Very Poor. My child is special needs, and we had to fight and fight, just to get that recognized. I couldn't possibly state everything here we had gone through with this school. What a nightmare. All the teacher's, staff, etc are 'in bed together'. You have to fight so hard just for your child to get treated fairly. They say they want the parent involved, but when the parent steps in, they don't like it and accuse you of being a helicopter parent. My child has suffered emotionally because of how the adults acted. It's shocking and unbelieveable. They want the money, but don't want to give what the child needs. I have a retired teacher that lives around the corner from me, and she said get your child somewhere other then the Olean school district! Don't even ask me what I and many others think of the Principal and Superintendent, what a joke!

Recently, this school went from 6th-8th grade to 4th to 7th grade. It should have remained the 6th-8th grade, because my 4th grader is failing and the school doesn't care anymore. If you last name isn't a "rich" name, then you get "bullied" all the time. I am seriously thinking about moving to another state where teachers care about their students.

The teachers, administrators and staff members at the Olean Middle School are all very caring people. Some will complain based on personal experience, but you can't take away from the efforts of all the people mentioned above.
