This school is an excellent place to form our kids
My son has been attending Oliver St for the past 2 years and although I'm satisfied, I'm not overly impressed. My son has been lucky enough to have attentive and caring teachers who listen to what I'm saying and work with me to make sure my son is getting a good education. When my son started at Oliver St in the 1st grade, he was ahead of his class. He was excelling in math and reading but wasn't being challenged by the curriculum. I brought this issue to the attention of his teacher and the principal and they worked with me to develop a plan to help him move forward. He was taken from his first grade class and put into a class with second graders for reading and math. He is now finishing up his 2nd grade year with another thoughtful, caring, and attentive teacher. She has gone above the call of duty by keeping me informed of his progress/challenges. She noticed that my son is an avid reader and has encouraged his love of reading by supplying him with books that entice and challenge him. My only issue with the class this year is the homework or lack thereof. The homework he receives is unchallenging and rarely a necessary reinforcement of a newly learned lesson.
