Really fun, very helpful, and a great part of my day! Hopefully many more can enjoy it.

I witnessed multiple teachers being extremely physically and verbally abusive towards various students when I attended this school. Almost all of who are still working at this school. I would be very concerned for students currently attending due to this and the rate of it bring covered up that I witnessed. The targeting of children who had troubled home lives... I would never feel safe sending a student here.

Excellent school. Three of our four children were OJHS graduates and continued on to SAHS before graduating and attending college. The teachers, administration and curriculum are top notch.

Where is the music department? We heard great things about it, only to find that almost nobody signs up for vocal music here. Our whole family sings, and we are considering a move to the other jr. high so that our kids have that opportunity.

Excellent School. The staff are helpful and friendly. They take time out of their schedule to help their students. Plus the laptops give the students a great opportunity to learn skills needed for the 21st century.

this school is the absolutely worst school in the stillwater district. The people are rude, uneducated and disrespectful. the teachers do not do their jobs either, they walk out of the classroom at random times and pile on way to much work.

This school has a unique 1-1 laptop technology assisted education program. It is one of four national demonstration sites for educational computing. Truly unique due to incredible commitment of staff and students working together. Excellent leadership at this school.
