    "Olive has been through many leadership changes in the last 10 years, however the staff and families have remained committed and enthusiastic about doing what is best for kids. The present leader is continuing this energy. There are changes, however the leadership vision is what is best for kids. Change is hard, but it is okay too. The Olive Community is genuine, full of heart, and passionate about educating kids."

    "We have loved this school for our 3 kids for years. This year has changed all of that. We have a new principal, she has made Olive elementary a miserable place. My son who was always a happy boy at school is no longer allowed with his friends at lunch. Several parents, myself included, have brought this up with our new principal. She is unwilling to see any perspective but her own and seems to genuinely not care what the parents or children at her school. I am very bothered by the changes I have seen at his school this year and am warned by the staff that there is more to come. I am thankful that this is our last year at Olive. I know many parents who are upset at this choice for principal. I would give the teachers five stars, but the new principal doesn't deservr the minimum of one."

    "I have one daughter at Olive and one who is now in middle school who went to Olive. I have been a parent for 7 years at the school. I feel the teachers listen to me, and work hard to help my girls the best students that they can be. Also, they listened when my girls have had problems and tried to find solutions."

    "Olive Elementary is a special school full of wonderful kids, dedicated teachers and staff, and energetic generous parents. Both my kids have been challenged there and I only wish it would become a K-8!"
