About Hermosa View @ Vista

Hermosa View at Vista is the temporary home for Hermosa View School while the campus undergoes construction for the rest of 2021 and part of 2022. Hermosa View School has a tradition of academic excellence, of parental commitment and teacher dedication. Through the fundraising commitment of the parents and community, we have been able to continue to provide programs that promote the application of learning at the highest levels.

     As a small school, we enjoy a high level of communication and collaboration among the district, school administration, students, teacher, parents, and local citizenry. The different stakeholders in the school meet regularly to discuss and articulate what would enhance our students’ experiences, then work to implement appropriate programs. Hermosa View teachers employ a wide variety of Common Core learning strategies, experiences, and support services. Hermosa View School’s intimate size has created a neighborhood school culture in which student social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development are continually monitored and nurtured. The high level of involvement of our parents and community in every aspect of our educational programs is truly a reflection of the value placed on the tradition of excellence we expect for the children in Hermosa Beach.

     The inclusion of the MindUp program at Hermosa View School has provided students with a neuro-scientific understanding of learning to self-regulate behavior and mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic success. Kindergarten through second grade students sent to the office for a talk with the principal about behavior, will state that their “amygdala” took over their brain and they didn’t make a calm decision … along with a promise to be mindful in the future! During the day, the sound of chimes, softly travel throughout the school as a reminder that mindful learning and practices are taking place at Hermosa View School.
