Welcome to West Oakview!

We are an elementary school in the Northview Public School District in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This year we have 378 students. These students range from our Great Start Readiness Program (4 year olds) to fourth grade.  We are also home to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program for Kent County.

Our students focus everyday on being RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, READY and SAFE.  We also work to be a bully-free school by requiring our students to follow our district wide "Expect Respect" guidelines.

Our Team consists of highly qualified teachers and paraprofessionals, social workers, food service providers, administrative assistants, playground supervisors, and custodians who work together to create a caring, quality educational setting.

Please feel free to visit our school or continue through this web site to get to know us better.

The Northview Board of Education has approved the placement of a “Renewal of the 18 Mills  of Non-Homestead Millage” on the November 4, 2014 ballot.  There is no tax rate increase.  The tax applies only to commercial and industrial property and second homes, not primary residences. Voters would be renewing the tax, which expires in 2015, for 10 years, 2016 to 2025. The renewal would generate approximately $3 million for the district in 2016 for general operations for classrooms.  Please vote on Tuesday, November 4.
