Spanish-English bilingual program
Children must pass through metal detectors
World View High School is a small safe school that has a bilingual program for new Spanish speaking immigrants, and offers opportunities for international travel to locations such as Canada, Spain or Germany.
Founded in 2013, this still-young school has established a solid foundation with consistent routines and a clear vision. It boasts a safe tone and solid leadership according to school surveys. Children 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.
The Quality Review shows that staff members work well together. While not many children are ready for college-level work by the time they graduate, most graduate on time, and the comprehensive educational plan (CEP) says teachers work with coaches to improve instruction.
Children take educational and recreational field trips. Ninth graders picnic in Van Cortlandt Park and 10th graders visit Ramapo in Rhinebeck, NY, to climb ropes and hike trails. Children help stock oysters as part of the Billion Oyster Project in New York Harbor. They travel to Washington D.C. to visit colleges and the Holocaust Museum. A travel club raises money for international trips.
All children must take four years of math and science. 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 a social worker and a college advisor.
The school shares a building with DeWitt Clinton High School and Bronx Collaborative High School. Children may participate in DeWitt's many campus sports and activities. Students in the building must pass through a metal detector.
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 at a rate that is higher than the citywide average.
ADMISSIONS: Open admissions: Priority to Bronx residents. (Lydie Raschka, DOE data, September 2018)
