and brought home trophies! the band program at Northview has grown to include various instruments and has created a tremendous bridge to high school band. there are so many opportunities for every kind of kid. I'm pleased with everything that goes on inside and outside of he classrooms at Northview Intermediate School.
The teachers only see our kids for an hour a day each. They are doing everything they are supposed to for them, We parents need to focus on what is good for our kids and be aware of their needs and be willing to support the learning goals for our students to succeed.
