Odyssey is a great school! Teachers are very nice and there are no gangs and no violence. Odyssey is very strict about dress code and school rules, they aren't like other schools that pretend there are no rules. The staff are very kind and have a positive attitude.

Odyssey Middle school has been such a great experience for my grandkids. Lots of attention and hands on with the kids in school to make it a more enjoyable classroom setting. The teachers are very involved in making sure all the kids get the same quality education no matter what. In today's time we need these teachers to be almost like second parents and I totally feel very confident that my grandkids are in the best of hands.

The gang activity is on the raise and it would be shame if they don't get the control on this which involves only a hand full of students, but I have witnessed how this can grow exponentially and destroy the whole school and in result the community where we live in.

i was a seventh grader here at odyssey, but now moving on to lake nona for eight grade. i think this is a wonderful school, in a great district. but i would say its just a little to scrit in some ways. and that it needs to create more social gatherings for us, the students!! but overall its a great school! A shoutout to mrs. hollis from the gladiators team in seventh grade well miss you!

There is only word to describe odyssey middle school and that is amazing! my son achieved so much success because of school s ever so caring teachers. They love their students, work with them everyday, are highly certified. Numerous clubs as well as sports to choose from based on your child s personal interests, and put a smile on their faces everyday. Also, countless events take place everyday such as drama plays, chorus and band concerts, parent facuilty meetings, reading/math family nights, and so much more. You will love getting to know mrs.Painter, mr.Sosa, mr.Danner, and mr.Townsend, who strive everyday to teach the students the meaning of hard work. Safety is always enforced. It is no doubt a school where educational excellence is a reality. You will not regret sending your child to odyssey middle school, thank you odyssey!

My son is currently a 7th grader at this middle school. This school has been great in keeping me informed on my child's progress. At all times I know what is going on with his academics. There is great encouragement on the school's part for children to participate in extracurricular activities. My experience with this school has been nothing but positive.

This is an excellent school. Coming from a NY district, where there was total mayhem and chaos, this is a very stable evironment. Yes, some complain about lack of transportation for extra curricular activities, but that is all over Florida, not just here. There is plenty for the students to do during the school day and after school. The teachers are very committed and the school has a very strict regiment. I love the fact that with K12 I can check everyday my child's assignments, school work, completed works and grades. This is an excellent school and I am sorry that my child is in his last year here.

My daugther started in this school in the second semester, and our experience in base on that matter. Because in some classes they don't help the kids to be at the same level that the others kids are, for example, a lot of kids came from other countries and the ESOL programas is not enough, every school had to be a program to help this kids so they can be at the same level at others,because not all schools are theaching the same thing. My daughter is an A's student and she is having problmes with math and she can't take tutoring,because the school don't have tranportation at that hours and we have only one car at home,so it's imposible for us right know to get her at school for tutoring, and her teacher is not helping too much with her gaps. But besides that this school are great and the teachers are very proffesional.

Only about 1 out of every 3 teachers accually care about the students and most of the work that happens at this school is just filler work to take up time. Don't expect to get very many grades back due to the teachers being 'to overwhelmed' or only grading one home work assaingment a week but giving the students 4 assignments. Over all rating: C

Very week academic level. Lots of students can't even read at a 6th grade level and the school makes no efforts to improve. So many people that can't even speak english that there is a need for a translator. Most of the work is just filler. Don't expect to get many grades back because the teachers just dont care. The only good that I have seen in that school has been taken away in the 3 or 4 years that it has been open. I feel that there is no effort put forth for the childs education.

I believe Odyssey in Orange County Florida is a good school. I believe it could be a much better school if they had foreign language classes. Although many students are bilingual that does not mean all students are.

Best Principle in Orange County. Mr Bernier and his staff put children first. They give the children an environment that is safe to enjoy learning. Each team of teachers works hard to do everything in their power to give students the tools they need to become great adults. Thanks for making middle school a great growing and learning experience not only with book smarts but also with world smarts.

I'm very pleased with Odyssey Middle School I have a child that attends this school since 6th grade and he's been in the Principal's list since he is on 7th grade now. He likes his teachers, the teachers at Odyssey are very competent and amicable. The discipline in Odyssey is very strictly and I like that. It gives me peace of mind when I send my child to schoo knowing that he will be safe.Thanks to the great administrators that the school has. Odyssey is a great school ia an 'A' school too.
