    "This schools a joke be careful in choosing this school. Majority of staff & teachers are rude & think they know what best for YOUR child. They don't let kids go to the nurse my son went all day with a broken arm last yr; that he broke @ school,my other son was stung or bitten by something @ recess & was told ''let your 'mom deal with it when you get home''....had a teacher that wasn't putting grades in the book & telling him he needed to redo papers ....I found the graded ones & called him on his B.S ALL I got were excuses after exuses from the principle as to why...ALL I've ever gotten is excuses & how they feel this is the best school for my son. Long story short I had a son who loved school & now I have a son who hates it & crys every morning asking if he can stay home....PLEASE BE AWARE full of think they know it all's & eccuses"

    "I love O'dea and will be so sad to leave My daughter has been here for Kindergarten but we are moving out of state. The school has such a great feeling. The principle knows my daughter by name and her teacher is caring, amazing, talented and so good at teaching these kids all kinds of important things."

    "My kids have been at O'Dea since kindergarten. The first couple of years were great! Communication to parents was fantastic and my kids grew so much academically and socially. This last year has not been stellar and what we had come to expect from the staff. The principal has become more of a dictator over the scholl and doesn't want to hear parents concerns at all. The principal seems to think she knows what is best for your child not you as their parent. The teaches try their best but there is becoming an issue with an unbalance of special needs kids with autism in some classrooms. 5 autistic kids to 21 kids totalling 26 in one class is a bit much on one teacher. Academically both kids were achieving far beyond their grade level and this year we have seen that slip a lot. The school is growing too fast and combine that with the budget cuts, lets just say they aren't as great as they once were. The focus is shifting off of the kids and its not resulting in positive changes for the kids or the parents. I would recommend looking into another school for your kids until this principal is gone at least. I know we have started looking else where."

    "When we moved to Fort Collins we decided to try our neighborhood school before researching other options. We could not be happier with O'Dea! All teachers are highly involved and treats students as "everyone's student". The principal has years of experience and knows every kid in that school by name. The principal is quick to resolve any issues that may arise and all staff and faculty are dedicated to the success of students and the community. There is an active parental community. The autism program here is top notch and gifted students are readily identified and curriculum is tailor appropriately. We love O'Dea!"

    "They have a great group of teachers and faculty. Their teachers are great and I dont know about you, but I like a principal that knows every student by name and grade!! The principal is very helpful in many ways and LOVES her students. The teachers are fabulous and the way they teach the students is wonderful! My daughter loves the school and never wants to change. Im happy because she's happy!!!"
