Oak View Middle School History

  • Oak View Middle School bandOak View Middle School opened its doors in the fall of 1996 with an enrollment of 950 students. The school was built to accommodate the growing population of students in Andover and to ease crowded conditions at Coon Rapids Middle School and Fred Moore Middle School in Anoka.

    Oak View was named for the many stands of Red Oak in the area around the site chosen for the school. The school’s community selected a bobcat as the school’s mascot and its colors as burgundy and gray, which were changed to black, white and gold the spring of 2018. Today’s enrollment at Oak View has grown to nearly 1,300 students, and its feeder schools are Andover Elementary, Rum River Elementary, and Crooked Lake Elementary. Most of Oak View’s students go on to attend Andover High School.
