Campus Canyon K-8

Campus Canyon K-8

Reasons to choose Campus Canyon’s K-8 setting for the ‘middle school’ years.

 

We believe that the building blocks of life-long learning are established in the elementary and middle school years. Our middle school program reflects this belief with a strong academic program as well as wonderful opportunities for students to participate in our two magnet school themes:  school-wide enrichment and college connections.

 

  • The K-8 environment allows students to engage in age-appropriate activities and events, without being exposed to the peer pressures of the ‘tween years’. Our children are free to stay “younger” a bit longer.
  • With our magnet school theme of college connection and our proximity to Moorpark College, students have the opportunity to experience first hand through ‘walking field’ trips learning & enrichment opportunities on a college campus.  Also, our 8th grade promotion ceremony is held on the Moorpark College campus.
  • At Campus Canyon, all students are known by name and are a big part of our small, supportive, learning community.  In this nurturing K-8 setting, each child is recognized as an individual with unique gifts and talents, which are encouraged and supported through our school-wide enrichment theme and Friday E3 options.
  • In our school, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders are not “caught in the middle.” They are the role models for the entire student body. The result is greater confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of belonging.
  • Campus Canyon middle students assume early leadership responsibilities.  Students can serve as a classroom ambassador, choose to participate in Builder’s Club (a service organization sponsored by Kiwanis), volunteer as a peer tutor to a Kindergarten or 1st grade student, or be part of the middle school leadership class, which organizes school events and is responsible for the daily school-wide pledge of allegiance.
  • After-school enrichment programs in the arts – string orchestra & band – provide additional opportunities for individual student interests. 
  • We prepare our students for new academic and social challenges. After being in the same school for nine years, eighth graders are ready for change. With a strong foundation of learning and friendship, high school becomes a new and exciting chapter.
