“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also
believe.” ~ Anatole France
Olive Street Elementary School members share the belief that all students can learn. We believe that all students have the potential to become ethical and democratic citizens who are optimistic about the future. We see that maximizing the potential of each child as our responsibility and charge during their academic years at Olive Street Elementary School.
The teachers at Olive Street Elementary School are educators who value and understand the importance of working with young minds. As a professional learning community, we strive for continued improvement of the academic program. Teachers are continuously engaged in collaborative research, problem-solving, and reflective dialogue that enables them to examine their practices with the ultimate goal of improving student achievement. Olive Street Elementary School continually strives to create a college-bound academic culture where students play a major role in their own learning and education.
We have emphasized the achievement of every student in every classroom. This approach makes sure that poor performance is not acceptable and each and every adult is accountable to the students that sit in front of them every day. By placing relentless focus on individual performance, we have implemented a vital cycle of instruction, assessment, and intervention, followed by more instruction, assessment, and intervention. We believe in all of our students and will do whatever it takes to make them successful. The students have developed an attitude of “I can and I will” when it comes to their academic success.
