We have had a great experience at Oakview. Dr. Reavis is great, and the school has such a welcoming atmosphere. Parents are very involved, teachers have been great, and my daughter has thrived there. When she's sad to hear that it's almost summer (because she will miss school), I know they are doing something right.

Love this school and support. The teachers brought my child from a child with auditiory response delay to all A's and a B that was a pt from an A. A-B honor roll for two years. There are the right programs in place to have supported and corrected this. So grateful. Love and passion for teaching and learning are at Oakview. The school fair. The scjool is positive. The school is absolutely beautiful.

(Oct. 2014) This school used to be a much better school. Now it has degraded quite some. If you look at the PASS scores, this school is behind Monarch Elementary, and some other good schools in this area. If you look at the School reports, this school is not any better than other schools that have the same/similar students profiles/demography. The school committee (Principle etc.) seem to be more focused on Fund Raising than academic education. Some real experiences, 1) the school allowed a teacher to take a 8-week leave for a cosmetic (optional) surgery when it can be done at any Summer time, the substitute teacher was someone who works at Staples office store (seasonally); 2) the school would arrange a well-into-pregnancy teacher to teach for just a few weeks (from beginning of Fall to mid Sept.) and then go-on maternity leave for ~9 weeks with a substitute covering that time. In this situation, there should be a better arrangement for the benefit of everyone, especially for the innocent children! 3) Similarly, when a teacher was known to retire soon she was still put to teach and was only to be replaced right in the middle of the year - children are the ones who suffer!

Great school and great staff! Teachers are wonderful, and they are always encouraging parents to be involved in our chidlrens education.

Wonderful school! We could not be happier with OES on all fronts! We believe OES far surpasses private schools in Greenville. My third grade child is doing higher level math than our neighbors in same grade at two different, quite expensive schools. If you child is smart and can handle him/herself, he/she will excel at OES!

My 6 year old daughter and I moved from Detriot to Greenville after a TERRIBLE divorice and I was worried sick that my daughter would have a rough time in school. By about the 5th day of school she would come home with a huge smile on her face and talk about her new friends and wonderful teacher trust me, Oakview is WONDERFUL.

My child attended Oakview k5-5th grade and we loved it. The staff and PTA was wonderful. The principal was not always envolved with student activities.

We moved to the area two years ago from Maryland and our kids had been attending one of the best schools in Montgomery Co, MD which are well known for being greats schools. In comparison, Oakview is more progressive with sciences and math than MD. Kids recieve significantly more homework than they did in MD and were exposed to more things like the gardening club, planting crops, harvesting apples, recycling and more. One of my daughters who has special needs has performed exceptionally well in regular ed classes with an aid. GREAT SCHOOL!! GREAT COMMUNITY!!

Time to do a little critical analysis, which few people tend to do these days. Recently received the report card from the state of SC on Oakview's rating. The rating was excellent. Instead of jumping up and down and giving each other high fives, let's look at what that means. It seems that nearly every other school similar to Oakview's surrounding socioeconomic status also received the same rating. So, it seems the excellent rating is more a function of a school's surrounding income level, not necessarily the quality of the teachers and admin. Not a very meaningful rating and it certainly should be addressed by the principal instead of claiming the rating is due to the specific achievements of the school. It always pays to read the fine print.

We chose this school for our children because everyone raved about it; however, we were disappointed by the lack of antibullying at the school even when teachers/principal are aware of the issue.
