I attend O'Connell Middle School. This school isn't all that good or bad its right in the middle. I don't recommend sending your child here. First, the student here do not respect the teachers in class. They talk back to the teachers, they use inappropriate language in class. Second, many students do not complete/do their work. Many students don't care about the work we do in class and would rather talk or play on their phones.Lastly, bullying is a huge problem in this school. A lot of people start fights in this school. Some boys pick on other people and bug them. However, there is a good side to this school. The teachers are very caring, they try very hard to teach us what is right and they never give up on you. Unfortunately, that is all i can say about the positive side. Again, i don't recommend sending your child here but it is your choice weather or not you want to send you child here .

This is one of the worst schools in all of Jefferson County. I say this as someone who has worked education in west Denver for the past four years. Bullying is outrageous, teachers choose to ignore countless discipline issues, and the principal takes the cake for self-absorption and negligence. This school almost shut down three years ago due to related issues like these, but a decision was made to put a Boys & Girls Club inside the facility, which is hands down one of the only redeeming factors of this troubled middle school. Don't send your kid here,

I know the principal is trying, but seriously? They shouldn't be focusing on giving hour long after school detentions to students for being tardy. Instead, focus on the bullying, drugs, or so called gangs some students are trying to form. There are some great teachers who deserve recognition. The principal just needs to redirect their focus and look for the problem elsewhere. It does not lie within those who have been trying but make mistakes every once in a while, but those who don't care about their education and have no respect for the staff or school whatsoever.

Bullying is out of control, I know of three students this year that were forced to leave because of safety issues. One was attacked and the staff was warned of the pending attack and failed to respond. The new principal is trying very hard to put a stop to all of it but it seems as if he is the only one. My child has been bullied in class while teachers were watched and did nothing.

I did not feel that my daughter was safe at this school. There were problems with the students pushing each other infront of cars and throwing rocks at each other after school. There was a great deal of theft that happend in the classrooms. I liked the teachers and felt that they were making an effort, but not enough was done.
