Clearview Elementary School was designed by William T. Hooper and was first opened in September of 1955. We are currently the largest elementary school serving pupils in grades kindergarten through fifth in Waukegan.
At Clearview, the children are offered an academically challenging and an ethnically diverse learning environment where instruction is individualized to meet the unique needs of all of our children. Reading and math are heavily stressed as we strive to prepare students to succeed in our global society.
A variety of programs is offered at Clearview. Language instruction is available according to individual student needs and proficiency levels. At present, we have monolingual and bilingual programming for our children. Once students demonstrate instructional mastery in their native language, they then transition from a bilingual classroom to a monolingual classroom.
Special Education programming is also available at Clearview. We have some students who receive resource support as outlined in their Individual Education Plans. Additionally, we also offer self-contained classrooms that provide programming for physically fragile and cognitively delayed students.
Clearview offers educational programming that supports student learning. Eligible students receive tutorial support from individual classroom teachers, state identified organizations, and the STARS program. As our children participate in these enrichment programs, they receive assistance in completing homework, and learn other new skills.
The qualified staff at Clearview recognizes that parents are an important component in the educational process. For this reason, our parents are encouraged to volunteer at the school and are invited to participate in all academic decision-making and planning for their individual children. Furthermore, parents have expressed interest in various types of training.
As a means of accommodating the needs of our community, we have planned/hosted computer and English classes for our parents. In working together, we encourage life-long learning and success for all members of the community.
