Welcome

Glenview Elementary is a public K-5 school enrolling 400+ students in Oakland, California within the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD).

At Glenview, we pride ourselves on several key areas which make our school special: our diverse student population, high level of parent involvement, strong administrative leadership, and outstanding teachers and support staff. An education at Glenview includes commitment to science, arts, reading, math and technology for a well-rounded educational experience.

In addition to the whole-learning focus at Glenview, we have a robust event calendar filled with community building opportunities for the whole family. With so much to be proud of, there is good reason that Glenview Griffins "just can't hide that Glenview pride!"

Mission

At Glenview Elementary we aim to provide children with educational opportunities that meet them at their point of need, enable them to make academic gains at or above their grade level, and to develop into healthy adolescents. Students will become creative, critical thinkers who are caring participants in their local community and compassionate global citizens.

We continuously strive to meet our mission by:

  • Offering equitable access to educational programs that foster academic achievement, a lifelong love for learning, and a passion for cross-curricular artistic expression through music, art, technology, and PE.
  • Promoting cross-cultural understanding, interaction, and appreciation by building empathy for all and learning about the current and historical experiences of others.
  • Offering our staff professional development and planning opportunities that improve the school climate, support research-based and data-driven instructional practices, and promote the growth of our instructional and support staff
  • Working in concert with parents, guardians, caregivers, and the community to meet individual and collective needs
  • Developing community partnerships for the benefit of our students, parents, and staff
  • Explicitly teaching and supporting children in developing social emotional skills through the use of Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS) and The Toolbox Project

Morning Chant

I believe I can learn.
I must learn.
My mind is a pearl.
I can do anything.

I’m in this world because
I am somebody.
I will always be somebody.
I will succeed.

Because I - Am - Somebody!
