    "All three of my children have attended Ola Middle School. It is one of the best schools in the county. I have been very satisfied with the level of instruction my children have received, and as my older two entered high school, they were very prepared for the rigor expected of them in honors classes. The teachers bend over backwards to contact parents and let us know what is going on. Mrs. Truitt has definitely increased the rigor at the school, which is a very good thing, and the fine arts program at the school is beyond a doubt the best in the county and one of the best in the state. I could not have asked for a better school for my children to attend."

    "Ola schools are the best in Henry County-we bought our house for our three kids to go to these schools. We have loved the elementary, middle and high schools. The negative reviews on here are just crazy, if you don't like it here move-houses sell here in days!"

    "My son was enrolled in a private school for pre-k - 4th grade. We moved him to Ola Elem for 5th grade and he has gone through 6th & 7th grades at Ola Middle. Best decision ever! At Ola Middle, the students are challenged. The teachers work extremely hard to know every student and have excellent communication! The principal, Mrs. Truitt, is awesome with the kids! Each time I have had a question about anything, she has been more than happy to discuss it with me. She makes sure parents and students feel comfortable in the middle school setting. Mrs. Truitt makes sure info is well communicated through phone calls, emails, & the school Facebook page. The office staff is very helpful and friendly. The Fine Arts program (band, chorus, orchestra, drama, art) is amazing and definitely worth seeing in concert! The athletic directors are awesome and not only teach the athletes the skills of the game, but also to respect their teachers, parents, other teams, and each other. The elementary school, middle school, and high school all work together as a community. I highly recommend Ola Middle. Definitely deserves 5+ stars!"

    "This is my daughter s first year at OMS, we have been in the Ola district since 2nd grade with no complaints. UNITL NOW! The teachers and staff members at OMS are the rudest group of people I have encountered. This school has an 8 on the scale but the 8 only stands for test scores! The way you treat people HAS as to be apart of what makes a school Great. I remember the first day of open house at OMS, I walked up to Mrs. Truitt to ask where a classroom was located in the school so my daughter and I could meet her new teacher. I extended my hand to introduce myself to Mrs. Truitt and she gave me a look like I've never seen, almost like she could not believe I walked up to her and dare ask a question! I should have known right then and there that this is not the environment I want my daughter in. OMS needs to take it's own advise on the no bulling policy and treat your students and parents a little nicer and with respect. We will relocating as soon as possible."

    "My daughter started Ola Middle in 6th grade. That year was a good school year. This past school year she was bullied throughout the school year. The new principle Mrs. Truitt didn't do anything about it until we got the board of education involved. My daughter wasn't the first child that has been harassed in the school. We have met other parent that have had issues with the school."
