Olive School Earns an A




Olive School students and staff are happy about some Grade “A” news that they have received.  The Indiana Department of Education has released school scores based upon their new grading A-F Accountability System.  The grade reflects Olive School’s most recent academic performance on the ISTEP tests and other accountability measures.  

Letter grades are calculated upon data collected throughout each school year.  Indiana recently shifted to a more comprehensive way of measuring and reporting school performance, as required by state law.    These grades take into account various factors namely, student performance and individual student academic growth.  Each school’s A-F Accountability Report Card can be viewed at the Indiana Department of Education’s COMPASS Website at  

We are proud of our students and staff for the hard work and dedication that they put forth to achieve this level of excellence.  Way to go, Tigers!
