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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
