Our Insights

What’s Special

Lots of student support, field trips and international travel

The Downside

Students must pass through metal detectors

World View High School is a small safe school that has a bilingual program for new Spanish speaking immigrants. Students enjoy interesting field trips and the opportunity for travel  to locations such as Greece and Italy. 

Founded in 2013, the school has established a solid foundation with consistent routines and a clear vision. It boasts a safe tone and solid leadership according to the NYC School Survey. Students wear uniforms and receive points for following rules and respecting staff. They cash in points for special activities like apple picking, ice skating and eating lunch with the principal.

Most students graduate within four years, and the majority are considered prepared for college-level work. While they are focused on traditional metrics such as SAT scores and advanced coursework, the school’s mission is to prepare students to be world citizens, and to help “students develop well-informed and independent global perspectives." Students in all grades take a weekly college and career preparatory class where they practice mock interviews and learn how to network. 

Students regularly take educational and recreational field trips. Ninth-graders picnic in Van Cortlandt Park and 10th-graders visit Ramapo in Rhinebeck, New York, to climb ropes and hike trails. They help stock oysters as part of the Billion Oyster Project in New York Harbor and travel to Washington D.C. to visit colleges and the Holocaust Museum. A travel club raises money for international trips.

All teens must take at least one Advanced Placement (AP) class and four years of math and science. Tenth-graders take journalism and leadership courses for one semester each. High-achievers may take free college classes. Most graduates go on to two- and four-year colleges in the City University of New York system, but they visit private colleges in and out of state. The school has several guidance counselors, a social worker, and a college advisor.

The school shares a building with DeWitt Clinton High School and Bronx Collaborative High School. Students may participate in DeWitt's many campus sports and activities. 

In recent years World View has focused on increasing students’ voices within the school. Administration office doors are open to children, and each class has a student government representative. 

The school serves many English-language learners, including the students in the bilingual Spanish program. Almost all English language learners graduate on time, and at a rate that far exceeds the citywide average.

World View is part of the New Visions for Public Schools network, a nonprofit that helps design, create and support schools for children in underserved neighborhoods in New York City.

SPECIAL EDUCATION: Children with disabilities are usually placed in classes with their general education peers and two teachers, called "integrated co-teaching” or ICT classes. World View is a model for team-teaching classes, and teachers from other schools come to perfect their techniques. Most children with disabilities graduate on time, and at a rate that is much higher than the citywide average (Dashiell Allen, web reports and phone interview, May 2024)
