    "Olinda Elementary is a gem in the school district. Thanks to the City of Richmond who had the foresight and commitment to keep such a great institution open, Olinda is around to be recognized as a Ca. Distinguished school this year (and I bet for many years to come). My daughter has had many amazing teachers - not all the time, but enough to make a difference. The new principal seems very experienced and focused, and I'm excited to see how well the school would do under her leadership."

    "School needs to post not only positive but negative reviews. Someone is deleting all negative reviews. This school needs to get its act together and stop making itself look perfect. It isd nowhere near that. There are many schools in this district that quietly do what they are supposed to do...and they do it legally...STOP deleting negative reviews. That certainly tells parents something about your lack of honesty and other essential values teachers should have. Shame on you."

    "I am responding to the post on 11-19 about dysfunctionality. We've had principals leave because the state budget cut threatened their job, retired, took a lesser commute job with another district. We probably missed out on principals wanting to keep a career join us because of the closure threat a few years ago. This turnover does allow potential handpicking by teachers to fall through the cracks due to transition, but I doubt this is exclusive to Olinda. The district could do a better job managing principal transitions to make sure this doesn't happen. Despite constant changing of principals, and the parent's claim of ethnic profiling, Olinda stayed within the top 5 schools in our district, never dropped below 827 in API and are 1 of 2 final candidates for CA distinguished school award in our district this year. To qualify, a school has to meet overall API, and also sub-group growth. And ethnic is a sub-group. So not only should you think twice but maybe ask three times before you dismiss a potentially good education for your child by not choosing Olinda."
