Our Olinda families and staff share a common vision to create a community of life-long learners who possess strong character traits of respect and responsibility. The staff is committed to treating students with dignity and creating an environment that provides maximum opportunities for learning. Our goal is to provide students with a strong educational foundation so they leave Olinda Elementary with educational experiences that have prepared them academically, and instilled the problem solving and critical thinking skills necessary to become successful and responsible members of society. We provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum that addresses the Common Core State Standards. We believe every child can achieve academic success, and our staff is dedicated to providing every student with quality instructional experiences which recognizes, supports, and maintains high student expectations.
 
Our staff models the belief that learning is a life-long journey and we recognize that to empower our students and prepare them for the demands of the future, we also need to empower ourselves and we do so with a strategic framework for research-based instructional strategies and analysis of student achievement. Technology is used to increase and enhance student and teacher access to information, their ability to use data, their productivity and their creativity.
