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.
OMMN is the best! As soon as you walk through those doors you feel welcome. I have one in 8th grade MYP and another in IB at OMHS whom also went here and both my kids have done very well. Their grades are fantastic, involved in activities, love school. This would not happen without the exceptional staff we have. The teachers go above and beyond, they know how to keep the kids involved and excited to learn. The administrative staff is seen throughout the school, interacting with the kids and if you have concerns they are quick to help. Great school!!
OMMMN has been a wonderful experience for my daughter. The MYP program has really focused my daughter in being the best... The teachers are very understanding and are willing to help your child succeed in everything they do!! The teachers are dedicated and take pride in their jobs... OMMN has really blossomed as a middle school!!!
I love OMMN because of the challenging MYP program that both of my daughters are enrolled in. I also love the outstanding staff: from the guidance counselor , the MYP coordinator, classroom teachers all the way up to the Principal.
