For the parent who posted a review on March 30, 2014, and made a special point of first complaining about the "ignorance" of another parent who had posted a comment earlier, adding a haughty suggestion to that parent to "check your spelling"....... You wrote that "our child....has been excepted to serveral private high schools...." when you meant to write "accepted", and "we have been notified of excessing talking...." when you meant to write "excessive." Check this out: "And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" Matthew 7:3

My son just finished his first year at wright middle as a 6th grader. He finished with straight A's! His teachers were very good with keeping me informed with my son's progress and also where he needed to work more. The staff was always helpful whenever I had questions. I am very pleased with the school and my son enjoyed his first year and wants to return for 7th.

For the parent who made the last comment: Very ignorant comment on your part and check your spelling. Our child has been extremely successful for the last three years and scored a perfect score in math last year on the CST. You cannot earn that without being taught well and your child staying focused. Our child has great grades and behavior marks and has been excepted to several private high schools, passing the examination at a high percentile. Our child has never been bullied and gets along with all diverse learners. When we have been notified of excessing talking, as a family, we do not place blame on the school or other students. We teach our child to take responsibility for negative actions and to fix the situation. Mrs. Wantz and the staff work hard to improve not only the academics within the school but to provide positive incentives for those students who earn them and work with those students who need assistance. Parents need to be involved in their child's education and behavior. Placing blame on a school does not solve any issues.

This is my sons first and LAST year at this school. The bullying and fighting is out of control, and the staff gives off a very bad attitude as if they're only there for a check. There are no challenging programs, and two of my sons teachers are still training because they have never taught at a middle school before. There is no support for the children, and it seems as though they allow just any child to attend. My son excelled all throughout elementary and has come to the 6th grade at OWMS and started failing. One of his teachers couldn't even explain how she grades her students. Don't bring your child here unless you want them to fail and be bullied.

I'm sorry but it seems to me that the PARENTS of the rotten eggs should be interviewed & screened then DENIED the opportunity to bring their kids here. The Staff....well it's a revolving door of some (not all) careless paycheck seekers.

HORRIBLE school! This is my daughters first & last year here, I have seen a dramatic change in her since starting this school. I'm so sad she had to go here & thats ONLY because it's our home school and no other magnet's had openings. She did get in the honor magnet classes but is not challenging and the bullying & fights are out of control!!! My daughters says there's a fight every day, she even mentioned a girl said she was going to kill herself because of being bullied. It's sad this school is even operating and next yr will be a full magnet. Keep your child away from this school if you care about their future!!!!

I understand that new leadership has its issues but come on. There's a kid threatening to harm himself and others here and the school is doing nothing. The first threat was back in December, another in February, another in March, and from what my son is saying....pretty much everyday. He's obviously trying to get help. What does it take from you guys to take this kid seriously? My son will definitely NOT be attending next year! I may even pull him out early for his own safety.

OWMS has had its ups and downs over the past years. Some want to attribute this to the change in leadership, teachers, budget, and students. It is all very true. When the interim principal was present, OWMS began to get its "light" back and staff was working together and a lot happier. Now, that it's under new administration from a former principal that was here before, things are back to the way they were prior to the interim...a mess. There is little to no staff support and everyone looks and feels terrible. With such a small population of students, there seems to be a high number of dysfunctional ones, and it's not because some are permitted students as stated below. It is because of the lack of support from parents, and the lack of "doing" from the principal. Additionally, the school lacks "a sense of belonging". Where is the beauty? Where is the pride? Where is the enrichment? There's more to a school than flight and a garden. Our students are extremely talented, but need some motivation to get them going. Teachers need some motivation to keep us sane, and healthy. I'm not sure that a full blown magnet will get the job done, but I can only be hopeful.

My son is in his second year at Orville Wright. There are some good teachers and because the new students that enrolled is less, the 6th graders had no choice, but to be put in the Magnet area. The bulling is a problem, which is really sad. I'm hoping that the principal does the job that we pay him to do.

My daughter attended Orville Wright for all of her Middle School years. She excelled with all the wonderful teachers here and was told continually during her high school parent conferences, whoever taught the group of students who were from OW did a great job as her current teachers are able to move at a faster pace. My son is currently in 7th grade and has been challenged by all ciriculum at the school. He has been doing a lot of projects (individual & group) which have given him an excellent chance to learn from each one. We looked at other middle schools, but loved the diversity of the students at the school, magnet coordinator, & magnet teachers.

Orville Wright is in a sorry state. They continue to lose students and it is hard to see how they are going to keep it open for more than another year. They only give lip service to their anti-bullying campaign. My son was punched in the face by another boy in the classroom and he did not strike back. Although the teacher sent out the other boy, he was returned to the class by an administrator about 10 minutes later. The administrator said "He said he was sorry and he will act right." A few minutes later this same bully cursed at my kid and throw a pencil at him. The kid was sent out only to come back a few minutes later. This boy should have been suspended or at least kept in the office on the first offense. The only time they clean the campus is when they are trying to recruit parents to send their kids. In October they held such an event and now the campus is back to being dirty. I am saddened by the situation and am joining the parents who have pulled out their child.

This school is horrible. Apparently, the principal has told the teachers on the first meeting of the semester that he was glad that he was demoted from the District Office, so now he can "coast" and doesn't have to work hard. He certainly does not work hard and sees this job as little more than a paycheck. This school gets a new principal every year, so this guy probably knows this and doesn't care what happens. If you have read many of the previous reviews, you will see that they all mention that there is a lot of bullying at this school, even the positive reviews are forced to mention this problem. The bullying is very out of control and little is done about it. The noise levels in the classrooms tend to be very high and it is difficult to see how any learning can take place. When I saw how all the classes my son was in were so out of control, I pulled him out that day. If you care about your child, don't send them to this school! If you don't care, go ahead and put them in!

This school has lost about 1/2 it's students in the last year because it is being poorly run. Often, the principal is gone for the day before the students are dismissed and sometimes leaves as early as noon. When the school had to displace teachers because of low enrollment, they sent away the best teachers and kept the weak teachers who have no classroom control. Bullying is out of control on the campus and there are many fights that occur on the campus daily. The campus is often littered with trash. Parents have been changing over to other middle schools in the area: Mark Twain, Audubon, Marina Del Rey. All of these schools are easily better than Orville Wright.

Orville Wright Middle/Magnet is a school that can withstand many challenges and succeed. With new, permanent leadership in place many changes are already shining through. CST scores show an improvement in all areas, safety has been improved and the teachers continue to put their best foot forward even in challenging environments. More parent involvement would be a plus. Students need to understand that an education is the key to success, not being disruptive and disrespectful both of themselves and others. Assemblies are being held to address bullying along with the "no tolerance" policy in the District. Classes are above the norm due to student enrollment being low. Parents, why pay for education when you have an excellent school right in your neighborhood. Charter schools stress that they provide better yet the charters in this area have parents enrolling in Orville after attending the charters since August 2012. No school is perfect but at Orville we are very close. Parents need to come and visit, meet the new administration and the teachers. I'm sure you will like what you see. My daughter attended for 3 yrs. She appreciates the strong foundation they provided.

I currently have an 8th grade son in the aerospace magnet and a 7th grade daughter in the community school. My son has learned how to fly a plane in this program. On March 12, 2012 he flew a Cesna C-172A for free with classmates and the young eagles program. My son has high functioning autism and struggles socially but the teachers and staff all listen kindly and patiently to him. Middle school is a struggle for anyone. I love that my kids walk to school. My daughter has made some lovely friends and has assisted in planting and harvesting in the school garden. Last year they took a field trip to the Santa Monica Farmers market. And her class published a community garden cook book. At the last honor roll assembly there were over 300 kids. I feel like my kids are getting a well rounded experience. I just wish everyone that lived in our community would go here, but there are so many choices that the kids end up all over. The teachers so far have been so nice too. Let's face it middle school kids are not easy so I give them respect for doing what they do on a budget.

My child recently finished a second year at Orville Wright, all I can say is this school is absolutely the worst. Most of the students there are all from out of the area on LAUSD's choices program. The office staff is rude, they lack the ability to communicate. My child had one 6th grade teacher who actually tried to change her teaching ways to accommodate, other than that the teaching staff will not bend, I thought the purpose of being an educator was to make a difference, not at this school. This school year there will again be a new principal, the 3rd since last year. I repeatedly went to the school with concerns about my child's education that went ignored, I was instead told how my child is the worst kid at the school, my child is the most disrespectful, etc...another way for the school to deflect from the real problem...which is the fact that this is an under performing school. It is in 5th year PI (program improvement) and the only way to bring it out of PI is to have test scores rise, which this school can not do because they lack a staff/faculty that is willing to go the extra mile.

I attended this school. I didn't learn a thing. Some of the kids were out of control. I remember there being many kids from out of the area, perhaps with permits? But for this being a magnet school, I saw no challenge in the curriculum. The principal at the time was friendly. The worst part was definitely the lack of discipline in many of the students. But I would assume that children's behavior is guided by good leadership and for some reason, this school didn't have it. It was one of my least favorite memories in school and I've always been one to love and appreciate education.

There's only 1 word i could use to describe Orville Wright middle school. that word is disfunctional. The administration at the school are very passive, and if you report a problem the first thing they do is; nothing. I am a student at Orville Wright and my two years here have been terrible. In most of my classes the only things I've learned are the definition of most curse words and how to throw a good punch. The students here have no manners what so ever. The only good thing about this school is that the majority of the teachers are very kind and they take the time to help out students that actually want to learn.

I had a chance to meet the new principal and I was very impressed with his enthusiasm and motivation.

It's obvious that the post below is not really a parent. This school is underperforming middle school age children in everyway. As other have noted, the amount of bullying that the adminstration allows is unacceptable. It's unacceptable that this is the only public option for tax payers in this area. This school does not provide a safe and quality education for our children. This area needs smaller schools who properly serve the community, rather than one that fails to provide what children deserve to succeed.

Two of my children have attended Orville and both have received an excellent education. The test scores of my children show they're not only learning state standards but are excelling above them. Their honors programs are excellent. The teachers and administration are great and the campus is clean and safe. I recommend taking a tour for yourself to see all the wonderful opportunities offered. I wouldn't consider going to a different school when the one in our neighborhood has great API scores, great teachers, and definately prepares students for college.

My kids have attended Orville for the past two years and have had a wonderful experience. The staff is very hands on and caring. The curriculum has been challenging and most of all I love that they are attending their neighborhood school. They have friends from the neighborhood that they walk home with and have felt safe on campus. We have a new Principal this year that has set the bar high and I forsee great things happening over the next year. This is one of the few schools that met the subgroup targets. It shows that they are teaching all children!

My son is a 6th grader at Orville and I am very dissatisfied with the school. The teachers and staff show no leadership capibilities. The teachers only care about your child if they earn good grades and sit quietly. My son is talkative so he has been treated poorly even called a bad name by one teacher. The campus is covered in trash on a daily basis and the children are rude and curse openly. Needless to say, this is our last year at this school.

I have a son who attends Wright magnet and is in the 6th grade. I have found since the first day of school many issues with the quality of teaching and management of the children. My son has been involved with many un called for situations. he was suspended for defending himself against another boy who laid hands on my son. The teachers promise to keep you informed about your child, however since day one I only hear from them when the problem is out of control. They also claim that they will rspond to you quickly if you need them. I have e-mailed for months without response. the classes are over crowded and in my opinion the school is a poor choice for any child. My son will not be attending there after this year.

I have attended this school for all 3 years, & about to graduate. In my opinion, this school is below average. Examples include right on the students. Most are highly disrespectful, very rude, and there are many fights & arguments amongst the students. Sometimes there are racial discriminations from students towards other students. In my 7th grade year, I can recall a 'rumble' between the Hispanic/Latino against the African-Americans. Of course, the fight was stopped right when it occurred, but the violence is clearly unncessary. In my case, I believe the teachers I've had is good in most cases. They can teach fairly well. Most will help you and they do care about your grades. The school has some good extra curriculum actvities, such as the Flight Simulator. I'm not pleased with the environment, though. The halls and school grounds are always covered with trash. Overall, the school is below average.

I had just graduated from this school and I think this school is pretty average. I was in the high honor classes throughout my three years at Orville Wright and my teachers were great. My teachers cared about me and my grades. If I was behind they would personally help me out until I got the lesson. My councilor really helped me out and in my opinion the best councilor ever Dr.Kobashi she has the dedication to help out students and understands the students. But to honest i am not very fond of our new principal Mr.Stapleton and think that the schools old principal understood the students better.I also liked the electives offered but a language elective would be a nice edition.Orville Wright is pretty good school I enjoyed my years a Iot I would have no problem recommending this school to parents.

I attended Orville Wright for 2 years now and I still am highly unimpressed.This school doesn't provide a safe environment for its students. Also the relationships between students are terrible in my opinion. The children are just plain rude and mean, and the school is dirty. Children here believe they can have the last word in an argument and are highly disrepectful. The school work is far from challenging,and teachers don't seem to care. I wonder how much worse the school will become now that LAUSD has no money, they are already taking away some electives and i think getting rid of the library.I'm not sure how other children feel about this school, but if anything it probably isn't about education since here at Orville most of the children worry about social status.

It has a wonderful counciler for all three grades, the 6th grade coulciler is Ms. Cheffy, the 7th grade counsiler is Ms.White, and the 8th grade counsiler is Mr. Mandell. Also our loving and caring principal is Mr.Staplton. They also provide honer clases, HighHoners clases, and S.A.S clases.

My son has attended Wright since the 6th grade. I am very happy with Wright. Overall it's a great school however, like any school it needs to work on the communication with the parents, students and teachers. don't wait until the very end of a grading period to notify a student that he is not working up to par. Keep up with the phone calls when the parents call and keep a breast of what the child is doing in the form of academics. It takes the teacher , the student and the parents to succeed.

My child has been at Wright for nearly 3 years now. Thankfully his teachers have impressed me, particularly in the English and history departments. But there is much to improve: an unimpressive principal, a lack of extra activities and special programs, and little integration of computers and technology in classroom instruction. The principal seems to know very little about truly improving teaching and learning, as the teachers complain about irrelevant meetings and trainings put on by the administration. I'm concerned about the poor behavior of many students, but this seems to be improving. More parent participation could help in most of these areas.

Orville Wright Magnet is a very good school. I have had two sons attend the school and both have received good preparation for high school. I believe that the current administration is enthusiastic and dedicated. Like all of LAUSD it is limited in terms of facility. I rank its music and drama programs highly. Extracurricular activities are lacking. There is a small core of very involved parents and a huge need for more parental involvement. Neither of my sons ever feared for his safety. Fears about Orville are much exaggerated. I encourage all families in Westchester to send their children to Orville. The school would only improve if it received more support from the local community.

Im very impressed with the academic school program offered at Orville Wright Middle School. The teachers have provided active involvement/interaction with their students to assist the students in achieving a large number of honor roll students. In addition to the academic accomplishments, my son also participated in sports-basketball. Wright offered a basketball tournamemt in lieu of a full basketball team. The PTA support at Wright was well received, much higher than support within the elementary school. School security outstanding, the students were able to attend school in a safe environment.

The school is in obvious transition, it seems to lack a concrete plan. There is alot of potential here. The teachers are good, well trained and care about the kids. The district needs to give them more money for auxillary staff so the teachers can only worry about teaching and not 'how many jobs do I have'. There needs to be something of discipline procedure that involves the kids, parents and staff. And but not least, extracurricular activities are needed, only a very small % of the kids go on field trips.

Although very likable, the principal has his own agenda and he lets personal differences with the faculty interfere with the learning process. There is no discipline plan in place at this school; if you don't believe me, please call and ask if there is. And if there is, request to see a copy of it and post it here. I have been told for two years now that they are 'working on it'. The teachers are generally not happy here because of the way they are treated by the administration. However, they will still do everything they can to help your student learn and give them the best learning environment that they can with these limitations. The school needs some major repairs; very run-down and parts seem unsafe as another parent commented. Thank you for your time.

My son has attened this scholl for 1 year and I have nothing but praise for the principal and the staff. The teachers are very well trained and always willing to meet with parents when necessary. The principal has strong leadership skills and is very concerned with the progress of his students. I feel good about the future of this school.

OWMS definitely needs to change their policy on disciplinary actions. The teachers are well trained for the most part and make themselves available. I appreciate the extended learning program they implemented. It's working!

Orville Wright Middle is a satisfactory school. Teachers are very well trained. But the school also needs to improve on its methods of discipline. The school is also in desperate need of renovation. Bathrooms are filthy and the school looks as if it were about to fall apart.

This school is in desperate need of renovation to the point of being a safety hazard. My children even had a math class that doubled as a maintenance storage room! My children just transferred to another district and the difference is unbelievable in all areas of the learning experience. LAUSD needs to look into improving Orville Wright Middle School sooner than later.

The school needs improvment in the areas of discipline and overall safety for the students. Please forward questions to LAPD Pacific Division. They will be able to provide specific details.
