From the Principal’s Desk

Welcome to Olive Public School and thank you for visiting our school online. I am delighted you have found your way to this page and hope that as you explore you will develop a sense of dynamic, creative, and caring place Olive Public School (OPS) is, and that you will come and visit us in person soon.


Ours is a spirited, happy, and hard-working learning community where experiential and disciplined inquiry is an integral part of every student's experience. OPS is committed to a strong academic program that engages students cognitively, physically, and creatively in meaningful learning experiences, while also engaging their emotions as they learn about themselves, their individual learning styles, and how to relate to others. Our students are empowered to make choices, to work hard to overcome challenges, and to engage deeply and meaningfully in a curriculum centered classrooms.


Our mission is founded on the idea that mutual respect should inform our relationships, and that students are empowered by making decisions and exercising developmentally appropriate degrees of responsibility for their own learning and self-direction.


At OPS the students are confident and compassionate, with an ability to advocate and lead. Such skills emerge from being able to think critically, to solve problems and to work both independently and collaboratively in a multi-age environment. At OPS, we not only prepare students with skills and knowledge, but also intentionally encourage stewards of our world, who can live happy, fulfilling lives. Our students learn about the complexity of a world where our interdependencies demand sensitivity to culture.


Our school-home partnership helps children build a strong understanding of themselves as learners. This partnership also helps instill in students a sense of responsibility to themselves and to their community. Our aim is that children leaving The Olive Public School see and value both the common threads which connect us to others and the breadth of differences in our larger world.


Student learning occurs all over the campus and throughout the city and world. We foster a commitment to service with projects on campus, as well as local and global organizations. We expect our students to acquire the advocacy skills that contribute to a more peaceful world, respecting diversity and the environment. Please look at our mission and philosophy and most important, come share time with us.
