I love this school i moved recently and i missed all my teachers and ive been to 3 different schools and i have to say the best one by far has been OMMS. You can see the sincere interest of the teachers to help the students really understand the information that they'll need in everyday life. you cant find the same interest and generosity of the teachers any where else! In one word: AWESOME!

Hey, my child goes to this school and plays basket ball. The coaches of the sports make sure that they have good grades, and if they get a bad grade they make them run or something along those lines.The teachers provide advanced classes for the gifted, and extra help classes for the students who need help. Some times they have people to come and talk to the students about making good life choices. Also, they have character assemblies where they give out awards for good character. The students try hard to win these awards. The teachers make learning fun, and enforce the rules. For example, if my child (he wouldnt normally do this) was being a bully, they would fix the problem and would send my son to get suspended. The electives are amazing, too. Especially the band program. The band directors do an am amazing job pushing the kids to play hard music, and the result is an amazing band and perfect reviews after competitions. I highly recommend this school!

I go to this school and have SO much fun! The teachers are great, and they are always open to talk and ask questions. OMMS' strict no bullying program provides a safe learning enviroment, and the lunch provides many delisious choices. I have never loved a school soo much.... 5 stars!!

I just 'graduated' from this school in May. I've been in the Oak Mountain school district since kindergarten, and I'd say it has it's problems but it's still a good school. The school is pretty much run like a boot camp, if you're tardy you don't just get away with it. The dress code does get really annoying at times but overall i don't have many complaints. The main thing i guess is bthat I don't feel that challenged. There are only 3 advanced classes available and when i'm not in those i find everything really boring. The teachers are nice and the principal is cool, but it is getting kind of crowded.

This school is great! i'm a soon-to-be 8th grader, and let me just say i love it here! It is like a boot camp though... Yep... Beware if you don't have your belt, or if your shirt isnt tucked in you get a detention! I find that a little over the top. Most of the teachers are nice, and kind, but beware some of them are a tiny bit strict. Otherwise i think this is a great school! There is plenty of before and after school help, and we are always striving to be the best!

School has structure. Does a great job of keeping 6th, 7th, and 8th graders seperated by classes exiting at different bells. Kids are very accounted for. If my child isn't at his next class, they are on the walkie talkies looking for him. No skipping issues, etc. Does a great job at working the bad/ trouble kids out early in the year. I acutally feel safe sending my child to school here. I love the teachers/ principals. They really worked with me. I am single mother of a headstrong 12 year old. He just didn't want to perform to his potential. This school did a great job in bringing out the best in him and keeping him in line. Fyi- get to know your teachers early and communicate so that you can spot out problems early on. Plenty of before/ after school tutoring available.

I personally agree with the comments that posted in March' 06. The parents try to be as involved as possible, but the Administration acts like they are running a boot camp instead of a public school. The Assistant Principals portray themselves to be more like wardens than that of compassion filled, but still strictly guided administrators.

Principal leadership is superb. The school is overcrowded, as are all schools in the Oak Mountain district, and they can not keep up with the growth in the area. Students are encouraged to excel in their area of interest, whether it is academics, fine arts, or athletics. Teachers are motivated and caring. Parental involvement could always be better, but it seems to be limited by the school officials.

One child has completed 7th and 8th grade, another 6th going into 7th. Remarkable leadership by Dr. White!! Kids are respected and taught strong moral values!
