Teacher effectiveness: Effective

The teachers are great, their resources are not. There are better textbooks to use in this school or at least better worksheets from another source.

The teachers are very friendly and caring but the principal isn't doing enough. Some people think this is a good school but actually, it is far behind. I know because we went to a good school. This school focuses their funds on "fun events" rather than put it more towards educational funds for the school. The worksheets are boring and repetitive. Hardly any parent involvement and no one does anything about bullies. This school could improve, it has potential.

I absolutely love this school and the staff. My oldest now in high school attended there since 2nd grade and now my youngest is in 1st grade. Test scores are improving and I love the leadership of our new principal Mr. Bagger.

My daughter has attended this school since Kinder in 2009 and we had such a FANTASTIC teacher Mrs. Fajardo!!! We ran into some bumps in the first grade in which I feel both the teacher and principal were of no help. However 2nd grade is awesome, my daughter loves her teacher and loves going to school. The PTA holds lots of fundraisers to help the school financially and we love attending, helping and participating!

I have had four of my children attend the Ontario Center School over the last 14 years. My last child who is now 8 years old attends their currently. I Love the consistency of the school. The teachers are caring and always willing to work together as a team to teach the children. The participation by the prinicipal and the administration in encouraging the children is very motivating to them. They also have always had a phenominal PTA that raises thousands of dollars each year. The PTA has enabled our children to have field trips and has paid for extra supplies that are not in the budget of our school due to funding cuts. Finally their is alot of parent participation, and this is definitely encouraged by the staff at The Ontario Center School.

My 5 year old says Mrs Bowen is a great teacher! I am happy to see my child learning and doing wonderful in school. So far no complaints. I usually assist in the class and it's so much fun.

I had 2 children in this school. The teachers are great, but my children got left behind! My 5th grader went from a 6.6 grade level to a 5.1. Both of my children dreaded going to school everyday. This school also hands out bench tickets like crazy! Everyday one of my children was on the bench, mostly for not standing in line once they got to school.

The Ontario Center School is a very good school.The principal and the teachers are very much involved with the students. They see to it that each student is rewarded or acknowledged for their efforts. The students are disciplined and well-behaved.
