Principal's Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Olinda Elementary School and the 2021-2022 school year. 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 and believe every child can achieve academic success. 
Olinda Elementary School is a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, California Distinguished School, and has been recognized by the California PBIS Coalition for the care we have provided to students. We are dedicated to ensuring the academic success of every student by providing them with a comprehensive educational experience within a safe environment that sets high expectations. Our school mission statement is "Home of the Eagles - Where students are challenged to soar toward personal excellence."
We are proud to serve the students in Brea and invite you to visit our Instagram page @olindaelementary to see how we make each day special for our students.
Thank you,
