You might find newer and more eye-appealing schools in Las Vegas but you will NEVER find a middle school with more dedicated teachers and an administrative staff that really carts about the kids who attend here. The principal is a whirlwind who seems like he is never goes home. A great person to have for everyone to look up to. I am so glad that my daughter had the chance to go to Orr and interact with lots of different kids. PS: The parents really care also. The attendance at after-school events is fantastic.

I think this school is horribal!Im a 6th grader and I saw a bed bug in 3 of the class rooms! So many people go home every day cause of lice and they are always sick! The kids here are very jugmental and there are a lot of bullies! Teachers barliey teach you any thing and boys are very gross and they have very bad manners! I would recommend this school to nobody! It is very inapropriate!

I love the diversity of our school. It's great to work with kids from all over the world. We also have some of the hardest working teachers in the district. They are willing to teach after school and on Saturdays to help raise achievement scores and give the kids a safe and non-threatening learning environment. They truly do whatever it takes to help the kids.

It's me again. Vanessa A. I'm aout to say Orr is getting better with it's technology and teachers. It's almost close to field day. The day where most students get to have their own learn-free day. Which is fantastic! Orr has privileges many other schools around clark county do not have. Teacher's have prepared student's for the Iowa CRT Testing. And we have already done them. Many students have attended the days. So they get to go to feild day. YAY! Well I surely needed to write a new review on my favorite school ever. Love, A 7th Grade Student, Vanessa A. Attending Orr Middle School. =]

Orr is fantasic school. The teacher are super. They make me feel at home there. And their methods of teaching and perparing for the CRT'sare incrediable. They reward their students so well. Most the students there look very pleased to be there.

Many people look at Orr and say what an old delapidated place with noisy students. If you bother to go inside you will find great kids that really want and strive to learn. You will find the most dedicated teachers and staff in the state who dispite low salaries, always try to help their students to achieve better results. You will find an administrative staff led by a great and caring principal who spend hours after school helping the kids. And you will find parents attending after school events and games even after a hard days work. No, Orr is not a perfect school but I am really glad and proud that I am a parent of an Orr student.

While the overall record of safety and incidents for Orr MS might be below average within CCSD, It has been my experience that individual safety and especially that of children who have been the 'victim' of an afterschool battery is alarming treated with a total lack of any aggressive effort to minimize or prevent future incidents of this nature.

orr M.S. is the best school, they do everything to help us learn in fun ways. Thos old rumors about Orr is so not true. All my friends say 'gurrl, i thot orr was bad, but it isnt...it's the best!!!' Mr. Leavens, the principle, is very nice and caring. He buys stuff for us like Smart boards and we also have laptops. Right now I am a 7th grader, and my name is Vanessa A. I can say that orr is the best of the best and actually mean it.

My child attends Orr and is both a gifted and special education student. His teachers have challenged and excited him wit his schoolwork. This can be difficult to do with very gifted children. The teacher-to-parent communication is excellent. I hear when my son is having a problem and as well as when something especially good has happened. My son, who has been bullied in the past, fells very safe at school. He does not participate in extracurricular activities, but loves the family night events the school sponsors. The principal is always there talking to parents and encouraging the kids. The teachers are available after school for homework help. I am very pleased with the quality of personnel and genuine caring demonstrated throughout the school.

Well at this present time I have two children attending this school, and I must say that they both have improved a lot in their vocabulary, they have better self esteem, and are so much more aware of what kind of goals they would like to achieve and what kind of career they would like to have when they graduate from school. Although it is hard for me to really attend their school meetings and meet with teachers because they live with their father and I'm way out here in CA, I do really appreciate the fact that you have this type of web sight so that I can inform myself with what ever is going on in the school. I would just like to say that you are all doing an extremely fantastic job with the kids and school and I really do hope you keep it up.

It is a good school. It is very seldom to see any fights, but in any school there fights. They say there are gangs, but I never see any yet. The princible always bike around and you are wacth all the time. I fell safe there. I'm a 6th grader, but know one can tell you are. If your little you'll belnd right in. If your kid comes to this school I thingk he/she will realy like it.

Im a student at OMS and I love it there. The teachers are all nice there. We have alot of school spirit. Our band class rocks, and our basketball team is one of the best. Even after school theres things to do. You can get homework from any teacher,or even retake a test. The staff rocks and the principal always takes part in all the spirit days. If you get the chance, you have to go to this school.
