The Academy at Forest View

The Academy at Forest View supports instruction towards high school graduation credits for students needing a smaller setting with supports for social-emotional learning.  As students progress academically and demonstrate growth towards managing their needs, teams plan for classes and extracurricular opportunities within our District 214 comprehensive high schools.  Through career exploration activities, students are encouraged to identify their post-school interests and engage in experiential learning with our community partners.   Our talented team is excited to partner with our district community to provide a highly structured and nurturing learning environment in which students actively grow towards their aspirations.

Newcomer Center

 

High School District 214 was awarded a Bilingual Education Grant from the U.S. Department of Education on January 28, 2002. As a result, District 214 opened the doors to a new program, the Language Immersion Newcomer Center (Newcomer Center). Immigrant students with limited English language skills enroll in the Newcomer Center for two years. The Newcomer Center is designed to meet the learning needs of high school aged second language learners who recently arrived in the United States and have minimal years of schooling. After completing the program, students are transitioned to their home high school.
