I find the Principal and teachers are doing an excellent job at this school. My daughter has only been here two years but I am already impressed by the educators there. They go far and beyond to see that my daughter gets the best education and experience she can possibly get in school. Thank you Oliver in all that you do.

Ms.Coley is an amazing principal first off. All of the teachers I have had any interaction with have been wonderful. My daughter has been at Oliver for two years now. She has been in Ms.Foxx's class and this year Ms.Gill and both are amazing teachers! All of the kindergarten teachers are fantastic and care so much for the children. The only complaint I would have about Oliver is the lack of funding, which obviously can't be helped. With the proper resources, this school could easily achieve highest academic ratings.

This is a GREAT school! Ms. Coley the principal, Ms. Fox and Ms Corbitt who work in Pre K, Ms McMurray in the first grade and Ms. Knolls in the Media Center have all been such a big help to me and my children attending. The teachers truly seems to care about the students. If I could have one wish granted regarding Oliver it would be that the facility would be updated and improved. But for what the facility lacks the teachers more than make up the difference. Keep up the good work!

I have worked as a sub and a parent volunteer. Overall, I have to say that most of the teachers are wonderful and truly care about the students. The new principal this year has proven to be a valuable asset to the school and was very eager and quick to handle issues that I had. The assistant principal, I have to give the most credit too, has always been there for anything! Oliver is a good school, I know, I've had 3 children there!

All of my children attended Oliver my youngest child is the last one there now he is currently in the 6th grade. I really enjoyed my children attending Oliver until this year. The partion like rooms they have set up are not good enough. More thought should of went into moving 6th grade back this year. More class rooms need to be built. Overall all of the teachers are wonderful. They have a new principal this year and I haven't gotten to know her yet. For those of you who read this and want to know the overall ethnic ratio I would say the school is mostly caucasian. However allstudents are treated the same!

I found out today that next school year (2005 06) Oliver Elementary will no longer offer the after school program and for that reason it looks as if I will be moving my child to another school system. I regret that it has come to this but evidently the superintendent does not think the students at Oliver Elem. are worth the cost of keeping the after school program at Oliver Elementary. The Program will be offered to Ladonia Elementary students only. Cutting the after school program out at Oliver will force parents that have relied on the program to seek substandard child care and possibly force some parents that can t afford to move their children to another school, to have their children come home alone. That would be dangerous! The teachers that have been working in the program at Oliver Elem. are caring and very qualified. Education at Oliver.

I have been actively involved with Oliver for 5 years now, serving as PTA President for 2 of those years. Oliver has a great faculty that strives to give the children the best education possible. I am, however, disappointed in the parental involvement at Oliver. It is almost non-exsistant, and although the principal is willing to allow various extracurricular activities for the children the parents are not there to support the programs. Over all Oliver is a good school for the community in which it serves. The grade averages are comparable to larger, better funded facilities. I will soon have another child and grand child attending Oliver and I am confident that the education they receive there will be comparable, purhaps surpass other schools of it economic capabilities.

Oliver is a good quality school, they try to achieve above average standards. The whole staff is wonderful and is able to work within and above the limitations that the state has given them. I currently have 3 children in this school and I trust and respect the entire staff with my children.
