The Oliver Street School faculty envisions a community of learners inspired by the universal principle of scholarship. At Oliver, students will be grounded by a rich past and charged by the challenges that face the human condition in order to distinguish themselves as problem solvers for the global community. The Oliver student will utilize knowledge to build wisdom and communicate foresight by way of an academic program that foments literacy in all subject areas. Debate will be the vehicle whereby competing ideas surface and are challenged; foreign language acquisition will expand the scope of our students’ horizons; and an environmental ethic will provoke students to bring solvency to a planet in peril. Our hallmark prepares youngsters to engage in critical dialogue, achieve cultural competence, and advance technological innovation for the 21st century.
