Our Mission

The mission of Clubview School is to inspire and equip students to become life-long learners who exhibit the attributes of the IB Learner Profile and to achieve unlimited potential as international-minded citizens in our global society. 

Our History

Clubview School was built in 1953 as a neighborhood school. In 2004 Clubview became the first International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program in Georgia and the district’s first Conversion Charter School. Today Clubview proudly prepares students for success as 21st century citizens of the world.

Our Governing Board

As a Georgia Charter School, Clubview Elementary School is governed by a Governing Board made up of seven voting members who are four parents of currently enrolled students and three community members including one Partner in Education representative. The principal, assistant principal, IB/PYP coordinator and two teachers will serve on the Governing Board but will abstain from voting. The Governing Board upholds Clubview’s vision and mission and establishes and monitors general policies of the school. The board also manages and monitors the school’s annual budget and addresses grievances.

Our Partner in Education

Our business partner, Columbus Regional Healthcare Systems, has been highly supportive of Clubview through their sponsorship of the Amazing Ambassador breakfast, the Manners Club, Wonderful Wednesdays, and a multitude of other activities which support the overall program. In turn, Clubview students support the efforts of Columbus Regional to raise healthy children by participating in County’s Reindeer Run and the lighting of the Tree of Lights to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.
