This school needs alot of improvement. We are a military family and my kids have been to a school in TN and KY. Compare to the schools they have attented, Mt. Olive is by far inferior. They had to cancel the open house and was re- scheduled after school had started. Many parents who were waiting in line on the first day of school complained about the cancellation. Another complaint is that my children's old school called me because nobody had requested their official form from Mt. Olive and it has already been a week since school started. This form was needed to verify if he was in the Gifted and Talented program. It's already December and one of my son is till not going to the Gifted and Talented class. Their reasoning is that they haven't scored them yet. Another complaint is that my kids said that everyone in class is loud all the time. They are not used to this. The teachers in other states kept them quite so they can learn. Here I don't think they care. At least the majority. Also, my son said only about 10 kids received honor rolls in his grade compare to more than 50% of the students in the other 2 states. That would be about 50 students. All i can say is that Mt Olive needs alot of improvement.
