    "I am a going to be seventh grade student at OQMS the majority of the teachers are nice and very smart. The other few teachers aren't good with kids! Almost all the teachers are very friendly and fun. Truthfully my favorite teacher is Mr. Dennis Kennedy(the gym teacher) . He always boosts a sad kids mood and makes them much happier! He plays with all the kids and is always smiling. He is full of jokes and even makes the other teachers happy. He is a BLAST! The rules at this school are clear and enforced at all times. Are schools were used to seeing bomb threats! The school made sure that the Lemont police came in and taught the kids what was happening and what would happen if this continued. After that talk one more bomb threat was found. The school was at this time frustrated like never before. They finally had found the child and what the sheriff and school said was enforced. Our school has many people to talk to you if you are struggling and aren't to happy. This is a plus because most schools don't have as many as our school does. If you are struggling in classes our teachers will make sure you are doing better and will help in any way that you need. That is why OQMS is great !!"

    "It truly is a great and educationally enriching environment for your child, and the majority of the teachers have advanced degrees and come highly recommended in many areas of study. We do have large class sizes, but since this is a top priority to decrease of the new board I do believe a positive change in this regard will come along too. The public school system in our community needs the support of the people in that community. Regardless of whether you choose to send your children to public schools or not. Fostering our public schools instills a sense of community instead of rivalry, and shows our children how to grow with respect for their peers, teachers, and the people of their community. Old Quarry is a school with high academic standards that is growing with the youth of today."

    "Old Quarry & the District as a whole is in trouble. Going out for referendum is not going to help. They are very poor stewards of our tax dollars. Unemployment in Lemont is at 11%, not to mention the members of the community who are underemployed. I don't know where they think we are going to get the money for a tax increase. Not worth it. Superintendent should take a 20% pay decrease and knock off the stipends. The childrend are not going to see a penny of the referendum money. It's going for teacher & staff salaries."
