    "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."

    "This is a great school. When I brought my 5 year old daughter to kinder class last August 2009, she knows nothing, one reason is because she didn't attend a pre-school. As of this time (Jan, 2010), she could read, write sentences, count up to 120, count backwards, count by 10's and she could do her Math (addition) without any help. Congrats to Mrs. Lau. Thank you. What you have done to my daughter is amazing. Thank you very muc."

    "We have been at Olinda for 4 years. Overall we are very pleased with the school - especially given the district it is in. The student population is very diverse - both in ethnicity and social economic status. The parents are involved, bringing many programs (in and after class) to campus over the last 3 years. There were science, art, music, & international languages; arranged by parent volunteers and partially subsidized by donations. We had 3 principals in 3 years, but now there's finally stability. If we could just get the District to recognize and value how Olinda helps to provide quality education to all, we would be doing better as a district."
