Mount Olive Primary is an excellent school. The climate and culture when you enter the building is very welcoming. I have volunteered there multiple times, and I have never had a negative experience. Mr. Saulsberry is a great leader, and he cares about his students and school family. The faculty is friendly and the teachers that my son had the past two years were helpful and approachable.
Speaking with the News and State regarding misappropriated funding for Title 1. School is now seeking funding for a new preschool class when they admit to a shortage of qualified teachers. Classes to have substitute teachers for remainder of year.
