Here at Mountain View Middle school we offer various Academic Support systems. Below are the current Academic Support systems we have in place along with information about each.
We offer every student the opportunity to get help with their school work during the school day schedule.
This club is offered Tuesday’s and Thursday’s after school from 3:50-4:50 in the Library.
The club is tutored by our certified staff for math and/or Humanities. The intent is to give students a quiet place to complete homework and ask any questions of the staff on site. Students are not required to go both days or for the entire year. The intent is to help kids get caught up and return for support as needed.
Parent must give permission and bussing is available to students who normally take bus home. Form to sign up for Homework Club will be available in main office.
Moving to a new country can be difficult for anyone, but for students who have just arrived in this country as refugees, or from traumatic situations in their home country, transitioning to school can be exceptionally hard.
Mountain View Middle School is the site for Beaverton School District's middle level Newcomer Center. Here we help the most vulnerable students new to the country adjust to school in the United States, and to support them academically, mentally and emotionally.
Our Newcomer Center is a school within the school that provides acculturation supports to students who have entered the country within the last year, have had an interruption in education, have suffered some type of trauma or suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Mountain View's Newcomer Program is staffed with one teacher and two instructional assistants, and a part-time social worker. At this site, we can support up to 15 students at a time. The majority of the program is self-contained, students engage in instructional activities that work to enhance and accelerate the acquisition of the English language so they are able to navigate the classrooms and communities of which they are a part. At the middle school level, students also participate in electives classes and are provided additional support in the core content classes.
The staff in the Newcomer Center is provided training in trauma-informed teaching to reduce the initial distress of the students and to help them eventually return to their home school.
The Newcomer Center is only a temporary placement, and students are transitioned back to their home school within about a year. Additionally, students and their families are given support for basic needs. Every student who comes to the Newcomer Center is provided with home visits from our social worker to connect the family with resources in the community.
