Great school community. Strict system but kids who behave are rewarded with fun activities . Teachers are great in general who really care about their students and to become successful liders. However, some staff people in the office are not that friendly and kind to visitors. They have some type of arrogance. In short, the teachers are absolutely awesome!

I attended this school the first year it opened. Now my son is in 8th grade there. I also reccomend any student that is entering Jr. High to go there. i feel that it is the safest, and best Jr HIgh school in Hayward Ca.

I am a 7th grader at a.o.m.s and i really like some of the teachers. the staff is awesome but they give a lot of homework. I really don't think I will make it to the 8th grade because their homework is tooooo HARD!!!!!! But it is a very great school for any kid to go to!

My Daughter is in the 8th Grade at Ochoa and has all Gate Classes, including Geometry for the first time at Ochoa. Mr. Stephens, the school principal is great and is really focused on the students and making sure they get 110% of what they need to succeed. I love Ochoa.

I am an 8th grader attending Ochoa Middle School and i think it's a perfectly good school. I am not in any accelerated classes but yet i still get high grades every semester especially with math witch is my worst subject. I can actually feel comfortable to be able to ask a teacher for help after school in math and my math homework. I am in the choir and i think it is amazing , i absolutely love it. The sound is also amazing. The school is very involved with many sports like football games , cheer leading , soccer , basketball , leadership and much more. I think the teachers are over all nice , i know their may be some teachers who parents dislike but i have to admit that Ochoa has the best Language Art's teachers and Math teachers also. Go bulldogs!

My oldest daughter attends Ochoa. She is autistic and is in a special ed class. She has thoroughly enjoyed and adapted well to the school. While her cousin is there and she doesn't fret about small things, she's doing great. I'm very happy right now.

As an 8th grade Honor Roll student from this school I believe that the some students attending the school are lacking sleep and knowledge. Received a certificate for having the best attendance throughout the HUSD. Very helpful teachers and guidances. Safety of the school is good. Band is improving. Choir is sensational. I;m not saying that because I am part of the group but we are doing very well.

They are always helping their peers as taught by teachers. Their music program is one of the best! The band is great and Choir is sensational. They have gotten 1st placed overall choir in the passed years. Its a a great school.

This school needs some improvements. The teachers need to be nicer with the students. Some teachers would get irritated if my child would ask them questions. I suggest to be extremely involved with this school.

Good school, trying to be successful. Student demographics have changed much over last two years. This has changed the overall feel of school. Still a great place to get an education from a dedicated group of professionals.

My child is currently enrolled at Ochoa. The Vice Principal and a handful of the teachers seem genuinely concerned about the students' education. However, as a whole, this school seems to be more concerned in getting the students to high school rather than preparing them for college.
