Meet Our Principal

Dr. Phillip Reavis

Dr. Phillip Reavis, PrincipalI became principal at Oakview Elementary School in 2001-2002. I was formerly an Assistant Principal at the school for the previous two years. I came to Oakview with eleven years of experience as an elementary school teacher and guidance counselor and also served as an administrator for five years in private education.

I was drawn to the Oakview school community by its reputation for strong partnerships in education. Involved parents, eager students, a professional and caring faculty/staff, and tremendous support from business partners were all evident. I am honored to be a part of the Oakview team!

I completed my bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and received a Masters Degree in School Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I earned my Education Specialist Degree in Educational Administration from Converse College and a PhD in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina at Columbia.

Since beginning my career as an educator, I was named Teacher of the Year for the Iredell-Statesville School System in Statesville, North Carolina in the 1991-1992 school year. In the spring of 2012 and 2022, I was named South Carolina PTA Outstanding Elementary Principal of the Year. To deepen my understanding of education, I traveled to Germany to observe in Bavarian schools, considered to be some of the best in Europe. Through these, and many other experiences, I join the Oakview community in fulfilling its mission of providing a quality education for children. It is truly exciting to see what can happen at a school when everyone works together to create a "habitat for learning!"

I feel that the bottom line for any principal should always be the students. In making any decision about curriculum, school programs, etc., the impact on students should always be considered. I count it a privilege to serve as Oakview's principal and look forward to working alongside the students, faculty and parents as we continue to achieve excellence in education in Greenville County.
