Volma Overton Elementary School

Scholars at Overton Continue to Excel

Picture
    Overton is not just a beautiful campus.  It is a place where talented teachers lead by an exemplary principal, Gilbert Hicks, spend each day nurturing and motivating scholars to do their best.      We are a pre-kindergarten to sixth grade campus offering high quality instruction at all grade levels.  Working closely with Communities in Schools, Boys & Girls Club of Austin, and our staff, scholars are prepared to be successful.  Our Bulldog Basketball program puts emphasis on developing scholar/athletes.
    Excellence is expected and achieved.   In 2011 testing, scholars once again achieved TAKS recognized status for the school.  Looking forward to STAAR testing which will begin in the 2011-12 school year, campus leaders and faculty are ready to prepare scholars for this new testing system being implemented by the state of Texas.
    Parents of prospective scholars are encouraged to contact the school to set up a time to meet with our faculty and staff in order to learn about the exceptional educational opportunities that Overton has to offer. 

Overton Mission Statement:
All students will progress academically and intellectually, and will graduate prepared for personal success and inspired to contribute to society.
