The best place I could possibly imagine for my kids! No place is perfect, but OES sure comes close!
This will be our last year to attend Olsen Elementary. Both of my children have been treated as though they are "troubled", for doing things NORMAL children do, such as occasionally push, say "No", and getting out of line. I am sick of the treatment as though they are hooligans, and believe it is because we are not WHITE. - There is NO homework going home, at all, and they seemed to have lost what they have gained last year.
Olsen Elementary is a great school. The teachers are dedicated and professional. They go above and beyond with all of their students regardless of their economic situations. I happily send my children to school each day knowing that they will be challenged and nutured by the staff at Olsen. I can't think of a better school in South Texas. For the family living in Round Top-Carmine. Sounds like that district is a better fit for you and your family. You should spend your time writing about them and less time putting false information up about Port Aransas. I think you for got to read to read the School Review and Guidelins because clearly you violated many of them.
Olsen Elementary is an outstanding school in all respects. The defamatory statement and negative review submitted by the former Olsen ES parent ("Olsen cheats to achieve good TAKS scores.") clearly parallels their negative attitude and behavior while they were in the Port Aransas school community. Obviously, nothing has changed. It is also disappointing that greatschools.com permits libelous statements such as this to be posted without verifying with school authorities if formal charges have been filed in this regard.
