School History:
Northview Elementary School’s doors first opened in 1952. The south side of the building was added in 1957 and several rooms were added in 1983. The building was completely retrofitted in 1994 with new windows for energy efficiency, new air conditioning and heating systems, and upgraded electrical standards.Most recently, Northview, along with many of the other Valparaiso Schools, underwent a massive renovation project updating all of the classrooms, and adding a new gym.
