The vision of Olney Elementary School is to create life-long learners and career ready citizens that celebrate diversity, model integrity, and exemplify excellence in everything they do.
It is the mission of our school to provide an active learning environment where each student is valued and challenged to meet his or her individual potential. Our learning community constantly strives to provide appropriate supports, challenges, consequences, and rewards. We endeavor to prepare our students to think independently, work cooperatively, and view obstacles as challenges to be met.
