I think the IB MYP is great at OMMN. This is a great way for kids to learn and apply what they learn to real life. OMMN has a new principal this year who is wonderful! I'm also amazed with how many of the teachers go above and beyond with their involvement in the extracurricular activities the school has to offer. I feel most of the teachers there love their jib and their students and truly want to do what's best for them. My daughter will graduate from OMMN this year, but my son will be starting there next year. We're looking forward to seeing what other great changes the new principal will make.
My experience with my daughter going to OMMN has not been perfect, but when there is an issue I address it right away with the staff and they take care of it. I like it because my kid is exposed to all different people. Also they take action when someone is acting up. And they recognize the kids that r doing good!!
Wonderful socio-economic diversity with teachers who truly care and a staff (especially the IB Coordinator and the Principal) focused on the overall well being of each student attending. Best kept secret. My child attends through the magnet prgm (not our home school) and it's absolutely worth the distance!!! I simply don't understand why OMMN is ranked as a 6 out of 10. Makes no sense to me.
This excellent school is an authorized IB MYP World School with a economically and racially diverse student body, along with a SUPURB teaching and administrative staff. The overall atmosphere here is academic, creative, and eclectic, where all students are encouraged to achieve and reach their full potential. Students are divided into smaller "teams" within each grade which allow a smaller group to circulate with their team mates between their team teachers, thus allowing teachers to get to know their students well as individuals. Teachers are caring, and open to communicating and working with parents. Course material is IB--interesting & international in scope--how many schools teach Chinese and Cricket? Bravo OMMN, officially trying to get the word out: you're doing a GREAT JOB--keep up the good work!! Glad to be a part of this school.
I have had 2 grandchildren in Old Mill and one struggled to get good grades. The teacher was always there for him, stayed to tutor and e-mailed to give tips to help him study, investigated what he needed and AVID helped him tremendously to help him realize he can go to college. He is a very good student now and works hard. His sister is an honor roll student and the teachers have helped her to relax. She is selft motivated and an avid reader and writer. The teachers have helped her to relax and enjoy fun activities and recognize her needs. They are alway there and available whatever the children need. i have seen some very disturbing incidents parents not showing up and the administrators have stayed to be there for the children left behind. Teachers jobs are not easy but the teaches at OMMN put so much time and effort in their school. They are a pleasure to know.
Awesome teachers, superb counselors, staff the goes above and beyond their job description. Concerned about my child's overall development. Not just that she get good grades. In terms of grades, my daughter has been taught to 'think' through a question not just memorize an answer. That's one of the skills that OMMN teaches that so many other middle schools dont teach. It is such and important skill to teach children before they reach high school.
