Oppe is an exciting school, full of colors and sounds and kids. We love Oppe because it has a great focus on academics, while still allowing kids PE (I have recently heard many parents complain that PE is no longer offered at their kids' schools) and other non-academic pursuits during the day. Mrs Aucoin, the principal, is always involved in activities and has always been available to me when. I've had questions. The teachers are energetic and excited to teach our kids. We are grateful for Oppe!

I have a child in Kindergarten at Oppe. We researched and toured all of the elementary schools in Galveston, including private, charter, and public and feel very confident that we made the right choice with Oppe Elementary. My son's teacher is wonderful - caring, structured, creative and good about communicating with parents. The Principal, coaches, and teachers know most of the kids' names and greet them all warmly in the halls. I would strongly recommend Oppe Elementary.

I have a daughter that is currently in kindergarten at Oppe. Her teacher is absolutely amazing. She is very attentive to the kids and even gets involved with the special events they have and plays right along side the kids. My daughter comes home every day excited about some new thing that she learned! The parent involvement is good and I see several parents there for every party, field trip, or other event. I toured two other schools in Galveston and looked into several more. I am extremely happy with our decision to choose Oppe!

I have a student in kindergarten and she loves Oppe. She has learned so much and made many nice friends. I have taught in 5 elementary schools and have been impressed with what I have seen at Oppe. There is a nice balance of learning while also enjoying school. I helped with Halloween activities and was so impressed walking down the hall to see all the princesses and spidermen hard at work and still learning as they enjoyed wearing their costumes. We have really enjoyed all the extra programs and activities such as Ocean Discovery Night, field trips, running club, library nights, PTO programs, Winter Dinner, visiting authors and we can't wait for the spring carnival! You can tell the staff at Oppe have high expectations for their students and really enjoy what they do!

I have a 12 year old that went to Oppe K through 4th and another child that is currently in 3rd grade there. I believe they have received an excellent education in a positive environment. Oppe holds a high standard for their teachers as well as their students. It shows in their test scores. This is one of two schools I would have my children attend as a Galveston resident; the other Elementary being Parker. The great thing about Galveston schools in general is the diversity. I'm so glad my child has learned how to accept all types of people and different cultures. This is something that you don't get in the typical suburban schools.

We have 3 kids attending Oppe. They currently are in 5th, 4th and 1st grades. We have really enjoyed this school overall. This is a school that encourages parent/teacher interaction and parent participation at all grade levels. Our kids love their teachers and they are wonderful with only a few that fell slightly below 'wonderful'. The PTO at Oppe is also one of the best in the city and use their money to benefit the kids so that they can experience many fun activities outside of the school building. They are even building an outdoor garden and science centre that I'm sure all of the kids will love. We highly recommend this school. Go Oppe Dolphins!

My son is in first grade this year. He had a great kindergarten year at Oppe. Now his first grade is going even better. He loves his teacher and the school work. The teachers are positive and upbeat. The discipline style is more about rewarding good behavior and the consequences for not following the rules are fair. There is tremendous parent involvement. The school and PTO meetings are held in the gym and there is usually standing room only before the meeting starts. The school hosts the cub scout, boy scout program. I am not sure about the sports, but he already has a notebook full of freehand drawings and he is always singing new songs-on the potty and in the bath.

I was very pleased with the teachers in PreK. The PTA provides many field trip opportunities for all grade levels. My son learned a lot in one year, he can write his name and is beginning to read.

My nieces have gone to this school with no complaints from their parents. It appears to be a school with a good cultural mixture, good learning atmosphere, and good teachers. I would send my child to this school.
