    "I have two children at Ophir School. Upper elementary and middle school. One of my children excels in academics, and the other struggles. However, I feel that the small teacher:student ratio is exactly what they both need. Ophir definitely meets the needs of all learning abilities. The school is fantastic. Myself and my peers feel that the previous review could not be more off base."

    "The staff at this school is not friendly and cannot work with children with any delay in education. The staff is set in their ways and refuse change with the changing environment in education. Teachers are unwilling to work well and communicate with parents. Teachers negatively discipline and create an good environment with kids. This school and teachers use peer pressure to make kids do what they want. This includes peer editing, behavior monitoring by other children, and punish everyone as a group rather the individual that is creating the problems. Teachers are not qualified to identify children with reading, writing, or math difficulties. The teachers over-rate kids as performing at grade level, when in fact, they are not. My child has been performing two levels under grade level with no improvement so they have given up on my child. This school only caters to gifted and talented kids. Both of my children have above average I.Q. and could handle creative work because they are smart but their disability in writing creates a challenge for this to happen. Also, once the child is identified as having a disability, the teacher wants no part in educating them."

    "Fantastic school. My family moved to Big Sky because we heard about the school. Involved teachers and an innovative curriculum. Lots of parent involvement and real focus on student achievement"

    "this is a terrible school because there are strict 'if one person is bad, everyone gets punished' rules. The teachers are unfair, and they let kids get blamed for things they didn't do. There are bullies who are completely evil to other kids, but because they pretend to be nice to the adults, the teachers do nothing about them."
