About Us

Hello and welcome to EastView’s webpage. My name is Kelly Ford and I am the principal at EastView. As a child growing up at EastView, I also felt the sense of belonging and knew my teachers held high expectations for students. The culture has not changed. Our teachers truly believe that ALL students are important. As a school, we believe student success is the responsibility of all. We strive each day to promote growth and achievement while encouraging students to become independent thinkers and learners. Our school models and communicates expectations for individual and shared ownership of student, educators, and school success. EastView is a PreK-5th grade school.
