Grateful to: Teacher

Colleagues at Odyssey teach because they are teachers. There are pockets of collaboration within the building where great ideas and encouragement are shared.

Teacher effectiveness: Effective

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: Just right

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

Develops grit: Disagree

To be very honest, persistence in any aspect is not a strength. Good teachers come and go - a few stay. Occasionally a teacher will really make a difference for a group of students. The main objective is to test well and maintain an image that is not completely consistent with the reality behind closed doors.

Develops respect: Agree

Students wear uniforms, and depending upon who is in charge of teacher training on any given year, are often taught to walk quietly through the building. Students are responsible for tidying up the classroom at the end of the day. Again, one of the issues with such high turnover is that the school culture slips away once established.


Odyssey Charter School
Develops empathy: Neutral

Odyssey is a Title 1 school, which means there is a significant low income population. This demographic benefits from relationships with teachers that cannot be formed or maintained due to the class size and teacher turnover.

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

Odyssey Charter School 3

Posted July 13, 2016
- a teacher
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.

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

Odyssey Charter School 5

Posted January 30, 2016
- a parent
My daughter had a wonderful time while enrolled in this school. She was very happy to learn, and the teachers and staff paid as much attention to her emotional and physical well-being in addition to her education. My daughter was SO excited to go to school in the morning and would come home excited to share the knowledge she acquired at home with us every night. One of the best schools that I have come across in a long time, and everyone was attentive and receptive to the needs and educational goals of our family.
