    "Osborne is not a very diverse school nor do the promote diversity. The staff is ill equipped to deal with the needs of all students. The classroom environment is gear to certain students and parents and if you do not fit a certain image you will be discriminated against. This school does not promote or welcome diversity."

    "Osborne is a great school with extremely warm and caring professionals. The teachers are engaging and highly motivatedbas well as creative. The support staff is highly trained and respectful. The school nurse is wonderful and has provided my family with a piece of mind due to our child's health conditions. My child looks forward to going to school each day and misses her teachers during the summer. My children are second generation Osborne students and third generation Quaker Valley Students. I am proud to volunteer in the school and be a part of this community!"

    "Osborne Elementary is a beautifully renovated school with much to offer. I have found the teaching staff to be excellent and dedicated--and this is coming from a parent of a child with special needs. As for new teaching concepts, visit their website and read about the awards given to Osborne. It is both a blue ribbon school and has received the Keystone Achievement Award for 4 straight years, so they must be doing something right academically! Parental involvement is indeed encouraged. I've had opportunities to volunteer in my child's classroom, and at many other events throughout the year. Sewickley is a racially-as well as socio-economically- diverse community, and Osborne reflects that. School visits are welcomed and encouraged for prospective families."

    "As a former student and now parent, this is a lovely school. The tradition is what makes it great. There isn't a high turnover on teachers so some of my same teachers got to be my childs teachers. There's something good to say about tradition. The school is definately academically competative. There IS a music program, and children wishing to learn an instrument are encouraged to do so in fourth grade. Newly remodeled school is beautiful. The school is doing great things for children with disabilities and learning disabilities. I am glad I was lucky enough to attend this school and am equally happy my children get that same opportunity."

    "In my opinion, this school suffered from lack of insight into new teaching concepts. Gender bias literature, conflicting messages to children regarding candy for reading incentives and fundraising, but dental professional visiting telling them candy is not good for teeth...Tenured staff...Too old school/ traditional. Parental participation in fundraising highly encouraged. Competition among students and grades encouraged. Informed/involved parents seemed to be discouraged. IF music was made available I was not aware of this.(lower grades) Not racially diverse. Left school after 3 months to private sector where my child excelled. The school was very secure at all times. (due to 9/11)."
