I attempted to contact the principal several times by leaving several voice mails on his direct line. No response. Called the secretary directly and left my name and number. She stated that she would give my message to the principal as soon as he returned to the office. Supposedly he was away from his desk. Had a friend call, who happens to be Caucasian, he answered her call by way of secretary immediately. I've shared this experience with several others. There seems to be similarities in our experiences and race.
Love It!!!! My daughter made a very easy transition from elementary to middle school and love the programs that are in place moving forward. The staffing and teachers are quick to responding to any questions and principal is aswsome.
I'm a 8th grader here at olms and I have to say I love this school. The teachers love and care for all the students the staff is great. I love the many programs this school has. I'm very sad to say that this is my last year at olms
There are no advanced programs for gifted children except in math. Smart students are never challenged and can get good grades without putting forth any effort. It does not prepare students for future academic challenges and there are many exclusive cliques that make shy students feel lonely.
I graduated OLMS in June 2009. As mentioned below, it is indeed a school with diversity. How well a student does depends a lot on the student. OLMS has great learning oppurtunities, most teachers teach really well and the content is in-depth and good. Teachers attempt to enforce hard work on the students, but after a certain point it is totally up to the student. If you take complete charge of your academics and strive to excel, you will find that OLMS is not really hard. However, it prepares you greatly for high school. If you take advantage of all the good oppurtunities in OLMS, high school is going to be very easy.
