Mount Olive Elementary School is located in the unincorporated, rural community of Mount Olive, which is in Jefferson County, Alabama. Mount Olive is bordered on the south and the east by the city of Gardendale. Some areas that had previously been in Mount Olive proper have been annexed into Gardendale over the past years.
The school currently serves approximately 350 students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. Our students primarily attend Gardendale middle and high schools once they complete the fifth grade. There are, however, a few fifth graders each year who attend North Jefferson Middle School in Kimberly which feeds to Mortimer Jordan High School, also in Kimberly.
