This is my 8th year at Olinda. I can't even start thanking all the great teachers and staff we have at this great school. My son graduated and now my daughter is in 4th grade. We will always miss all the great teachers who retired and gave our children their best. Ms. Heckman, Ms. Price, Mr. Kresch and the great Mr. Ryder. You are and will be missed. The teachers who moved on to be great leaders in other schools, Ms. Velez and Ms. Heydary. Thank you for all you did for our children! We'll miss you but we will be seeing you soon we hope. Our big welcome to our new teachers, we hope we can create a great relationship like we had with our former teachers! Welcome to the Olinda Family...

Both my children attended Olinda Elementary school. At the time, I had many concerns, complaints, etc. But now they are both college students at an Ivy League college. Looking back, I see it was a wonderful school! The only thing missing were some trees to provide shade during lunch and breaks.

After years of rumors surrounding a possible closure, Olinda has achieved "Distinguished School" status, which confirms what so many Olinda families have known all along; we have an amazing community that provides an excellent environment for students to start out their educational journey.

We are new to the school this year with a child in kindergarten and first grade. Our children love their teachers! Although it is early in the year we are happy so far with the teachers. Our concerns include: lack of arts and music; way too much homework (12 pages in one week); and lack of inclusiveness for diverse families. When we approached the teacher regarding inclusiveness she was receptive and immediately made some changes. There is a very active welcoming parent community. We are happy to have a quality school within walking distance.
