I am a MT Olive resident with young kids who are not yet school age. As I ask neighbors about the Mt. Olive school system I seem to get answers from every end of the spectrum. So I wanted to post this question to a broad audience - what is your honest opinion of Mt Oilve schools? Any insight into their teaching philosophy etc?

I am no education expert by any means but in my humble opinion, it seems to me that using current methods for education is of utmost importance. Ihear terms like "21st century education" which seem to call for changes is how we educate.

Essentially, kids that are starting off in school today need to be prepared for jobs that may very well not even exist yet. Think about how much technology has changed in the last 10 - 20 years. Considering things are changing at an even faster pace who knows what will await them.

Bottom line: are mount olive schools worth going to? if not, what are the reasonable private school options in the area?

The high school is rated #90 out of 322 high schools, so I would say not bad.

I'll be a sort of lone dissenter. I have several friends with kids in Mt. Olive Elementary schools, and they are very pleased. I've heard the elementary schools are excellent. The middle school and HS are a different story. Not "bad" by any stretch, but I've always felt that for the taxes you pay in MO, the "upper" schools should be much better. The "bang for the buck" to me doesn't exist there. I know there's another poster who will agree with me...let's see if he chimes in.

(I lived there for almost 6 yrs as well)
