Broad View is a top-notch school. Staff is welcoming and parent volunteerism is high. Most of the teachers are excellent and strive to make learning fun and memorable. BVE's principal is very involved and supportive with PTA and activities. Communication from school to home is commendable. BVE's PTA membership to student ratio is highest in the district.

We moved out of Oak Harbor last February, but we'll be returning next summer. BVE is a great school, and we can't wait to get back. Teachers and staff at BVE are wonderful, and they truly care about you and your children. The PTA is extremely active, too, bringing in wonderful programs with minimal fundraising. The playgound area is terrific, with plenty of places to play and a great walking trail. This really is one of the best schools in Oak Harbor!

I know only of the kindergarten the curriculum for them seems suitable but with 25 kids in the am and 25 kids in the pm and one teacher to teach both classes children are being left behind

Broad View Elementary is one of the best schools in Oak Harbor. They have a wonderful staff, and the teachers are very dedicated. The PTA is very active, and it is the only school in the district that has an after-school enrichment program (provided at a nominal charge by the PTA). Broad View also houses the gifted program. The specialists are also wonderful, expecially the PE and music teachers. The principal is fair and approachable. My two children (kind. and 2nd grade) both love their teachers. For a town with so many military coming and going, this school provides a stable, caring and academically sound environment.

I feel that the 'Ace' program at this school is a joke. I think that the school is just putting a 'label' on students and teachers (who are not qualified to teach 'ACE' children) thinking that their school has a better curriculum to offer.

BVE is one of the most desired schools in OHSD. The teachers are top-notch, finding creative ways to teach and hold the interest of our students. Our music teacher is the BEST-offering special programs for each grade level, never repeating endeavors. Our PE teacher started 2 after school sports programs,and offered a Running club during recess. He finds ways to encourage kids to be active outside of PE class. BVE offers an ACEprogram for highly capable students, and 2x a yr all students can participate in an after school Enrichment program that is taught by parents, teachers or other community members. BVE's academic quality has improved over the years & is regarded as one of the best elementary schools in OH.

This school has the gifted program and it seems to be doing great. Also, the staff that works with the special needs children are really great to work with.

Broad View is an excellent elementary school. They have wonderful programs for the kids, the Read Well program is one of the best. The teachers really care about their students and their progress. This school is also fun for the students with their spirit days, sock hop and new playground equipment. Volunteers are always welcome and the PTA is very supportive of the school. It is also a very safe school, I do not need to worry about my two children while they are there.

BVE is a very good school. The teachers are very helpful in working with kids who accelerate as well as kids who needs some extra work. I am a parent volunteer & feel very welcomed at the school. The PTA is supportive of parents and teachers. They also provide a lot of extras for the kids.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
