Amazing teachers and principal. We love this school.
Is good, the principal and teachers are amazing!! but they need to do something to solve the bullying problem right away!!
This is a Great School. It saddens me to see the reviews about it being so cliquey. I have two children currently enrolled here and have been involved with the school for over 18 years with nieces and nephews. This school has a solid small group of parents involved in the PTC that work side by side with the staff to make everything happen. It concerns me that people may perceive this as a closed group of people that don't want or need other parent’s involvement when that is entirely not the case. Like all of our schools in the district, the budget is stripped down giving the Principle little to work with. It is because of this group of people that the school is able to afford things like teacher’s aides, crossing guards, yard duties, and reading programs. This group of people, that are unfortunately getting labeled cliquey, put together fundraisers throughout the year that raise over $15,000. This money all gets donated back to the school to fund things like I listed. I understand that most parents work full time making it hard to get involved and I totally get that, but for those that have time to donate to help we welcome you with open arms. (We have some of our meetings at 6 pm to accommodate working parents) I am sure it may be tough to walk into a PTC meeting where everyone already knows everyone, but don’t mistake that for you not being welcome and I apologize if anyone has felt that way. Like any social situation walking into a group of people that have been working together on these fundraisers for years may be intimidating, but trust me we can use all the help parents are willing to give. We are all in this for one common goal which is to give out children the best elementary school education and experience as possible and that takes the support of everyone involve. Unlike the other reviews, I encourage you to contact me and the school directly so I can share my experiences with you. My name is Greg and I am the PTC Vice President and the office has my contact info. I hope that you consider our community for your children.
This is my childs second year at Oakview. I'm sad to say that I am beginning to hate this school. The pick drop off and pick up situation is hellacious! The staff and parents are cliquey. The principal is not receptive to your concerns. They hire people based on who you know not what you know. I'm currently trying to transfer out of the school. Avoid if possible!
