About Olive C. Martin Elementary School

  • Who We Are

    We are a staff that will nurture, engage, question, wonder, listen, build lasting relationships, and foster a love of inquiry.

    Our History

    Olive C. Martin School opened its doors at 24750 West Dering Lane in August of 2002 to just over 550 students and 65 staff members. Since then, we have grown to almost 700 students and more than 80 staff members. Mrs. Olive Martin, a longtime resident of Lake Villa, was instrumental in securing land for the school district years ago and was a well-respected school board member.
