I have had the best years of my life here! Great teachers,and staff,and many activites. You always feel welcome and you feel safe and are able to talk to someone if you need to! I would recomend this school to everyone! Truely a great school!
I like the sports in this school. We are doing very well. Although we might have not scored that well on our academics tests, we are all trying to improve. It may be a while, but slowly and surley we will. The after school program H.E.L.P. has been a great help with may grades along with many other people that go.
Our daughter was promoted from this school this past spring. She had a wonderful experience academically and in the extracurricular areas. Some of the warmest and challenging teachers she has had worked at Ottawa Middle School. They were truly caring and experienced individuals in a middle school format. My wife and I were very involved in our daughter's education; however, I cannot say that for a majority of parents. The school has tried many things to get students to achieve better in the mathematics and reading areas. But, this has been a slow process. With a change in the administration this summer, a more positive and encouraging environment should occur. It is a school of excellence.
I am very excited to have my son enrolled as a 6th grade student at OMS. I try to attend events that he may or may not be involved in and have so far enjoyed them all. He is being afforded many different opportunities that he otherwise would not have been able to experience at the small rural school he attended K-5. I am very impressed with the administration that I have interacted with at this point. It seems to be a caring environment and the staff (teachers and admin.) have been helpful and courteous. I truly appreciate the after school program H.E.L.P. and extracurricular activities available to my student. What a GREAT experience at OMS. When I look back at what OMS was like when I was there (1982-1985) and compare it to now,I wish those opportunities would have been there then. Keep up the great work!
Great facilities and new building. Technology is up to date and new. The teachers are excellent but the administration is hard to work with. Overall a safe learning environment and great school.
The teachers at Ottawa Middle are wonderful. However the our experience there was not a pleasant one. The militant style behaviors of some of the admin. was totally unacceptable to our family.
