    "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."

    "Ola Middle has some of the greatest teachers in the county. My son is a product of Henry Co schools and is doing very well. I have been very happy with the education he has gotten so far. He is now preparing for high school and is taking 5 college prep courses. We moved to Ola for the schools and are very glad we did... to be honest if you are so unhappy with the schools, rent your house and try another school system. Seems might strange to me OMS is rated one of the top 1,000 public schools in the NATION and parents still find something to complain about. I have no complaints and neither does my son."

    "Ola is a terrific school. The teachers are top notch and work incredibly hard to ensure that students have the tools they need to succeed. Many of the negative reviews on here deal with things that are completely beyond the school's control. Textbooks are adopted at the county level. Due to state budget cuts, no schools have math or ELA textbooks for students to take home. Bullying is taken seriously, and the counselors do an incredible job. The fine arts program here is top notch. All three of my children have gone to Ola and I have been exceedingly happy with this school."

    "If your child is being bullied DO NOT EXPECT IT TO STOP! My child suffered broken bones and the school gave the child a 3 day suspension. The teachers are a huge part of the bullying problem. Certain ones will even tell the kids "go ahead and tell..who will the school board believe..a teacher or you?" Even after a complaint to the principal nothing is being done. So disappointed we wasted money on a house in this district!"
