Our vision is that all students at Lakeview Junior High will experience equal access to a well-balanced, challenging education designed to prepare them to think, communicate and achieve to their fullest potential academically, socially, and personally.
About The School
Lakeview Junior High was established in the year 1964 by the Orcutt Union School District due to the increased population of Orcutt Junior High. Today the school has approximately 500 students. The school's mascot is the Trojan Warrior. Our school colors are black and gold. Lakeview has been recognized as a California Distinguished School three times: 1988, 1990, and 1996, and awarded National Blue Ribbon status in 1998.
Lakeview Junior High School is a seventh grade and eighth grade junior high school with 500 students. We presently have 250 eighth grade students and 250 seventh grade students. We have twenty- two full time certificated teachers, one half time certificated teacher, and two certificated teachers working in our Special Education program. We also employ four full time aides in the Special Education program and a half time ELD teacher. We have twenty- three classrooms, a full library, a gymnasium, two changing rooms for students in Physical Education classes, and a multi-use room with a fully equipped stage for drama productions. Our students walk to school, or they are transported by the district bus service. We hold regular education classes throughout the day, and we also have a Resource program and a Learning Handicapped classroom. We schedule students into four core classes each day, one Physical Education class, and one elective class. Our elective classes are Keyboarding, Health, Art, Drama, Industrial Arts, Marine Science, Home Economics, Leadership/ASB, Gardening, Study Skills, and Yearbook. Lakeview has an active PTSA and a School Site Council. Each meets once a month throughout the school year. Lakeview has an active English Learner Advisory Committee that meets quarterly to help parents clearly understand the educational process so that they can positively interact with the school and thus become advocates for the education of their children. Lakeview Junior High School has been a proud member of the Orcutt Union School District for over fifty years.
