Loma Vista Farm

The Loma Vista Farm is an working farm and outdoor classroom which supports the academic and environmental programs of Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy, a public K-8 school.  Support for the animals comes from the Friends of Loma Vista Farm.

Rainier and Olympic Streets to be Paved Beginning June 12, 2017

PAVING IN COMING, PAVING IS COMING!!! The VCUSD has advertised and awarded the paving project to fix the street that loops around Loma Vista!  In an effort to lessen the impact to the school, we have scheduled the work to begin on June 12, 2017.   The project will only take two weeks and will be completed by June 23rd.  Access during the summer program:  Both sides of the road will be closed to vehicle traffic.  However, the sidewalks will be open and available.   If you are in a classroom on the elementary side of the campus, you will need to walk up to the corner, cross the street, and walk down the other side.  Drop off and pick up will need to be on Corcoran Street. Farm Access: Both sides of the road will be closed to vehicle traffic.  However, the sidewalks will be open and available.    Asphalt will only take two days.  Summer School - Hoot Camp students will need to be dropped off at Corcoran Street.  Parents may walk their children down the sidewalk to the cafeteria.

Congratulations Loma Vista!

Principal Britt Hammon

Principal HammonHello Friends and Family,

There are many things which make Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy a special place for learning. We remain committed to working together as a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More), to utilize the knowledge and skills each Team member possesses, to communicate, and to partner effectively with parents to ensure their child's success in school. Our vision continues to be to create a learning community where every child will achieve to his/her highest potential. Loma Vista is a safe place where children are free to learn, grow, make mistakes and learn from these mistakes. We provide a challenging program to all students in a caring way, with support systems for all levels.

We are very pleased with the progress we have made developing as an Environmental Science Academy over the last four years.  All classes and students visit the Loma Vista Farm each week and participate in hands-on cooking, animal care, vegetable farming, and science lessons taught by their Teachers, Farmer Rita, Farmer Alisha, and sometimes the Principal!

Loma Vista is also home to only one of two working farms in the country. The Loma Vista Farm is an outdoor classroom that provides children with standards based hands-on learning opportunities to bolster their academic skills in reading, writing, math, social science, language arts and science. To learn more about the farm, please visit the Loma Vista Farm website which can be found on the top of this page. For your convenience, the farm website is http://www.lomavistafarm.org.

We are very lucky to have a dedicated STEAM lab for our students in grades K-5.  Our students work on long-term projects which incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. LVESA has won STEAM awards two years in a row. We have Mrs Imelda Enos and Ms. Dajah Lewis who work with our students and classroom teachers.

When choosing a school for your children, please consider Loma Vista.  As a K-8 school we are able to offer a close-knit family-centered school which offers many supports to students and families.  Our Academic Support Provider, Carmen Cassius, is our school-community link who works to remove all barriers to student success. 

Looking forward to our Partnership,

Britt Hammon, Principal

It's always a great day to be an Owl!
