Open Quote Ocean View is a great school and my children had a wonderful experience. This is definitely on of the best schools I have known. Close Quote

Open Quote Our son attended Kindergarten here and we really liked this school. The programs were great, and the teachers care about the children. Parent Involvement could be better, but there were not many opportunities for working parents to participate as much as there are for stay-at-home parents. Close Quote

Open Quote Grading policies, and teaching guidelines are inconsistent. Teacher didn't monitor AR reading program. When confronted with this leadership said that a 6 yr old was responsible for her own AR program but teacher didn't offer student any feedback. Focused on grades/test scores. If your child is making above 80% but you feel they don't quite "get it" this will fall on deaf ears because the "data" shows otherwise. The rigor isn't there. For example my daughter received 100% on all spelling tests in 1st gr and word study HW came very easy. Tested my daughter (after we withdrew) on a Stanford exam and her spelling was at K level, in the middle of 1st grade. Had concern that grades were entered in the gradebook after the semester. Took it to Superintendent level. Got a response that they reviewed the record themselves but wouldn't show me my daughters academic record to verify. Students do a lot of work independently but if they are incorrect nobody catches it. Out of date curriculum (Daily Language Review is from 1998 (it's on amazon). Worksheets had unreadable graphics bc they were so old. One picture was an actual stamp that was $0.29. Tests had typos and grading errors. Close Quote

Open Quote my oldest daughter has attended oves for 3 years (k-grade 2) & she is receiving a great education. there is not a lot of busy work, every assignment or task has a purpose. the school is very conscientious about teaching each child at their pace..."no child left behind" comes to mind. conversely, students who are high achievers like my daughter are challenged & motivated. from the start she was introduced to concepts & terms that I was not exposed to until much later in my education. we opted to start our younger daughter at oves this year in the pre-k program, transferring her from a local private day school, a decision that we are happy with.
the faculty & staff are energetic, dedicated professionals. oves is a maritime school so the science syllabus is based on marine life in the Chesapeake bay, very fitting given our location. the 5th graders have a special project of monitoring oyster floats at nauticus, & participate in guiding the younger classes when they visit.
we enjoy watching the students in fall & spring musical concerts. also noteworthy, the school is the cleanest facility I have ever seen.
my husband is a military officer. when we moved to the area a few years ago we were told to live in Virginia beach because of the schools. I am sooo glad that I did my research & found oves. my husband is able to live close to his work at the naval station, we have a beautiful home & my girls are receiving a solid education.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
