Offers anti-bullying programs, assemblies and "walks the talk" through a strong & consistent line-up of assistant principles & teachers who expect good student conduct & cultivate mutual respect between students & teachers, teachers & parents, parents & the community.
My daughter has had excellent teachers all 3 years at Omni who respond to parent email communication and concerns. In addition to solid academic subjects, Omni offers a variety of electives like Culinary Arts, Art classes, Band and DAILY Physical Education. The principle is organized and stands up for what is in the best interest of the school, students & families. Everyone can shine at Omni based on individual results and effort. No funny internal staff politics or power struggles dominate or overtake the primary mission of educating the children. Thank you, Omni Middle!
I have attended this school all three years and honestly have learned nothing from it. Most of the teachers talk about themselves, and waste your class time SPECIALLY the "Language Arts" or English teachers. This school is also a really hard school to start off as a new student mainly because its so obnoxiously packed with kids. Honestly, this school may be a 10 or an A++ school but I wouldn't recommend it, also this school is FULL of drugs (at least the years I attended which was from 2010-2013). Not just drugs, but because Boca is classified as a "rich" person city, this school is full of snobs that act "ghetto" and smoke to get attention. When it comes to bullying, I never got bullied but I've seen it happen, except if you're a 6th grader you have greater chances of getting bullied by an upperclassman. And if you don't wear nice clothes and you DONT have a jansport slim backpack or vans, you will also be bullied. Overall, this school was alright... But I would certainly NOT recommend it!
By far the worst school I've ever been to. Many people complain about bullying, when in reality, that is not the school's biggest problem! I spent a little over two years as a student at this school and I've seen unspeakable horrors. I came in as a straight A, well-behaved, honor student, but Omni really changed me. Of all the teachers I had, three were good, eight were awful, and the other few were neutral. The worst part about the staff is that they focus on nearly-harmless name calling or small arguments, ignoring the real issues. They turn a blind eye to major problems and try to hide them away, because the school's only interest is FCAT scores. So many kids get held back, so there are even some sixteen-year-olds there. The staff can be very disrespectful to parents and even more so to students. My parents regret the decision to let me attend Omni more than anything else they've ever done, and I can't say i blame them. We were attracted to the good ratings, but clearly that is not a reliable method of choosing a good school. Horrible, horrible school. Please spare yourself the trouble of putting yourself through the same awful experience that I went through.
Omni is a great school. My son is in seventh grade and is constantly challenged, especially in his math and English classes. The teachers have high expectations and do a great job in responding to my concerns.
I was very disappointed with this school. It enjoyed a good reputation, but the teachers did not do an effective job with my son. My son had the potential to excel and he fell through the cracks achieving below average performance. To make matters worse, the administration did nothing about it even after several conferences. I think that palm beach county needs to address the administration staffing on the future of this school.
I am very sad as to my child having to deal with all the bullying this school has. Staff is not to helpful. Teachers are sometimes unaware of what is going on in the classroom. The worst 2 years of my childs life was here at Omni! Too many kids and not enough awareness!
I chose this school zone due to the overall ratings. I am extremely disappointed in the teachers. Out of 6 teachers only 2 are good. The 4 that are lacking speak horribly to the students. One gives their personal opinion on ethnicity, religion and politics...As an educator shouldn't you stay neutral and just state the facts and let the students make their own decision? The staff in the student service department talk to the kids like they are lower than low. The 4 poor teachers I am speaking about also speak horribly to the students. How do you expect the students to be respectful when all of you teachers are acting like Neanderthals? Very disappointed in the educators and administration. Maybe they should take a course on social skills and courtesy.
