I went to school here in the early and mid 80's. I was bullied, and a number of teachers contributed to it by making fun of me or giving me gooney looks in front of other students. Pretty unprofessional and quite pathetic that an adult that should know better would make fun of an insecure pre-teen kid. I originally listed names, but they deleted my review. Ironic that I'm censored but the teachers are protected and get away scot free with their actions.

I am a student just coming out of OMS, and heading to high school. The staff is AMAZING. We also have excellent extra-curricular activities, especially our speech and drama. The teachers are excellent except for 1 or 2. The reason I give a four is because some of the other kids can be mean, and more often than not they get away with it. However, when they do catch it, they punish them harshly, which I think is good, since they deserve it.

I am an Ockerman student and I agree with everything that the bad comments have to say. The students use curse words on a daily basis and the teachers are just as bad if not worse. I've heard at least 20 different curse words each day since I've been at this school. They also have a raging bullying problem that the adminstration doesn't handle properly, if at all.

The worse school I have ever seen in a decent area. The teachers are low lifes that tell the kids they dont care if they suceed or if they go outside to smoke. These teachers all have issues. They even tell the kids about family problems that they have, instead of teaching. They dont take the time to hear the kids out and they have lost my kids work many times. The leadership is just as poor! They really do NOT CARE!

I have had children in this school for four years. The principal and teachers have been wonderful. No school is perfect, but my children are above average students who felt challenged and valued as people while at this school. We have been happy to be a part of this school.

My child feels that this school spends too much time and money worshiping the sports people and not enough the academic people. My kid works her butt off with speech and drama and they don't get any attiton and they dont get reconzied. My kid also has friends in the band and they are made fun. The books in the library are old and out dated.

Ockerman middle school use to be one of the top schools in the county. At this time I can't wait for my son to move on to the high school. I have found that the teachers seem to just not care. I wish the teachers would learn how to use STI the proper way and in a timely fashion it is hard to help your child if you are unable to see grades. I wish I could say that the last 3 years has been a good experience but I am unable to do so.

'I am a very upset student with Ockerman, because all ockerman does is take it's best students to the top and leaves all the others all on there own not trying to give them a full potentual chance to suceed. Ockerman takes no action to take care of it's bullied kids and all teachers do is ignore it, completely. There is no structure what so ever in this school. All that madder to Ockerman is it's basketball, Cheerleading, and achadimic team members. Everyone else is just a student that doesn't matter.

I feel as if Ockerman Middle School, was an excellent school. I used to attend Private School up until the 5th grade, so I can truthfully say that I received an excellent education! It was also rated one of the best schools in Kentucky! I believe that most of the teachers did an excellent job, but some of them didn't. If nothing else, send your child to Ockerman, their 7th or 8th grade year; that's when the great learning really begins. I don't have much to say about 6th grade, since I struggled too much, however I am thankful anyway. I would say that the safety is excellent, but their discipline is un called for! I just wish that schools would be strict like they used to be. However, I highly reccomend this school!

My son went to Ockerman through the 8th grade. He participated in sports and is now on the Boone High School Junior Varsity team. I liked the educational and extra curricular activities made available to him.

I have had two children attend Ockerman Middle. I feel if you have a child that dosent need much attention Ockerman Middle is fine, but if your child needs help with Math or Science in the 7th or 8th grades you need to seek out tutoring or possibly if you can afford it private schooling.
