School Reviews

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.
