    This is my sons first year at oliver and i can say this is a pretty good school when it come to his teacher she is great keeps my well informed on how my sons is doing he loves her. The principal is at great leader for this school she is a sweetheart. One thing i do have to say is when it comes to the safety of our children this is a big concern some of the staff.

    In my opinion oliver is a great school to go to. Of course with exceptions of some teachers and the office staff. Oliver is a very united school and is capable of doing many things. People in there say that 'we are a family' and that is true. Some of Oliver's teachers send out a very good attitude that students should look up to. In this school they have all kinds of activities to be involved in and no one can say that this school does not give opportunities because it does. I'm not a big fan of going to school but once I get there I can say that I don't really mind because I know I have teachers and friends who care for everyone inclusing myself!

    My daughters and I have just moved and they had to go to another school but I was reading the comment made by another parent and I strongly disagree my daughter was also in special ed and I had not one problem with her at all and she was in many different activities such as best friends and chorus. I do agree many of the parents don't seem to be involved like they should be but that is not the schools fault only the fault of the parents themselves. The office staff was always very helpful as well as Mrs. Golden and Mrs. Reimer. and all the teachers as well will be missed greatly by my daughters and me.

    My child is in Special Education Class at this school. My daughter begged me the entire year to take her out of the school. My daughter only went on 1 trip. Had no concert plays or involvement in any school activities. The attitute of most of the staff is very negative towards the special education students. This negative attitude has rubbed off on to the students and they were treated like outcast the entire year. They should have a bit more consideration towards these children's emotional well-being. I believe this school needs to be educated starting with the office staff every teacher and all the students. It was a great dissapointment to see my child become a child that did not enjoy going to school. This entire comment is for the entire school with the exclusions of Mr. Whittaker and Mrs. Maged who are the only teachers aware and capable to handle these children. They also gave my daughter hope and assurance that not the whole world is like that.
