    All About Kids

Founded in 1961, Viewpoint School educates 1,200 students in grades TK–12 on a scenic 40-acre campus in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains. Head of school/president Mark McKee has been a leader in education for more than two decades and at Viewpoint for nine years.

Describe some of your notable events and achievements.

Each year, Viewpoint punctuates its first week of school with an All-School Convocation. It opens with our kindergarten class walking through the human tunnel of our senior class (see featured image above). Students from each division share their thoughts about the school year, and we recognize valued faculty and staff with prizes for excellence.

Last fall our varsity boys cross-country team was the Division 5 CIF champion for the second year. Our varsity girls cross-country team was the Gold Coast champion. Our middle school swim team won the San Fernando Valley Private School League championship. 

Our student filmmakers brought home Best Film and Best Ensemble at the Calabasas Film Festival. We enjoyed memorable theatre productions and strings, choir, and band concerts throughout the year.

In what ways do you celebrate diversity?

Viewpoint is a school community where families value and honor unity in diversity. We strive to work collaboratively, continuously deepening much-needed levels of trust, curiosity and respect—especially during these challenging times. Our Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Life has collaborated across departments to offer new programming schoolwide. Throughout the year, we honor and continue to build upon existing initiatives and host events to build community. We learn about traditionally marginalized folks from guest and in-house speakers, and through specially curated events and celebrations.

Viewpoint recently transformed our original weight room into our 1,800-square-foot Peak Performance Center for athletic training and sports medicine. This full-service facility, made possible by generous donors, provides space for our trainers to better serve students and employees—both physically and emotionally. It features a dedicated ice bath and freezer area, four therapy tables, and a redesigned strength and fitness space.
