I give this school a 5+! The principal is amazing and truly shows how much she cares about our children. She is very involved in all activities and encourages teachers and parents to do so as well.

My child is in first grade this year and he loves his teacher. She is very patient and kind and he loves being in her class - he always has a big smile as he heads up the ramp to her room. All of the first grade teachers are very kind and helpful and I feel lucky to live in such a wonderful school district.

My son just finished first grade at Olita this past spring. Although we did see some academic improvement, I thought that the communication at teacher level was lacking. Notes sent to the teacher went unanswered, which I feel is unacceptable. I also feel that some of the administrative staff at the ...  Read more

The reason this school is so successful is because of the excellent teaching staff! They have too many kids in the classroom, but they don't let it affect their students. I feel my child has gotten a good education at this school. There isn't much in the way of fine arts or sports, but many schools today ...  Read more

This was my son's first year at Olita and I was very pleased with his results. I agree that there are not enough programs in the way of music, arts, and computers.
