Odyssey has been such a wonderful opportunity for my son. After trying our local school for two years (which is supposedly the best elementary in the town) we entered the lottery for Odyssey and got in. Our dissatisfaction with our local school was the best thing that has happened academically, Odyssey has been such a great fit. Class sizes and truly engaged teachers and staff really make this a great learning environment.

This school has been fantastic for our kids. The high level of education and community values are so superior to regular neighborhood school. I would highly recommend!!

I have a child with Asthma and severe multiple food allergies. His teachers are not only careful about the food but also his emotional needs when it comes to discussing about food around him.He is happy and we feel he is in safe hands.Not to forget wonderful nurses they have.

Ability grouping of students ?. Some serious safety concerns have come up ! Including but limited to an ambulance being called. Academic and Behavior issues within the classroom not addressed seriously or effectivly.

My daughter has been going here since the beginning of Kindergarden. I disagree that there is no parent involvement. Parets come in all the time and help with the programs. They should make it mandatory that if a parent does not help out the child can not attend. My daughter has improved so much with the teachers help.

I have had 3 children at this school. One of my kids graduated this past June. Because of the small class size teachers are able to communicate better with the students. When my oldest child was in middle school Odyssey wasn't around. What a diference the student is held more responsible for their class work. The 5th and 6th graders are to have their planners signed by their parent and the teachers check the planner. The school is very involved with the students and familys through many activities. A couple of years back a family went through a very tough time and the school was able to help out the family in various ways I can't say enough about this school other than it's great.

I have two children at this school and I feel it was a great alternative to the public school system in our town ,the class size is wonerful for your child if they need extra help and every teacher knows your child name . We may not have the highest test scores but what we do have you'll never find in public school that is a sense of pride ,the children here at ocs always go one step further,with the community outreach programs or as a peer mediator.I feel my children have excelled far greater here at ocs than any other school. The teachers are great with the childern and they all respect each other, and with that the staff works harder and so do the kids
