Grateful to: Teacher

Mrs. Sam is a wonderful teacher and we couldn't be happier with having her teach our daughter. We could not ask for a better kindergarten teacher! She genuinely cares about the kids and she gets them to learn while still having fun. We will be sad to see her go next year but wish her the best in retirement!

We love Oakview! The staff is absolutely amazing. We came from a school that was the complete opposite. My Son was afraid to go to school due the the teacher yelling all of the time. My Son is now completely comfortable going to school and looks forward to being there! Thank you Oakview!

We have so far been impressed by the close community at Oakview and are looking forward to participate in it. We have heard so much wonderful praise about Mrs Sam and are grateful our child has her this year for Kindergarten. I am impressed that Mrs Rabe gets many of the kids walking/exercising around the back playground prior to the first bell.

My daughter has really grown to love this school. We originally had her in Oakview because we were in the assigned boundries, but with a change in boundries the second year, we opted to stay in due to the community there. Like many parents there, I am actively involved in the school functions, and feel I have a voice in the direction the school takes. The Principal and teaching staff all embrace progressive learning, and technology is a foundation at every level. The class sizes seem to be manageable, and the parental involvement can really be felt at the classroom level. The PTC is very active and funds many of the enrichment activities offered throughout the year.

My daughter loves this school! She just started attending it this year and everyone was very welcoming. Unfortunately she can only stay for this year because the curriculum only goes to 5th grade. This school was a breath of fresh air compared to the open enrollment school she attended before. The principal at this school is outstanding and the teachers really care about their students.

My daughter is in 5th grade and has been going to Oakveiw since kindergarden. This school is full of wonderful teachers and is in the middle of transitioning to a new principle, but was were very picky in picking a new principle and have heard very good thing about him. Oakview is like a big family and the parent participation is amazing. I have been very happy and am sad that my daughter will have to move on after next year. :[ Thanks Oakveiw! Kristi W.

My son is entering his second year at Oakview and we have been very pleased with his success and progress. His teachers were very attentive to his needs; the principal always acknowledged me and my son when she saw us on campus, and everyone is friendly. The school is very clean and organized and allows for ease of structured learning. There is a nice balance of 'fun' activities and play time though - something all kids need. Let's all remember: schools are only truly successful when the parents work together with the teachers to help the kids excel. We cannot 'ship' them there and expect them to do the work. This is an excellent school. Allison Adams

There is no family feeling about this school. For kids with disabilities it's very uneasy and can makes them frightened. Parents are too worried if you've checked in the office rather than getting to know you and be aquainted with you! This school was forced on my child after the closure of a school he loved and felt very comfortable with. Shame on the school district for doing this to our special needs children and shame on the principle for not making families feel more comfortable with these situations!!!!

Oakview has been an absolute blessing for my daughter. The principle ia an amazing open-minded compassionate leader. The teachers have always gone above and beyond to accommodate our needs. They have a great balance of structure and fun. Thank You Oakview staff for getting it done! Sincerely Lisa Elliott

Was a nice school, but the new principal likes to hear herself talk. Kids line up everywhere they go.

My daughter has been a student at Oakview for the past two years. Both her Kindergarten teacher and her first grade teacher were very attentive and caring. The teachers were always willing to take time either before school or after school if I had any questions or concerns regarding my daughter's school performance. They were also very sensitive to her well being and would seek me out if she had a hard day or if something upset her at school. I felt very connected and consequently 'tuned in' to her school day thanks to the teachers who were happy to keep me informed and involved. The teachers always had an open door policy as well--I could drop in anytime and observe or help out in the classroom. My daughter has had a great start in school both academically and socially thanks to the great efforts of her Oakview teachers.
