My niece and nephew attend Olmito Elementary School and it is a great school. The teachers are extremely well prepared and execute their tasks wonderfully. I have witnessed the homework assignments the children take home and it is impressive of how they DON'T teach the children to MEMORIZE, but actually learn. You don't see this in many schools. The Principal and Vice Principal actually call the children by their names. They definitely know their teachers and students. This school is beyond amazing. From the time the children arrive to the school to pick up time, the entire staff is very organized and keep things in order. I want my children to attend this school. It is remarkable and it challenges the children academically in the most efficient and effective manner.

Olmito School is an outstanding school. It is a high performing school and is one of the top schools in the state. This is is no coincidence! My children have been attending since Pre-K and are now in 2nd and 4th grade. The curriculum offered is first-rate. The dedication of the staff and students is what makes it excellent. Don't be surprised to hear the principal, coach or even the librarian call your child by their first name. I appreciate the daily effort Olmito School makes to challenge the parents to get involved. We check and sign their homework assignments daily. The care of our children provided before and after school and during school breaks is reassuring. The staff has done a great job of communicating with me through phone calls, emails, meetings, etc. My children are both seeing a dietician and it helps to see that the cafeteria provides an excellent variety of healthy foods. The school's dress policy code is great and helps to support unity and school spirit. The kids are happy, energetic, and well-mannered. My husband and I have no problems waking the kids to go to school in the mornings. They love going to Olmito Elementary. Submitted by Mrs. Palafox a parent

I like the way teachers interact with the kids and parents. Teachers and staff know how to motivate children when it comes to it. This school has good scores on their Taks scores, that shows you how motivated these kids are.

Our children were enrolled in a magnet school in Fl. boy were we surprise to the quality of Olmito Ele. The Principal's participation and commitment to his students. the school's staff always ready to assist you with any need. The school also has great activities for their students. The school was all the time seeking ways to better their students,if they needed tutoring they were after the parents to let their children take advantage of it. The Principal and Teachers would commit them self to personally hand to the first report cards. They would make the extra effort of take reportcards to the parents home of those that did not show up at openhouse. Overall It's A Great School!
