Principal's Corner


Welcome to Olive Branch Intermediate School! The faculty and I would like to thank you for letting us be a part of your educational journey.

Upon entering Olive Branch Intermediate School, you will find a safe learning environment.  It is important to me that my students' parents know that we are committed to providing your child with a safe and supportive school environment. Together we can create an environment where students feel safe to take academic risks and to try new things as they build strong relationships with teachers and classmates.

Our goal is to GROW every student as a reader, writer, mathematician, and scientific thinker all while becoming a productive participant in a strong and supportive school culture.  We seek to meet your child where he is and help him reach his full potential. We need parents as partners!

We are here to serve our students, parents, and community to the best of our abilities.  The children are always our first priority.  We will work hard to keep them safe as they transform into productive scholars, thus preparing them for successful futures in today's progressing society.

We are excited about this school year and all the learning opportunities that will blossom throughout the school year.

We welcome your HELP and SUPPORT at OBIS. Your input is valued as we strive to meet our goals.   

The faculty and I are looking forward to a successful and productive year with you and your family.
