    This school is horrible. There is not enough space to write all the things that are bad (only 150 characters). This is my childs 1st yr here and I am looking at other schools to transfer her to. The last straw was the teacher saying they dont have to do homework -- its assigned but the teachers have been told not to "punish" the kids for their homework -- staying in for recess or grading it. Wish I could list all that is wrong DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE!!!

    If you look at the statistics for this school you will see that 76% of the teachers have a Masters Degree-a higher percentage than any other elementary school in Federal Way. The teachers at this school work tirelessly to help students coming from poverty as well as those who start kindergarten with no English skills at all. When families struggled with Christmas this year a nearby church helped 250 families. That left 48 kids without Christmas food and gifts...until the staff some of whom are going through their own financial struggles decided to provide Christmas for those other 48 kids. Because their is so little parent involvement the teachers do all the extra things for the school such as reading night math night music concerts book fair carnival. They do this because they are dedicated teachers who work hard for their students in an effort to bridge the gap.

    Although the teachers my kids have this year are wonderful and supportive. There are a handful of them who I think aren't doing enough for the kids. I know there isn't alot of parent support/ volunteers but the improvement needs to be addressed inside the school. The teachers my kids have this year are the type of teachers that need to be at the school to make it grow. Encourage the kids that's what it is all about. I believe that this school is a good school for my kids now. The programs to help children with homework and tutoring are great and glad to have them.

    This school does great for the support it gets. There is minimal parent support the school seems to be 'poor' financially and it seems skills of the teachers are not up to par with the other FW schools.

    Olympic View has a wonderful welcoming attitude from the principal on through every member of its teaching and support staff. Diversity is welcomed and celebrated and every student gets an opportunity to shine.
