This school is outstanding. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers and staff are amazing. I couldnt ask for a more incredible school for my children to attend! My children absolutely love everything about Oak View and the community!
I love the full day kindergarten, full day of engagement with music, crafts, and of course academics. Excellent!
We recently attended the school's Back to School Night. Although many of us parents really miss Mr. Scully and his friendly ways, I think we'll do just fine as long as the awesome teachers like Nelson, Andrade, Stout, and Frankie are still there to help our children. Actually there probably isn't a bad teacher on the whole staff. Not many schools can say that! The new principal isn't as personable as Mr. Scully but she seems to be trying real hard. The new VP seems like a breath of fresh air. Definitely a HUGE improvement over the last couple of years. And the school grounds looked bright and fresh just like always thanks to Mr. Maceedo and his staff. We're looking forward to another great year at Oak View School!!!
We were going to put our children in private school until we took a closer look at Oak View which is the school in our district and realized it was better than the private schools in our area. We have not been disappointed. Our children have succeeded far more than we ever thought possible for their ages. The teachers are fantastic and we look forward to many more years with Oak View.
When we have visited their homes, I have reviewed my three grandchildren's homework and helped them with some of the lessons and I am very impressed with the quality of work that is done by them all. The children are very well informed and able to do the homework very well. I also think the time the teachers put into the programs shows when the children do their different performances. I do hope their school is considered for this award. The teachers really deserve a special 'Thank You' for all the great work they do. If you have been there to see the special programs in which they all are involved, it would be very obvious how much work the teachers and students put into their school days.
The teachers and principal are great. This is a K-8 school with only about 420 students and I love this school.
4 years ago, my husband took a job 2 hours away. We discussed moving closer to his job but decided against it. Why? Oak View School! We looked at all the schools within a 50 mile radius of the job and not one compared to Oak View. The test scores are better than average, our teachers are phenomenal, we can still pray, have Christmas and Easter break, encourage each other with hugs and have a cafeteria with REAL food versus all the processed foods most schools now serve. Our bus drivers/maintenance care about the kids as much as the teachers do. It is a K-8 school and just about all the kids know each other and the older kids look out for the younger kids. More like a big extended family than a school.
I would like to express my thanks during this time of Thanksgiving to the wonderful staff at Oak View. As we were giving thanks at our dinner table our youngest said that he was thankful for his awesome school and great teacher. He's right Mr. Andrade! Your awesome! This is the third (and last!) child of ours that you've had. You've been amazing with all of them. Our high-schooler still talks about you. Keep up the good work. And Mr. Skullie, your great to. We love Oak View Elementary!
We love oakview school ! This school has been great ! My 3 kids have been in this school since (2002) they have met so many great teachers, friends, the school staff has been a big help in our education, also they have been very supportive to me, my husband and especially our kids through all of their dads hospital stays. Thank you so much to mr. Scully and all staff glad to have you back in our school again. M.O.
I love this school. The Kinder team is fantastic!! Especially Miss Nelsen. She is spunky and fun & has very high standards. Her kids leave very smart & happy!! Couldn't be happier!!
I am very impressed by the new principal. He is a breath of fresh air for our little country school. It's a very nice change from how it used to be. I have found him to be very approachable and fair. Other administrators at this school should take notice and strive to be more like him.
I have never worked with such wonderful, professional educators. The family support is fantastic and the kids are totally committed to their education. This school is a beacon of hope for the school system in California.
Without a doubt, Ms. Macintosh is the best, caring about her students in her second grade class, ive seen her in action, and am very proud of her! r.B
This School Is Very Nice I Think All The Staff are nice.This School Should Be Awarded For The Best School Award
I must disagree with last post. OV is not overcrowded; it has suffered quite a student loss and good teachers were forced to go elsewhere. Numbers are back up, and they are anything but 'overcrowded'. As far as I know, all 'afterschool' activities are the same as they have always been. No change. I'm happy! OV was called a 'Shining Star' in the paper.
I am dissappointed in the school this year. It is over crowded and to many inter district kids. The new principle is trying his best, but I am just very unhappy about the current situation with the school. This school also has no activities for after school. I do think some of the staff need to be replaced with kind caring staff.
Great School. Staff and custodians are very friendly and helpful. Good country atmosphere. I love this school.
This school has changed my child's life. The principal and teachers are awesome. It deserves to be one of California's Distinguished Schools!
