North Valley High School is a continuation high school in the Anderson Union High School District. NVHS is a small campus (about 120 students) offering instruction to students between the ages of 16 and 18 who are deemed as at-risk of not completing their education. The goal of each student is to make up credit deficiencies and either graduate from the continuation school or be transferred back to the comprehensive high school. Some students choose continuation education because of family needs or other circumstances.
Anderson Community Day School provides appropriate education for younger students who have been unsuccessful in the comprehensive school program. Community Day students are under 16 years of age and are usually in the first or second year of high school. They are taught curriculum that is in-line with state standards, in a self-contained classroom with one teacher throughout the day. A computer applications teacher is with them each day as well. Each of these staff members is dedicated to helping the students achieve at the highest possible level. As students progress, they are returned to the comprehensive school or to a suitable alternative program.
Oakview High School (OHS) is the independent study school of the district and is fully Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accredited. The school's curriculum is in line with state standards. Recognizing that the comprehensive high school does not meet the needs of all students, OHS provides for those students who are unable to attend daily classes. Oakview provides an opportunity for students, who might otherwise be unsuccessful in a comprehensive high school environment, to complete the requirements for a high school diploma. The staff is committed to meeting the educational needs of each individual. Since teachers work one-on-one with each student, they are able to get to know their students as individuals. As a result, they are able to recognize the deficiencies and prescribe educational remedies. The teachers are caring individuals whose desire is to help each student achieve at his or her own highest possible level.
