I am a parent of a student at OES. Our kid studied 2nd grade in Oliveria Fremont. I interacted with our kid's teacher, admin staff and principal (Mr. Ian Squibb) frequently (by volunteering in school activities and attending DELAC meeting on behalf of OES) and they are wonderful people. Principal leads the kids by example. I had personally seen how he cares for students during school times and was happy with his caring attitude. We miss OES school and the staff.
My child joined last kindergarten after spending sometime at Forest Park. What a world of difference in attitudes of staff and teachers. I was upset at the rude manner the forest park office staff spoke to the parentsAt Oliveira, from the get go the office staff is friendly, polite and concerned for the kids.The Principal is always around and has an open door policy and always stops to say hello to the kids and parents. He doesn't hesitate discussing a concern wherever you stand. If there is a followup he asks to come to his office.The teachers range from years of experience to new grads being mentored. They plan their course material and do send homework as per the age of the child. They offer extra help to some kids who need it for reading and math.The balance of study and physical ed ensures the kids get out often enough. There are monthly kid events thats fun.I like Oliveira and would recommend it.
My son has been going to school since Kindergarten. It's a great school with great teachers! Yesterday I wasn't too fond of the office staff on how she treated me as a parent. Time of the year to turn in Reservation Form for school year 2015-2016. I came in without anything to verify residency because we are planning to move next month. Still, I had to show proof or residency (uh didn't I show proof last year?) When she asked where we were moving to, she said "oh that's probably a good thing." Did that mean she no longer wanted us to be in that school? It's not like my son is a bad student at all. He's a good kid and we've been very good with the school donations and activities. I just don't get where that attitude comes from. It's a school, you deal with kids- be happy!
So far I feel like we have been blessed. My daughter who is in special ed and is high functioning Autistic, has never done so well in a school. She was in the Hayward school district K-3 and every year a struggle. She loves her teacher Cynthia Foulkes and her classmates. Her behavior has improved greatly. So glad we Now are in this school and district.
