Curricular and Enrichment Initiatives
In addition to the regular curriculum, Island View students have benefited from a variety of enrichment programs in Art, Math, Music, Language Arts and Science. In the past, the school has served as an enrichment magnet school for the district, as well as providing internal enrichment opportunities for its own children. Heritage Week is celebrated annually at Island View, as an occasion to provide children with enrichment opportunities; this year's heritage enrichment theme is transportation.
Island View has served as a pilot school for a number of provincial curricular initiatives and resources in the areas of Art, Intensive French,Language Arts, Social Studies, Guidance, and Physical Education.

Numerous field trips have been held including trips to museums, the Hammond River Marshes, the Irving Nature Park, Rockwood Park, a maple sugar farm, Kings Landing and the Huntsman Marine Center in St. Andrew’s.
