Welcome to Stephen Olney Elementary School, home of the Patriots!
Our school is a vibrant community made up of selfless, caring, and nurturing educators who work as a team with our talented, diverse, and beloved children to ensure our students and their families have the best elementary education experience possible.
We educate the whole child, meaning we teach in ways that help students grow academically, emotionally, and socially – all traits students will carry with them as they continue their education well past our elementary school walls. We’re determined to put all of our students on a path to success not only in schooling, but in life. That journey begins here in elementary school, a critical and invigorating time for our students and their families.
At Stephen Olney, we grow together and continue to build up our school community through personalized and meaningful learning, motivation, innovation, and forward-thinking education while meeting student needs from pre-kindergarten through 5th-grade. All students at Stephen Olney are respected, heard, appreciated, and engaged.
A love of lifelong learning begins here.
SOS is a safe, inclusive, learning environment of trust and belonging, where diverse cultures and
voices are valued and successes are celebrated.
Supported by their families and community members, our classrooms are a place where students and
● Develop academically, socially, emotionally, and personally
● Display empathy and respect for each other
● Collaborate and reflect on the present as they prepare for their future
Welcome! From the Principal’s desk
Dear families and community members,
At Stephen Olney, students are at the center of everything we do. Rigor, diversity, inclusion, individualism, creativity, and new ideas are the fabric of our school, where the youngest learners start their journey and flourish each step of the way. Our attentive, professional, and encouraging staff provide a strong support system for our students that shows children they are appreciated and heard.
While our school is a learning institute, there is a lot more that happens here than curriculum lessons and academics. Students here befriend many of their peers for the first time, creating lifelong friendships. Children at Stephen Olney catch the “learning bug,” and that love for learning only strengthens throughout their time at our school. Here, students dive into a wealth of knowledge, but start to see that learning is not temporary – it is a lifelong skill, as much as it is an endless journey all its own.
We are thankful to teach these energetic, curious, and inquisitive young learners every day, and our lives are made more whole by their presence. We’re here to partner with every student and their families to ensure everyone is able to make the most of the Stephen Olney experience.
