    My granddaughter went to kindergarten at another larger Kettering school...and hated it. For first grade we put her in Oakview - and she is now in 3rd and doing great. Loves the school and we have good communication with the teachers. While no school is perfect and there will always be "that one teacher" or children that just don't do well I feel Kettering does a great job. And coming from a family of educators that is saying a lot!

    OAKVIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS THE BEST SCHOOL FOR MY FAMILY! My 3 kids who currently attend love they're teacher's staff friend's and all the parent's they meet. They love learning because the teacher's make it so exciting and as a parent I am so happy with my kid's progress because of Oakvie's concern patience and interest in my children's education. I would like to see the outside field's and inside gym used for after-school intermeral's available free to ALL Oakview Student's; ran by teacher staff community and parent volenteer's; equiptment paid for ny donation's! And I'd like to see after school free tutoring programs possably held in the cafeteria library or wherever in Oakview building also with the help of volenteer's. I have many ideas but need to get involved myself so keep up the great work and I'm looking forward to sharing many more year's together with Oakview! Thank-yo all so very much for everything you do for our family and other's! Respectfully Your's The Hawkins Family

    HORRIBLE!!! My nephew just got out of the 5th grade and is very depressed. He was treated so bad and other parents are outraged with what they saw as well. We have had several parents come up to us during the summer wanting to know how my nephew is doing. They all have the most horrible stories with what they saw. The school would do nothing to stop the bullying from the teacher. Choose a different school for your child!

    I would like to offer Oakview a standing ovation they have truly grasped the concept of a modern school and work together to individually meet the need of each & every student in the building. No one is left behind or held back from achieving greatness. They spend the first few weeks of school testing these kids in & out the results are compiled & indidual plans are made. If your child is gifted with an ability to perform beyond what's expected they catch it as early as kindergarten & differentiate their lessons in every aspect from spelling list homework math expectatations & more. I feel very confident that I couldn't BUY a better education for my child. Thanks Oakview!!! You ROCK!

    All at Oakview are very concientious and great for their (our) kids! It is a fun and complete program including many many opportunities for extra-curricular programs. The care program is very good before and after school too!
