School Reviews

Stephen Olney School is a wonderful family oriented school. Its number one priority is always the students. The school atmosphere is wonderful and the principal, r. Corsini is very involved. He is always available and willing to help. The teachers are also wonderful and committed to the children. Parent involvement is always evident and is welcomed by the administration. The school has excellent academic programs and is very involved with teaching children to read in the early grades. This is the school's top priority. The school recognizes student achievement both academically and athletically. The facilities are in need of repair as it is an old building. I rtecommend this school very highly!
