About Us - Oakview

Hello Oakview Families!

We are ready to endeavor into another great school year. This past school year Oakview students showed us what they were made of. Our data shows that every student made growth during the school year. Our state test scores show us that every student was able to pass the 3rd Grade Reading Guarantee and we achieved passing grades as a school in 6 of the state tests. I am proud of the hard work our students and staff put into every school day. 

All of our academic data is amazing, but our #1 priority is still school safety. In a student survey over 95% of our students say they feel safe while at Oakview. It is our priority to get that to 100%. In cooperation with the Kettering Police Department we work towards creating a safe environment for our Oakview families. We want you to feel good about leaving your student with us on a daily basis. If you or your child ever feel they are not safe at Oakview, please reach out to their teacher, our counselor, or me to express your concerns. 

Our staff is ready to work with your child and get the best out of them. We are excited for another great school year and we hope you are too.

I look forward to seeing all of you at some point throughout the school year. If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me. I can be reached via email at, by phone at 937-499-1870 or you can also schedule a time to come in and meet face to face.
