We have twenty- three classrooms, a full library, a gymnasium, two changing rooms for students in Physical Education classes, and a multi-use room with a fully equipped stage for drama productions.
Our students walk to school, or they are transported by parents or the district bus service. We hold regular education classes throughout the day, and we also have a Resource program and an Inclusion classroom. We schedule students into four core classes each day, one Physical Education class, and one elective class. Our elective classes are Keyboarding, 21st Century Technology Skills, Health, Art, Industrial Arts/STEAM, Culinary Arts, Gardening, Study Skills, Leadership/ASB, Band, Choir, and Yearbook. Lakeview has an active PTSA and a School Site Council. PTSA meets monthly. The School Site Council meets at least three times a year, with the option of additional meetings if necessary. Lakeview has an active English Learner Advisory Committee that meets at least four times a year to help parents clearly understand the educational process so that they can positively interact with the school and thus become advocates for the education of their children. Lakeview Junior High School has been a proud member of the Orcutt Union School District for over fifty years.
