23 Parent Reviews for Olivenhain Pioneer Elementary School

The teachers and the staff are great and the education is first-rate. However, I am docking two stars from my rating because according to NBC news today -- Olivenhein Pioneer Elementary School has the second highest percentage of unvaccinated students in San Diego County. According to NBC News 17% ...  Read more

My child has enjoyed both very good and less than stellar years at OPE. If your child is placed with a dedicated teacher, then he/she will learn and grow. If not, you're out of luck. Also, there is way too much homework, so much so that my child does nothing else after a day of an extracurricular activity. ...  Read more

Agree with the prior more recent reviews. Excellent school for the most part but definitely caters to certain parents - interesting how the children of those parents always get the best teachers. Too much homework and not impressed at all with the principal. She was not willing to work with me as a ...  Read more

Excellent school! The teachers care, and our kids have learned a lot. My ONLY problem is that there is too much homework. My older child often doesn't have time for anything else after school. I still gave 5 stars because I think all California schools might be like this (my nephews have same issue ...  Read more

We love OPE. Our daughter is happy and learning a lot. The teachers have been wonderful and the principal is focused on many important issues that affect our children and schools. We moved to Encinitas for the schools and we have been more than pleased.

My kids are up until late at night finishing work after sports. Good teachers for the most part, however, we are NOT impressed with the new principal, she is very ...  Read more

Our kids have recently started their second year at O.P.E. and we are very happy to be at this school. The faculty collaborates with parents to try to resolve your special requests or concerns. The teachers we have had are all above par, and love teaching. It shows in the dedication to their students ...  Read more

This school has many positive aspects however much has been overrated. The test scores have much to do with the parent support children get at home both directly from the parent and often through tutors that they hire. The homework load is beyond what is necessary leaving little time for recreational ...  Read more

Reading reviews online can be somewhat misleading due to the individual motivations and circumstances of each parent writing a review. I have had children at OPE for years and have found teachers and administrators to be very responsive to any concerns or questions my children or I have had. Bullying ...  Read more

Not a day goes by that I don't thank God that my kids are out of this school. I am grateful to the kid who beat up my kid who beat up my kid right in front of the principal while she stood next to me and laughed insisting they were playing. My son was clear that they were not. I pulled all 3 of my kids ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
