My son attended last year and was very well prepared for this year academically in another state. However, principal does not return phone calls (after 4 requests while my son attended, I still have never spoken to him). I signed up as a volunteer and was never called for anything. Took 2 followup calls to donate to the fundraiser. Some teachers are outstanding, but others are below standard. Do not expect administration to help or speak to you. Do not expect below standard teachers to communicate at all. The outstanding teachers are truly worth attending this school. My son had two friends who transferred to Osceola from Howard. Talk to parents before deciding. There are many good parents affiliated with this school, but participation is not encouraged.

My son's teachers are caring and dedicated but the classroom is old with old supplies, tools, flooring, appliances, etc. and they need new technology.

This school is a nice establishment. I have attended there for three years and I'd have to say the current principal has a clue of whats happening. He is also the principal of Eight street elementary. This school has wonderful teachers and amazing learning opportunities all tide together with it's nice teachers and excellent campus

I love Osceola! It's an amazing school! I have just one more year at Osceola and I'm so sad! The school has made a huge impact on my life and there is no words or actions to discribe how much they mean to me. I haven't had one teacher I didn't like. They are all so nice and kind! Some are a little more strict than others but they are all very fare. I love the curriculum as well. I have never dreaded a day going to Osceola Middle. I can't believe how fast middle school is going though. I don't know what I would do without Osceola. Even after I leave, Osceola will forever be with me in my heart. Thank you Osceola for EVERYTHING you have done and continuing to do! I love you OMS!

The quality of education has slipped in the last few years at Osceola Middle. The current principal doesn't have a clue on curriculum or what to do for kids at the higher achievement level of learning. They keep lowering the standards at this school and cut out electives. For middle school in this county, Howard Middle is far superior as they have the Magnet program that offers electives such as foreign languages, advanced math etc for those at the higher end of the spectrum

this school is awsome!-the teachers are a little strict but you learn what you need to learn. Advanced classes go a little faster than usual classes but if someone needs help the teachers are willing to slow down a bit-all you have to do is ask!

Osceola provides a good environment for middle schoolers living in the area. It has an open campus and the current principal is involved and proactive. The curriculum for all middle schools is Ocala is standardized, so you get the same thing at all public middle schools. However, I have observed that there are more 'engaged students here

My daughter entered the seventh grade mid-year. I am impressed with the structure of the school. Students are motivated to perform academically, it is wonderful. The students are involved in many community activities as well giving back something to the environment around them. I would like to see more languages for the children since this is critical to develop a well-rounded adult. However, overall, I am very impressed with the school.

Osceola is an excellent school they have very high standards for the kids and they encourage academic success. There is some limitations on music and art programs but they have a great sports club. There is a great amount of parent involvment in the school.

Osceola is a decent middle school to attend in Marion County. Some of the teachers can be a little difficult but compared to other schools I've seen in this area this one is alright. They do not have a chorus or any type of classical music involvment. There is an art class that your child can take as well as a business class. The parent involvement is pretty low. Parents never know what is happening at school unless they constantly aggravate the teachers. When I went there, the school had a different principal so I can't say what the new one would be like. The quality of academic programs is sort of in between. I had only one teacher who even considered taking us on field trips. I learned a lot from her but not much from my other teachers.
