    "Excellent school! The teachers care, and our kids have learned a lot. My ONLY problem is that there is too much homework. My older child often doesn't have time for anything else after school. I still gave 5 stars because I think all California schools might be like this (my nephews have same issue in LA). Otherwise great school. Organized, nice facilities, and fantastic programs."

    "We love OPE. Our daughter is happy and learning a lot. The teachers have been wonderful and the principal is focused on many important issues that affect our children and schools. We moved to Encinitas for the schools and we have been more than pleased."

    "Excellent school overall- except for the new principal. A lot of homework, we do not have time to get it all done and go to outside sports. My kids are up until late at night finishing work after sports. Good teachers for the most part, however, we are NOT impressed with the new principal, she is very political and caters only to certain parents. Classes are not mixed in a balanced way- we see this year after year there. They would do so much better drawing names out of a hat than the unfair way they place students currently."

    "Our kids have recently started their second year at O.P.E. and we are very happy to be at this school. The faculty collaborates with parents to try to resolve your special requests or concerns. The teachers we have had are all above par, and love teaching. It shows in the dedication to their students and their relationships with the children. The Principal is new, and she has proved herself over the past year. Olivenhain Pioneer enjoys very strong community support and a high degree of parent involvement, which creates a strong sense of community for our children. All the families we have met are open and welcoming."

    "This school has many positive aspects however much has been overrated. The test scores have much to do with the parent support children get at home both directly from the parent and often through tutors that they hire. The homework load is beyond what is necessary leaving little time for recreational activities. OPE had a great principal over the last few years unfortunately left over the summer. While there are some good teachers many make the absolute minimum effort. A strong emphasis on kids being organized seems to take precedence over reasoning and knowledge. The school as a whole enjoys strong parental support and parents. Parents are asked to contribute far more money than other Encinitas schools. It is a shame that given that there is little evidence to suggest that the content and methodologies employed within the classroom in anyway match up to this."
