15 Parent Reviews for Olive Chapel Elementary School

I feel OCE has an exceptionally strong bond among the parents because the parents and kids (in each track) have an opportunity to bond over time since they are together for all of elementary school versus a year round school where your child will be placed with kids in their grade which includes 5-6 ...  Read more

My daughter finished with Olive Chapel and had a good experience, but my second grader has not. New and inexperienced teachers at every grade, overcrowded, and no nurturing support. I feel my son is loosing valuable time at this school. I feel the school has gone backwards in terms of progress.

My son is in 2nd grade now. We are not pleased with the qualification of teachers. Instead of focusing on providing quality care for little children, they are rule keepers. They do not care about students' emotional/mental/psychological health at all. They worry too much about not being in trouble after ...  Read more

We switched from a small private school with a 6:1 student teacher ratio and I am just as pleased with the quality of education at OCE as the private school. Also, the discipline and organization are even better! My children are now learning to take responsiblity for their work. My only disappointment ...  Read more

My daughter started kindergarten in OCE in 07-08. We like the school. She is happy and well-instructed. She is motivated to do well. The school offers loads of parent involvement, from being able to visit your child for lunch, to the more elaborate Artapalooz event. I think the school does its job. I ...  Read more

I am so happy with OCE! It is a year-round school. We are in Track 2. My daughter is in 1st grade and we feel so blessed to have such an amazing teacher! Thank you OCE!

My son is also ADHD, Sensory Integration Disorder, the teachers have been well prepared, and I have donated numerous books to the school to help with the overall adjustment to each level year. He has performed ...  Read more
