I have two children at Omni and find that they are learning well. There are some excellent teachers, but some that really should not be teaching. Extra consideration should be taken when hiring and when they are in the position. Perhaps anonymous reviews help. The campus should be a bit cleaner, especially the bathrooms. The staff have always been friendly and helpful.
I have two children currently taking civics class with Ms. Mayton and she is an unbelievable teacher. It is an academically challenging class, and my children are not only learning a lot, but also learning study skills that can be applied for all classes. Both my kids really like her, she is very caring and fun and knows how to be strict when needed. Thanks Ms. Mayton!!
I was impressed at the Orientation ... but in the end ... they talked the talk, but did not walk the walk. Had one teacher who was very communicative, but the others were difficult to deal with. Many did not use the Edline - making follow up very difficult. One particular math teacher was so incredibly rude, and had a huge class full of extra studies students every single day - how could all the kids be struggling? Tried working with the Guidance counselor, but overall found that for a good kid, with great manners - who is no bother ... they just fly under their radar and do not get help. We lasted one semester, kids were too out there, language was foul, it was a bad experience .

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.
