The Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District is pleased to introduce a new communications tool called Anonymous Alerts®.
What is the Anonymous Alerts app?
The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
The system allows for 1-way or 2-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters (students, parents or community members) and district administration and/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.
How does it work?
To use this revolutionary new app, students, parents or other school personnel can simply visit the Cottonwood-Oak Creek Schools website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button to submit a report expressing their concern. Anonymous Alerts® mobile applications can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or the Chrome stores.
COCSD supplies students with an activation code, making the app remarkably easy to use and students select which school the message should go to. In addition, informational posters explaining how to use the app will be displayed throughout schools and offices in the district.
Enrollment at Mountain View Preparatory is based soley on our wait list. There is a wait list for every grade level at this time. Please follow our links to our wait list in the, "Important Links" section on our website. Enrollment is not possible if the student has not been added to the wait list. PLEASE ONLY ADD YOUR STUDENT TO ONE WAIT LIST. This should reflect the earliest year you would like to enroll your student. Once you've requested to be added to a wait list confirmation will be sent via the email you provide. If a spot becomes available you will be notified by the school to move forward with enrollment at that time.
If you have any further questions please call the front office at (928) 649-8144.
INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE® PRIMARY YEARS PROGRAM (PYP)
As an authorized International Baccalaureate World School, Mountain View Preparatory aligns the IB philosophy with Arizona State and Cottonwood Oak Creek District Standards. The IB philosophy is based on the IB Mission Statement and the Learner Profile.
The International Baccalaureate® Primary Years Program (PYP) is designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the total growth of the developing child, touching hearts as well as minds and encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic development. At the heart of the program’s philosophy is a commitment to structured, purposeful inquiry as the leading vehicle for learning.
Our international focus teaches students about their own community and forges links to the world. The curriculum invites students to discover the interdependence of local, national and world cultures, builds an appreciation of diverse perspectives, and encourages active participation in our global society. Each child learns about the world through inquiry based on science and social studies, mathematics and language arts standards. These units encourage students to delve more deeply into transdisciplinary themes exploring: Who we Are; Where We Are in Place and Time; How We Express Ourselves; How the World Works; How We Organize Ourselves; and How We Share the Planet.
