    "This is my sons first and LAST year at this school. The bullying and fighting is out of control, and the staff gives off a very bad attitude as if they're only there for a check. There are no challenging programs, and two of my sons teachers are still training because they have never taught at a middle school before. There is no support for the children, and it seems as though they allow just any child to attend. My son excelled all throughout elementary and has come to the 6th grade at OWMS and started failing. One of his teachers couldn't even explain how she grades her students. Don't bring your child here unless you want them to fail and be bullied."

    "I'm sorry but it seems to me that the PARENTS of the rotten eggs should be interviewed & screened then DENIED the opportunity to bring their kids here. The Staff....well it's a revolving door of some (not all) careless paycheck seekers."

    "HORRIBLE school! This is my daughters first & last year here, I have seen a dramatic change in her since starting this school. I'm so sad she had to go here & thats ONLY because it's our home school and no other magnet's had openings. She did get in the honor magnet classes but is not challenging and the bullying & fights are out of control!!! My daughters says there's a fight every day, she even mentioned a girl said she was going to kill herself because of being bullied. It's sad this school is even operating and next yr will be a full magnet. Keep your child away from this school if you care about their future!!!!"

    "I understand that new leadership has its issues but come on. There's a kid threatening to harm himself and others here and the school is doing nothing. The first threat was back in December, another in February, another in March, and from what my son is saying....pretty much everyday. He's obviously trying to get help. What does it take from you guys to take this kid seriously? My son will definitely NOT be attending next year! I may even pull him out early for his own safety."

    "OWMS has had its ups and downs over the past years. Some want to attribute this to the change in leadership, teachers, budget, and students. It is all very true. When the interim principal was present, OWMS began to get its "light" back and staff was working together and a lot happier. Now, that it's under new administration from a former principal that was here before, things are back to the way they were prior to the interim...a mess. There is little to no staff support and everyone looks and feels terrible. With such a small population of students, there seems to be a high number of dysfunctional ones, and it's not because some are permitted students as stated below. It is because of the lack of support from parents, and the lack of "doing" from the principal. Additionally, the school lacks "a sense of belonging". Where is the beauty? Where is the pride? Where is the enrichment? There's more to a school than flight and a garden. Our students are extremely talented, but need some motivation to get them going. Teachers need some motivation to keep us sane, and healthy. I'm not sure that a full blown magnet will get the job done, but I can only be hopeful."
