    Olmsted is a great school. The teachers are wonderful and considerate. The Olmsted garden is a wonderful part of the school. The field trip to SpringBrooke is a great experience for my child. Its is by far the best Elementary school in the district. ----- HILLARY WHITE

    I have Raised 3 kids and all have attended Urbandale school district and olmsted Elem. Olm school has been a great motivator for my kids. It has gotten them off on a get start starting with Kindergarden. Olm staff is great. Patient with all students willing to help those who struggle giving that extra hand. The principal is active with all aspects of the school and district and is always there to give the kids his smiles in the am before schools starts. He is a positive role model and strives for each child to be and do theyre very best. Thank you urbandale schools Olm elmentary for being that second home to my kids.
