This was my daughter's first year. She was in Kindergarten and I have to say this was the greatest experience and she loved it! Her teacher, Mrs. Brandenburg and Asst. teacher Ms. Wester truly love their students and care aboout their lives and their success in school. I wish they could move with her to every grade level! The staff is always so friendly and I love how everyone is really involved in helping one another succeed. By far one of the best experiences as a Mother I've had yet! :)

I absolutely love this school. This year was the first for my children, who were in 3rd and 4th grade. Almost instantly they felt welcomed and it seemed as if they had been there since kindergarten. My son had a few behavioral issues but the staff all did their best to help him and encourage him to do his best and participate in class. Mrs. Bare was always easy to be found and available to talk if needed. Looking forward to the upcoming school year at Oakview.

This School is great, safe and has an excellent learning environment. All of my kids were in this School and they learned to much, about how to behave, be a good student, etc. Thank you so much to all the teachers and employees, they are doing a very good job.

WOW! Being that 2010-2011 was our first year at Oak View, we were very worried about this rating of a 3 from great schools. Mrs. Bare and the admin staff are wonderful! Mrs Millen is a GREAT kindergarten teacher partnered with her asst. Mrs. A.! We couldn't have been more pleased with the school and are proud to call ourselves Oak View Bears!! Thanks everyone!

We currently have a first grader at Oak View and have been very pleased. We are coming from a private school so were worried about the level of careing teachers and learning she'd receive. It is great, a school of excellence, her class size is small (16), the teacher (Briley) great and devoted, and our child loves it. We are glad we moved her to this school and would strongly recommend it to others. The principal is also very involved and they have a strong PTA.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
