Announcements & Communications

  • Welcome Back - Expectations Letter - August 30, 2021

    Dear Returning Families and Students,

    We are excited to welcome our students back to the school building! We hope you all have had a wonderful relaxing and rejuvenating summer! As we look forward to a new and successful school year, I kindly ask that you please read and then review the relevant information with your child to ensure everyone has a clear understanding of some of the school’s expectations and the support that will be offered. As always, your support is essential in assuring your child meets their full academic potential.

    Families - it’s a team effort - we need your support!

    At WVHS, we know the success of your child is a team effort. We ask for three things from families to ensure each child is able to be successful this year:

    1. We need parents/guardians to check their child’s PupilPath account at least once a week as this will be our primary channel of communication regarding attendance, academic performance and school events. We ask that you inform us of any concern related to your child, so that we can best support him/her. 
    2. We need parents/guardians to ensure their child completes their homework every night. There will be work assigned each night.
    3. We need parents/guardians to support their child in arriving at school early and/or on time every day as attendance in the school building ensures we are able to provide them with the instruction and support they need.

    Academic Expectations

    World View High School is a rigorous college preparatory school. All students are expected to maintain an average of 80 or above in order to meet WVHS Standards. We also foster a culture of collaboration and support where students are encouraged to seek assistance from their counselor and/or teachers if they encounter any academic difficulties. Each counselor will work to meet the social, emotional and academic needs of each individual child. Additionally, we offer tutoring opportunities in the morning, during lunch, and after school. 

    Attendance Expectations

    Attendance is the most important indicator for academic success. All WVHS students are expected to maintain a 95% attendance or higher. Whenever a child is absent, parents/guardians must provide medical documentation or an acceptable form of documentation to excuse their child’s absence. If you know that your child will be absent, we ask that you notify the main office in advance; the message will be relayed to both teachers and counselors. The school will contact the parent/guardian of students who have an unexcused absence or lateness to inquire about the reason(s) as to why your child is missing instructional time. Parents will be asked to come in for a conference when attendance is becoming a concern and/or impacting the child’s academic performance. In addition, a formal attendance letter will be sent home, via mail, notifying and reminding that an acceptable form of documentation is to be provided. A copy of all letters will be placed into the child’s permanent record. 

    Safety

    Our student’s safety and security is of the utmost importance to the school community. We are committed to providing a safe, positive learning environment for all of our students as we know that this is crucial to their development, academic success and mental health. Our school has a zero tolerance policy for any violence (physical or verbal), bullying or any other behavior that could impede upon the well-being of any student or member of the school community.

    Social Emotional Support

    We, at World View High School, care about the social-emotional wellbeing of our students and families. We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic, and the resulting period of remote/blended learning, has had a significant impact on everyone. We will continue to make the social-emotional learning of our students a priority this school year to ensure we support our students in transitioning back to in-person learning. As in prior years, all students will have an advisory once a week for students to have a platform to discuss their opinions and emotions. In addition, the guidance counselors are available every day to address and support any needs or concerns that your child may have.

    College & Career Preparation

    As a college preparatory school, students are expected to maintain a high academic average in order to meet different college admissions criteria. Starting in the 9th grade, students learn about College/University and admission requirements so that they can strive to go to the college of their dreams. Every year students are enrolled in an Opportunity Network class to prepare them with the skills and knowledge they need for the college application process. All students have the chance to take multiple Advanced Placement courses during their time at World View. Additionally, starting in the 10th grade, students who qualify can enroll in College Now courses at Lehman College.

    Student Activities

    We hope to have all of our usual student activities during the 2021-2022 school year. We plan to continue to offer tutoring, clubs, leadership opportunities, sports, and trips preferably in person, but remotely if necessary.

    • Clubs- We encourage students to create clubs based on their interests. Some of the popular clubs are: debate club, gaming club, improv club, video game club, Literary Arts Magazine, Green Team and student government. If there is a club you would like to organize for next year, please email Ms. Cramer at ccramer@wordlviewhs.org
    • Leadership Opportunities- PALS Program, Student Aide Program, Strand Representatives & Student Government.
    • Sports- WVHS, in collaboration with the Educational Campus, offers over 25 PSAL sports.
    • Trips- *Note: Trips will be dependent on NYC DOE rules and guidelines this year.
    • Academic Trips- Trips have included: college overnight trips, international trips, Japanese Society, Medieval Times, Museum of Jewish Heritage, Washington DC and more!! We also offer cultural trips abroad where students have the opportunity to travel outside of the country (past trips included: Spain, Canada and Germany).
    • Merit Trips- Students who demonstrate consistent exemplary citizenship will be invited to attend monthly merit trips. Students can demonstrate exemplary citizenship by wearing the proper uniform daily, attending school and class on time and demonstrating leadership skills. Trips may include ice skating, pumpkin picking, apple picking, Yankee games and much more. 

    Uniform

    All students are expected to wear uniforms daily. Any student found to be without proper uniform, the parent will be informed of the students’ violation of the dress code. Each teacher will award students additional credits for being prepared for class, which includes dressing in uniform.

    Family Engagement

    WVHS will continue to host monthly Family Nights, in which Parent Association meetings are held, during which we celebrate student accomplishments and provide support workshops to families (for example: college information, technology workshops, information about benefit assistance, etc.). During certain family nights you will have the opportunity to meet with teachers to review your child’s overall performance to ensure your child is meeting and exceeding the school’s expectations. We encourage parents to schedule a meeting with their child’s teacher(s) and/or counselor to address any concerns they may have.

    We hope that the information provided was a helpful reminder of the school’s expectations. If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to call Ms. Castro at 718-601-0391.

    Kind Regards,

    Martin Hernandez
