School Official Point of View

I have been a student at Odyssey, a teacher at Odyssey and now work behind the scenes in operations for Odyssey Charter School. I can say with utmost honesty that the school is highly functioning at every level. A-Rated education for children. Teachers that are driven by the mission and laser focused on educating the whole child. A support staff that is hard-working and dedicated to seamless operation. Odyssey clearly sets itself apart from the other surrounding public and charter schools by providing an environment extremely conducive to student achievement.

Best school I have ever worked. Extremely Student and Community-Centered. It makes sense that Odyssey is the Only "A" Rated school in Palm Bay (outperforming all local charter and public schools).

Odyssey has some of the highest performing teachers in the area and our turn over rate is low.

As a mastery based school, homework is used to check for student understanding and to help the teacher plan for quality instruction.

Global citizenship is a core value at our school. This is taught daily in the ways that we positively interact with our students and teach them how to positively interact with others and the environment.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Given such large class sizes, teachers perform well. They know exactly what is expected of them in terms of student success and are very clear on the importance of maintaining an image of academic excellence within the community.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Homework is thoughtfully assigned in general. This is a teacher decision, but administration supports reasonable assigning of work to be done at home.

Develops character: Neutral


- a
Student well being is often compromised by large class sizes and high teacher turn over, the result of which prevents progress in this area.




- a
The building was well planned and is beautifully maintained. The food is healthy and delicious. Class sizes are very large and can legally operate with 36 students per room. Teacher turnover is problematic in creating a sense of community for the children, often changing mid-year.



- a
Very mean, cruel, nasty teachers. They seem overworked or they just don't like teaching. Transferring.
