Ms.Coley is an amazing principal first off. All of the teachers I have had any interaction with have been wonderful. My daughter has been at Oliver for two years now.

I found out today that next school year (2005 06) Oliver Elementary will no longer offer the after school program and for that reason it looks as if I will be moving my child to another school system. I regret that it has come to this but evidently the superintendent does not think the students at

Cutting the after school program out at Oliver will force parents that have relied on the program to seek substandard child care and possibly force some parents that can t afford to move their children to another school, to have their children come home alone. That would be dangerous! The teachers that have been working in the program at Oliver Elem. are caring and very qualified. Education at Oliver. Read less

I have been actively involved with Oliver for 5 years now, serving as PTA President for 2 of those years. Oliver has a great faculty that strives to give the children the best education possible.

Over all Oliver is a good school for the community in which it serves. The grade averages are comparable to larger, better funded facilities.
