    "The only thing I can honestly complain about this school is the Athletics Department Basketball tryouts and team selections. There is no way possible the coaches pick the team based on skill. I sat and watched kids who couldn't even handle the ball play on the A team. I am not the only parent who made the comment in the stands. If you played Football, your tall and African-American you automatically make the A basketball team. It doesn't matter to the coaches that these most of these kids have major attitudes, spend time in OCS (on campus suspension) or are just down right disrespectful. The kids who showed up to tryouts everyday get put on B Team, but the once who played football or know the coach and only showed up for one day of tryouts make the A team. I think it is also a big Joke, to have a football coach teaching basketball. This B Team coach had no idea what he was doing. The plays he taught the kids made them look like a bunch of 3rd grade YMCA basketball players! It is very sad when at the end of the season, the A team kids tell the B team kids not to bother trying out next year, cause they know they will be the ones to make the team!"

    "Horrible school to go to. Bullying is a major issue and administration is ineffective. Racism is a major issue as well- Caucasian children are a target."

    "Huge problem with bullying & administration fails every time to investigate properly. I have suffered this ongoing issue with two children. Children make threats & fight all the time while the children that defend themselves after being bullied so many times have to be punished & ticketed."

    "I am happy with the changes Ousley Jr. High has been making. As a parent I feel much more informed and involved with the school and my childs education. The automated phone calling system is wonderful. I also enjoy the PTA emails about all the different events taking place. My kids and I have also enjoyed the different fundraiser/family nights at the local resturants. It's nice to see the kids with their parents outside of school. Good Job!!!!"

    "This school is so disorganized and it not put together well at all. My kid was threatened and all they did was send her back to class. Plus they do nothing to the 'bad' kids who are in a troubling situation, only the 'good' kids get good treatment. And STILL half the time they don't get good treatment."
