My son goes to this school. What I like about this school are the afterschool sports programs that keep the children busy and they attend competitive meets. The academics part is not bad, somewhat challenging. No complaints so far.

There are teachers at Olive Pierce Middle School who are allowed to bully students..just google the Channel 10 News audio of a teacher from Olive Pierce verbally abusing a student. This was not an isolated incident. There was another incident involving another teacher a special education teacher who ridiculed and bullied an autistic child in her classroom last year. Unfortunately the administration protects the teachers not the students. With all of the media regarding bullying in schools and zero tolerance for bullies in schools you would think that this would apply to teachers bullying students too especially when it is a special education teacher bullying a disabled student.

Agree with earlier post. The thought seems to be that if all of the kids get "A"s that they will be interested in school. We moved to another district and realize how poorly my kids were equipped. Everything seems geared to scoring high on API; writing instruction is horrible. Elementary schools were fine in Ramona, but Middle School is terrible.

This school is just okay. The good -- They have a great student-led closed-circuit TV stream every morning, which is excellent for involved students. Mr. Sclar is an awesome teacher who is very caring and involved in kids' lives. The not-so-good -- Counselors are a joke. The assistant principal and principal are, despite a great deal of public "face time," unapproachable. This is a public school though, so expectations should be aligned with that in mind. If you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed.

Any school with Bonnie Ingalls rates tops! See her Union-Trib comment of 5-13-'10 on page B6. Nelson F. Norman, Ph.D., History Emeritus SDSU

This school was ok. I found that the principal. Mrs. Solis at the time was anoying and could talk forever. There were some good teachers though such as Mr. Sclar (request him) and the librarians were awsome. other than that the rest of the school needed work, especially the PE program

I went to OPMS for 7th and 8th grade and I love it. It was the best two years of my life. The teachers were great. I learned so much there and am now doing great in high school. The councilors there really care about the students and all of the staff is very nice. OPMS is a safe and caring environment.
