Olive Elementary is a special school full of wonderful kids, dedicated teachers and staff, and energetic generous parents. Both my kids have been challenged there and I only wish it would become a K-8!

Kids eat lunch with dirty hands. Nobody does anything about it and when you tell your concerns to the principle she protects herself by blaming you for harassment.

Most of the kids in school are out of order, aggressive bullies, even girls and guards invented all kinds of disciplinary methods like after the guard blows the whistle everybody should take a knee. If your child was bullied morally and comes home and complains and you will go to talk to the teacher ...  Read more

Olive Elementary School
Novato Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
