As parent, who just recently moved and had her daughter start making friends again from zero, its very pleasant to hear the other kids calling my daughter's name when she arrives at school. Not just the kids her age, but some of the older kids know her and play with her. Most of the kids play well with the others, regardless of age difference, in a respectful manner.
The student body is small. My Children are very comfortable with each other. Every one are really great friends. The teachers, parents and students have great personal relationships. The students are extremely polite and manner able. The spirit of the students are fun loving and happy. They are growing up with values and respect for each other. The dynamic between students are great. They don't feel left out when playing. They don't have to compete for others attention. They don't feel bullied or threatened. They attend each others birthday parties. They enjoy being at school with each other.
The student body at Olivet is small but it provided the perfect setting for my daughter. There was a feeling of togetherness and a caring family atmosphere. What stood out to me was the way the students took care of each other; watching the older children look out for the younger ones and vice versa, the way the students didn't just play with their own age group but made sure no one was left out. It created a loving environment carried out by all.
