I don't undertand how communication is not delivered on a timely manner!! The speech contest is this week and according the paper it was suppose to take place on Jan 31 @ 9am not Jan 30. I cannot believe a principle would do this to families. I'd like to add there could be more healthy lunch options and give bigger portions!! My kids are starving with they get home. And they menu they have for the week means that, that is what they'll be servicing that day. So many times i was going to pack lunches but kids were disappointed that they didn't serve what was on the calendar menu!! What's up with that???

This is an excellent school, the principal is very involved and my son's teacher Ms. Aste from 1st grade is amazing. We love her, she creates a great environment for the kids and I really enjoy her way of teaching. I recommend this school 100%. The only thing that I would like to see is music class, spanish class and other programs like gifted or immersion. Other than that, it's a great school.

I loved attending this school. It was amazing. I have nothing negative to say, the envioroment the people (teachers, principles, and other students) make is so welcoming. It was a great school for me to grow up in and it has made me the person I am today, which is saying a lot, because I am a good straight A's student now in my Junior year at Eastlake High School.

I have not seen anything special out of this school. They are doing what they are being paid to do. I would like to see less filler acftivities and more hard core educational programs.

Of the 44 schools in the Chula Vista Elementary School District, Olympic View continues to show strong achievement rates in spite of changing demographics and a growing student population. The structures in place to support student discipline, instructional programs and parent involvement contribute to the positive atmosphere in place that is supportive and responsive to all student's needs. The school administrators are visible and involved on all levels. Behavior expecations are clear and concise. Teachers work together to deliver precise teaching that supports learning and high achievement rates. Maintaining a positive culture at the school is the responsibility of the entire school community. The right components are in place at Olympic View and I am confident that this school will continue to be a top performing school because of the committment by the community and the awesome staff that is completely focused on teaching and learning.

I agree with the last writer. My children have been at Olympic View since 2000, and although we hhave had a few principals leave, the school is a great school. Unfortunately there are too many parents who are eager to critize but unwilling to lend a helping hand. If these parents would spend a little more time at school, and were more involved in their children's education they would see that Olympic View is doing a great job. My son entered middle school well prepared and eager to show this worrying parent what he can do. I credit his success (straight 'A's') to the sixth grade rotating schedule and the strick atmosphere at Olympic View. This school is built on the belief that it takes a village to raise a child, and if the complainers are unwilling to be part of the village it is their loss.

My Kids have been attending Olympic View since my first was in Kinder. She has since moved on and because of the 6th grade program she has adjusted great to life at Middle School. I have seen several principals and heard many comments and I believe that Mrs Amador has stepped up and considering how and when she needed to take over she has done the best she can. We are in a community that many people would rather complain about a situation rather than step up and try to help. If Olympic View is as bad as some of the comments below then offer your services in the classroom, OPTC, the playground or even the office, any would love your help. I still believe Olympic View is a wonderful school and my kids have been very happy and succesful there.

i left this school about a year ago before entering sixth grade, because my parents were totally shocked by how bad the environment was there. the kids in fifth and sixth grade are badly disciplined, and it really shows. Despite the teachers and current principal s efforts, not much has been done to change the students behavior. the principal, Mrs. amador, has, in my opinion, done a very poor job at maintaining the school and its reputaion. She is highly disliked by the students especially those in fifth and sixth.

I am worried about 5th and 6th Grade. Something is not working and you can't blame kids not wanting to try hard. Wakeup and please see that something needs to be changed. The scores just keep getting worse every year. Thank Goodness we are going into 4th 08-09 not 5th grade. Teachers speakup and tell the powers that be and parents what needs to be changed. Plain and simple whatever you have been doing the past 2 school years doesn't work.

My kids have been here since kindergarten. A lot of great teachers, but the school has been going down hill since Mr. Glover left. The current atmosphere under Mrs. Amador is more like a boarding school. More about the rules, kids are not even allowed to run at recess. Teachers are not happy either, some have left and others are just waiting for the principal to change. Hopefully the District will wake up and make some needed changes to return it to the top elementary in the area.

Surprise ending to 7 years of education at Olympic View. Chula Vista Elementary School curriculem was severely deficient in instruction and skills. The 5th and 6th grade instruction at Olympic View were very disappointing. Star test results qualified our disappointment.

I am very impressed with this school. Lots of parent volunteers can be seen always helping. The availability of the music class and extra activities at school is great! my son was in piano last school year and is looking forward to it this year. Teachers are absolutely great here also and wanting to help in all aspects of our children's progress. The amount of knowledge in all areas of studies that my son has learned already is so impressive, I trust he is receiving the utmost in education here at the school.

I am very pleased with the academic programs at OlympicView. I am a parent of two children there, with my oldest attending there for the past five years. They have a very strong and challenging academic program. My children are taught very early on, to take individual responsibilty in their learning. The level of parental involvement is amazing. Teachers encourage parents to volunteer their services, and it clearly makes a difference in the amount of learning that occurs because the teachers and parents work together to achieve successful learning. I am a credentialed teacher, as well as a parent, and I have seen many differences between different schools. The children at OlympicView love being there with their dedicated teachers. The principal is both friendly and invovled, and is very accessible to both the teachers and the parents.

This is the higherst rated school in the Chula Vista Elementary District. Very experienced teachers, safe environment, music program, etc. make this a wonderful school.

Over all Olympicview has my vote for best elementary school. Unfortunately for my children, they will be attending a new school, due to the zone district. The teachers my daughter had were all wonderful, especially Mrs. Cunningham. Her teaching skills are great. My child loves school now. Mrs Cunningham really brought out the best in my daughter. The difference she made with my child is priceless. I am very, very thankful. Mr Glover is a great princal. He really looks out for the well being of these kids. He remembers most of the childrens names, as well as the parents. That really impressed my husband and I. His dedication and efforts, makes us proud that my child attended Olympicview elementary. Funds donated to the school was well worth it, we were happy to help.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
