Student success is Ms. LaFourcade and Ms. Savona's highest priority and the experiences our students have at Mesa View with their friends, teachers, administrators and parents will influence the level of success they achieve.  Mesa View's counselors are available to help students work with these people who are also pivotal to their success.

College & Career Readiness
At Mesa View, one of our jobs is to get students to start thinking of their future beyond middle school and high school. One tool we provide to help with that mission is an online resource called CaliforniaColleges.edu, at www.californiacolleges.edu. The site helps students and families examine college and career options. All eighth graders will use the site this fall where they will create their own account and complete a career interest survey. The default login is: office365 email address, for example "lindam123@ycjusd.us". The default password is the student's 10 digit student ID number.

Seventh graders will take part in a career exploration activity through California Career Zone, at www.cacareerzone.org, where they will use the "Make Money Choices" tool.

Sixth graders will participate in an introduction to career exploration through "The Career Game Explorer" book.

All of these activities increase student awareness and understanding of what happens after high school. To some, it might seem a bit early to start thinking about this, but it's really not too early. Knowing what classes you want to take in high school, and what college and career options these choices might lead to, are critical decisions.
Supporting School Success
The following information is provided by parentfurther.com
Every child’s needs are different, but it takes more than just being smart to do well in school. Support academic success at home, and help your child succeed in school with these simple tips.
  • Instill good study habits,
  • Instill a love for reading,
  • Instill a commitment to learning.

Everyday Tips

  • Start at Home: School success starts at home. Create a homework center, a specific area in the house (such as an office desk or the kitchen table) where your child can do homework each evening. Make sure that it’s stocked with enough supplies, such as pencils, erasers, paper, a folder or two, and a calculator.
  • Do: Sit with your kids when they’re doing homework. If you have work you need to do for your job, bills to pay, or some other project, do it while your child is doing her homework, and let her know that even adults have homework. Model what it takes for school success by staying focused and not leaving until you’ve accomplished what you set out to do.
  • Encourage Critical Thinking: Help your child with his homework, but make sure that you’re not doing it for him. Your role is to help him succeed in school by asking questions, giving examples, and assisting him in learning concepts, not giving him the answers. Critical thinking skills are crucial for doing well in school at every age.
  • Stay Involved: Work with high school counselors, teachers that know your child well, and your teenager to create an academic schedule from ninth to twelfth grade that challenges her and deepens her school success skills. Do: Keep your teenager growing (without boring or placing too much pressure on her) so that she gradually masters skills that will be useful for doing well in school and beyond. After each semester, talk with your teen and make necessary adjustments to the schedule to make sure that it is still appropriate.
  • Interests are Important: Encourage your kids to find books that excite them. Don’t overlook graphic novels, comic books, magazines, or other types of reading that may not interest you, but interests them. The point is to keep them reading, which promotes school success. Talk to them about what they’re reading on their own and in class, and ask which books they like and what they’re learning.
