OHMS is a wonderful, supportive school for all types of students. Everyone from the principal to the teachers to the front office staff cares about the kids. The school has many extra programs to engage the students, including book clubs, chess club, etc.

A few teachers might be happier in a religious school. Their views enter the classroom too often.

This school is amazing-the principal is awesome. She is very engaging with her students, and readily available to parents. Can't go wrong being a part of OHMS!

We recently moved to the area from out of state. I have a daughter that is in the Resource program and I cannot say enough about how great this school is. They have given her so much help and support and have turned her education around! The teacher's are always available, hard-working and love their students. This school has gone above-and-beyond in giving the best possible education to their students!
