    the school environment is very good and the teacher themselves were very nice i rate this school one of the best elementary in fremont

    Over all school is good....I am disappointed that this year that the teacher my child has is not bothering to reply to emails. At Open House parents were told that there would be responses to email anc concerns...Well so far it has been three days and no response. Other teachers my children have had there has always been quick response with in few hours. This year really disappointing. Hope things get better as year progresses.

    Oliveira is a very great school. My child has been attending since Kindergarten and is now in 3rd grade and we have found it to be a welcoming school. My child is always excited to be at school. The staff and the principal are very welcoming. The PTA is just as welcoming. If you are looking for a great school where they welcome and encourage parents to volunteer you've found it...

    I am quite impressed with how this school works and educated. There is a strong community amongst the parents and the teachers are very passionate. I feel very fortunate to have my child go there...now in her 4th year as a 3rd grader. In fact I am so impressed I have decided to become the PTA President. They earned every bit of the Distinguished School award they achieved.

    This really is a great school. I have been at this school for 3 years with 2 children. They have all promoted respect for each other and finding the strengths in each child. The Principal is newer to the role but works extremely hard. She is very dedicated and is an inspirational leader rather than an autocratic one as I have previously experienced in other schools. This translates into genuine team feelings between parents teachers staff and students. I love the school community and feeling of appreciation and belonging. Teachers work very hard genuinely care about students and have always made time to meet with us when we have had issues. My children are thriving here directly due to teacher and principal engagement with us. The school/PTA holds many family activities and the Principal knows each child and thinks about them as individual learners. Many parents walk with their children to class in the morning and there are yard-duty supervisors before school allowing children to play and parents to interact in the morning. Oliveira is a very welcoming school and I am grateful to be a part of the community.

    Oliveira is awesome!! I graduated from that school last year it helped me with leadership skills and academics. You could do many things at Oliveira that will help you obtain nice skills in all areas of academics. If your doubting Oliveira trust me you will be surprised how good we are ;D !!

    The earlier principal was more capable dynamic woman. than the current one. Teachers are great.However my son never got one corrected homework or class activity back. I would need to correct it for him later in the day. Learning comes from correcting and reinforcement through activities and testing. Nevertheless this school provides a safe and a disciplined environment for learning.

    Is one school had constantly is making a great progress. The principal office staff and teachers are simply the best.

    My concerns grow for Oliveira. They have a difficulty getting to speed on communication with the family. Their web-site is non existent. Emailing the teacher takes a few days for response. If you cc the principal - your email is ignored. She has never replied to my emails so I wonder if she uses a computer. My daughter was hurt at school (twice now). Neither time has a yard duty person come to her aide. The last time she was hurt I picked her up at school and took her to the ER -- per her doctor's instructions. No one called to see how she was. Unfortunate because I even let them know we were headed there. Hurtful because the yard duty person did not take the time to bring her to the office nor does the office take the time to call and see how this child was doing.

    Our family has a couple of generations that have attended Oliveira. All have done well and all have come out ready for the next level of education.

    The principal teachers staff and parents all work together to create a positive learning and nurturing environment for the students. My children have thrived at Oliveira. I couldn't be more pleased with the education and support they receive there.
