I truly feel like the school atmosphere maximizes learning potential, with well organized activities and subjects for every day of the week. I believe that they approach does not just teach academics, but helps them use the acquired knowledge to think critically, which I believe that completely prepares the child for next steps in life.
Feedback are positive and my children feel supported in all academic areas. I am able to talk to my children teacher at any given time. We work together to improve my son's academics and he is now getting high grades. Children take home a homework agenda that parents can check up on the work that is completed or not completed. Each child at different level learn in a fun playful way how to do math and other subject. They do major projects which are displaced inside the school. Parents and students are able to see them. Olivet School meet the Ministry of Education academic requirements. I feel that my children read more because at Olivet they feel safe, comfortable and are encouraged. They have comfortable areas in the class room and are surrounded by books. Time is set aside each day for quiet reading time. Olivet have an incentive monthly reading program which my children enjoy. They go to the creek and learn about nature and participate in different environmental activities. My children are learning positive life skills along with the great morals that they are taught at Olivet. I am reassured that they will be prepared for life's next journey.
When my daughter graduated from Olivet, she was a positive child, confident on her studies, and well prepared for the next stage of her life. My daughter started grade seven in public school and most of the material that was being taught was covered at Olivet so she was ahead of the grade.
