DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! This school is an ABSOLUTE JOKE. I came from Illinois, and back east "charter" means private and usually quality, but this is not what I got with Omega. There are no sports or clubs, but thats not nearly the worst of it. I had students in the 5th and 6th grades back in '05 and they were in the same classroom all day being taught the same thing! And all the work was elementary at best! My 6th grader came home with "2+2=?" math problems, I KID YOU NOT! Furthermore, the teacher turnover rate was absolutely terrible! My 5th grader had a total of 5 teachers that year! And don't even get me started on Dean Wooldridge! I hope that lady has been fired. My biggest regret is letting my kids stay there for the whole year. My daughter will be attending Johns Hopkins University in the fall and that would not have been possible if she would have continued in that stifiling environment. Please do not send your kids here; give them a real chance.

This school is ran so poorly. None of the teachers at either campus have experience or a degree in education. Students fine themselves behind then they transfer to other schools and since this school is not accredited most high schools don't even accept their credits. There are constant sewer and air conditioning problems that go unfixed for long periods of time. Students are force to sit in rooms with no A/C in over 100 degree weather. There are few books and no modern technology in the classroom. There is an extremely high turnover rate of teachers. Payroll checks bounce and teachers are ask to teach without pay. Eventhough; the owner of the school had a million dollar house built a couple of years ago. The lead elementary teacher (Northern Campus) supplies students with some of the answers during AIMS test . If you care about your child's education, don't send them to Omega!

Great school My children went there in 2007-2008 , teachers are great specially Mrs. gina and Mrs. Mc cool. When we move to Tempe my oldest daughter was doing so good that she has to skip a year, my oldest son is doing good too. The pricipal was very helpful with parents.

not a good school anymore. smoke bombs in classrooms, too many fights. not enough teachers. teachers are dismissed too often. values just arn't their anymore.....a teacher gave answers to students on the aims test..... I had to take my kids out after being their 8 years. My recommendations is don't go their if you don't have to. Their are alot better schools if you just bother to look. I found another one that is better and am happy!!!!

This school is better then most public schools. The teachers care a lot about the kids. Some of the teachers allows parents to sit inside of there classrooms and watch kids learn.

This school is horrible do not send your children to this school. The teachers care, but due to the lack of leadership the turnover rate is too high.

The quality of the adminstration at this school is terrible. It is a very disorganized place and there are no materials. the teachers are very dedicated and my daughter says the teachers care for the kids but they can't do much because there are no supplies. Do not send your child to this school if you want him to be educated.

This school when it comes to keeping it's parents informed on the different activites taking place is very lacking. It seems to need better management. I am removeing my child, and would not send your child to this school. Just review the State of Arizona's report card for this school and you will agree.
