Castle View High School

Add to Favorites

Castle View stands out because of the passion the staff exerts in order to transform public education. In fact, our mission statement says, "we will transform public education using Rigor, Relevance and Relationships to prepare students for the 21st century." CVHS has several foundational elements, which create the best possible learning environment for all students. Professional Learning Communities have been organized for the staff. In these PLCs, educators collaborate to enrich the learning experience for students and ensure a rigorous education. The five academies organized to meet the needs and interests of each learner. Our goal is to increase relevance for students, helping them make connections between what they learn and the real world. Students select an academy to be with like-minded peers as they pursue learning at deeper and more meaningful levels. Teachers become a guide in helping students interact with important learning standards, while at the same time pursuing their passions. At Castle View, we believe it is critical for every student to develop a strong relationship with an adult in our building. Advisement is the structure developed to facilitate this process. Every day, all students have an opportunity to meet with their Advisement teacher. In this setting, educators nurture students in a variety of areas including social, academic, and community events. CVHS is an extraordinary school which prepares all students to be contributing members of our society.

Sources of Strength
This year 35 students and 4 sponsors were trained for the implementation of a Sources of Strength chapter at CVHS. Our objective was to prepare a group of students, supported by staff to be peer leaders for suicide awareness and prevention efforts within our school and community. The training prepares the students to recognize students who may be struggling and alert trusted adults in the building of their concern. Fourteen members of Sources of Strength were selected to attend the Continental League Safe Choices Conference, sponsored by CVHS. At the conference they learned more about suicide awareness and prevention, visited with representatives of community resources who support students and families in crisis, and developed materials to take back to CVHS and support the efforts of Sources of Strength. The group had a display at the the annual 8th Grade Family Night and handed out post cards designed at the conference with contact information for those needing support.
Relational Safety

Be the Change is a seminar built for freshmen at every high school. Over 90 minutes, the seminar guides students through conversations in which they define bullying and discuss ways in which they have seen bullying happen as bystanders.

Parent Involvement

School Accountability Committee
In Colorado, it is a statutory requirement for every school to have a School Accountability Committee (SAC). The purpose of the SAC is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes. The SAC makes recommendations concerning the school’s Performance, Improvement, Priority Improvement, or Turnaround plan, and meets to discuss implementation of the school’s plan and other progress pertinent to CV’s accreditation contract with the Board of Education. The SAC makes recommendations to the principal for prioritizing spending of school moneys. Educating our children is a partnership between families and educators; the CV SAC is a great forum for parents to be involved in their children’s’ school. The SAC welcomes all parents and community members to attend their meetings to learn more about the “business” of educating our students.
