Awesome school. Great and fun teachers and staff. I went to this school for 2yrs and The Dr.Samore and Ms. Rusch are amazing people! Wish we could have lockers and wear jackets but other than that I never had any bullying so that's good. Il

The staff at this school are friendly, educated and patient with the students. The administrators remember you. The programs are excellent. The food is reportedly well, kids don't like anything.

Wondering why a school would have lockers with no intention of letting kids use them. Instead have kids carry a book bag fool of books. My daughter was asked to leave her bag unattended. When she returned money was missing from her bag, which I had to replaced because it was for a school fund raiser. A little bullying but was handle promptly after I went to school to complain.

I feel this school is very good except for the teacher communication.... My daughter did very well and Im happy with her hard work in advace classes and being in the ISA... the biggest problem I have is thatwe where told that our kids would get in the ISA if they attended a dual language program since Kindergarden and since my daughter is in it we thought my san would get in... this is not how it work so before you sign your kids up for the choice program, know that they will have to take an exam and may not get in this program... Im sad about this because my kids will have to go to 2 diffrent middle schools and my son wont be able to contine his spanish education. good luch

I'm a student at Okeeheelee and I think it's a wonderful school. The Spanish Academy program is great and I have improved on my Spanish since being there. The school is safe and the teachers are great, the discipline is taken very seriously and it is overall a great school. The principal could interact with the students more though.
