The teachers are horrible. It's like a jail cell, you get suspended if you miss one assignment. I can't wait for my kids to get out of this school. My daughters math teacher screams at kids and makes them cry. I've had to call him 6 times this year and the principle doesn't do anything about the problems my daughters had with him.

This school seems safe. It's not hard for kids to be happy there. The teachers are nice. The kids seem tolerant. It's cool to get good grades. Some classes are pretty boring but kids still like most of the teachers. Longer classes this year don't seem too great. Eighth graders in French or Spanish get no study hall 1/2 the year. They can't do things like chorus and sometimes there's no time for homework if they do a sport. So a lot of kids don't take a language. There's good special ed even for serious disabilities. There's an alpine ski team and a Nordic ski team. Math is good. The new art teacher seems good. There's a new PTO.

The school has not been very challenging for bright students, but in math it is possible to do advanced work at different levels. A new principal who started in 2009 is making changes. Parents were not asked for input or told about the changes. Teachers have said the number of teachers and classes has been reduced for budget reasons; some teachers have been shifted to new grades; there will be one language-arts class in each grade instead of separate reading and writing; classes will have more students and last longer; the 8th-grade social studies teacher, who presents a slanted view of current events and pushes right-wing ideology in class, will stay.

I love the school. My kids enjoy their day there. I only have one remcommendation. I'd like to see the teachers go through training seminars on how best to actually 'talk' to the kids. I'm in the school all the time and I can't stand the disrespect and tone I hear come out of their mouths. Not all of course, just a select few. My philosophy is very simple. If you don't like your job, then move on.

I love Molly Ockett and it is a wonderful school, but sometimes, the teachers don't pay enough attention to their students. They need to give the smarter kids more attention, and the not as bright kids more too. The rules for the school are very strict, and they are too concerned about the children's safety! I love the school, my son attends it, but it needs some work! I have decided to give the reting an average, because you really don't deserve any higher, or lower. I hope you take my recommendations seriously.

I had 2 children go through and 2 still there. I HATE this school!!! Larry Gervais is the only teacher there who seems to care about these kids. He is always fair but firm and holds them responsible for their actions without being unfair, unrealistic, uptight or mean. The rest of them, (esp. the principal and vice principal) need to stop trying to be politically correct and start trying to be teachers! In other words... open your eyes and get a clue!

I had one child go through this school and two more that will in a few years. Luckily the oldest is a good student and did fairly well academically, but I was not impressed with the curriculum. I believe the teachers had too many students to be able to have any time for the individuals who need help. I am not looking forward to my next round at this school with my other 2 children.

There is a very limited academic program. The teachers don't take students who show the ability to do what there trying to teach a seperate lesson. The principal is an unfair person who doesn't listen to both sides of the story.The parents try not to get involved to stay away from the principal. As for the art program there is a lack of art supplys, the students aren't trusted with materials, and they squash creativity. there is a lack of space.There are not enough desks or lockers.They don't teach to the best of their abilities. Students complain but the teachers all give excuses. The school has laptops but they are more of a burden. They constantly break ,you have to carry them around and when they break you lose all your work and the teachers don't let you redo it. that is my opinion on this suject. It wont change.

Thank goodness I only went there for 8th grade. I hated it. The principal was a dictator and the teachers squash creativity.
