My child was very dissappointed by the lack of after school activities because most of them involved sports and my child did not want to do a sport. Also some of the teachers were quite strict. My child overall was not always satisfied with Oakview.

My child has been at Oakview for 2 years now. It is a wonderful school, with caring, concerned teachers and staff. I have nothing but praise and great things to say about Oakview. The academic program is appropriately challenging. The teachers go above and beyond to help all students.

I am Not a parent but i went to oakview and it was the best school I've went to. All the teachers are very nice and are willing to help you with any problem that you have. I went from all D's to All A's and B's because the teacher were willing to help me with everything. There is alot of after school activities, and if there isn't something your child likes then they can talk to the student council members and they can talk to the school and some teachers and maybe start a new club. The Teachers are alot of fun. This is the best school ever.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
