I'm a student and I'd say the staff could help with bullying a little better. One time I asked to talk to the school counselor and they said they would get back to me. They never did. I do get my work done, but there are lots of class interruptions. It could be better.

I was not happy with this school, but it wasn't until I pulled my child out and placed them elsewhere that I truly realized how awful this school really is. The lack of help from teachers combined with the continual class disruption from disrespectful/disobedient students makes learning very difficult. Although there are many good kids at this school, they are overshadowed by the gang members, delinquents and just plain disrespectful students. The principal and staff are not tough enough with the discipline. They know about many problem kids that bully and harass others yet do nothing about it. In my opinion, this school is not a safe place for any child to be or thrive academically.

I have two children attending O'hara. One struggles and needs extra time from teachers which isn't available due to huge classroom sizes. I am told to just keep checking the website or look into paid tutoring. My other child is essentially "punished" with an additional math class for being advanced. Gangs and juvenile parolees are prevalent. Both of my children have been instructed not to wear two or more items of the same color in order to not be mistaken for a gang member. I am extremely disappointed at the lack of student support and an entire academic system that puts advanced students into zero period along with regular classes for the same subject.

This school has really good and amazing staff! Every staff member helps make the school a good place so kids can learn and feel better about their education. The teachers give out real good help to any student who needs it and make the student feel better about themselves. I give the school a very good review!

This is a school that teaches all of us respect as well as other moral schools. They have great teaching plans and the 8th grade science taugh by Mrs. Masuzumi, in my opinion, is the most informative. This school also has a nice enviroment, we all feel comfortable with the teachers and are able to willingly talk to the counselors. O'hara offers a thing that is call 'peer helpers' and I am part of it. We are trained on how to solve conflicts while taking us through all the steps and the basic needs of people. As a peer helper we are called in the office to help solve conflicts among the student body.

I have just enrolled my two middle school children in Ohara. The office staff has been the best I have ever had the priviledge of working with. The principal is pretty cool too! I'm looking forward to my children's next two years at Ohara. I'm sure they're in good hands!

As a teacher at O'hara my opinion is slightly biased. However, I have had experience as a substitute teacher within various schools. O'Hara is the most caring, cooperative, and inovative school I have ever worked for. The students and teachers are dedicated and talented. The campus and grounds are beautiful. The school is committed to creating a safe environment for students mental and social growth. The faculty works together provided support, and an interdisciplinary atmosphere of shared learning.

The school seems to be pretty average for the most part. The teachers teach what they are supposed to at an okay rate. They have afterschool programs which help the students mingle. The parents seem to be more involved than other schools.

I am a student at O'hara. For the most part I am pleased with my school. The teachers are great. The office staff (secrataries, princable, vice, ect..) could be more heplfull and nice, but I cant change that. The athletic program is excellent. I am on the soccer team and our coach is wonderful. We are all lucky to even have a sports program. I will be graduating this year with the 2003-2004 class.
