    "My son has been going to ORA since 3rd grade, I've been impressed since day one of the small class rooms, challenging homework, and the support of all the teachers going over and beyond. My son is now in the 5th grade and I'm definitely going to enroll him in the middle school."

    "I have 4 children at ORA. My oldest is in 2nd grade and has been their for 3 years. My family and I love this school and the environment. They force the children to dress for success on a daily basis and to take responsiblilty for their actions. I am a very involved parent and the staff works with my family and I to make sure my children are getting the best education possible. Some parents need to realize that the educating of our children starts at home and you can't expect everything to be taught in school. If you don't start this process at home, your child is already at a disadvantage."

    "For the teacher who stated that all Mr. Smith cares about is money, all I have read about is what she is so unhappy about which just happens to be money. This teacher needs to re-evaluate what exactly she is at the school, and is her ultimate goal money or making sure our children learn."

    "This school needs to be closed down, ORA makes Detroit public schools look like Harvard. The entire school year, my son has not had field trips, they are unorganized. I do not suggest this school to ANYONE. This year is my childrens LAST year at ORA"

    "Melvin Smith the CEO of Old Redford Academy cares about only one thing, MONEY! Back in 2008, the students didn't have enough outdated books, but the whole administartion staff went to Aruba for a "Professional Development". Good teachers get let go, because they are due for a raise and replaced by teachers fresh out of college. Half of them don't even make it through the school year, but their "CHEAP". This kind of corruptness that needs to be eradicated from Detroit, not put on display for all the Kids to see."
