This school now includes 6th grade. Many teachers will constantly ignore bullying and children. many times teachers lose their temper and are constantly yelling and giving children in-school-suspention. But they offer good academics and a after school program that helps with catching up. It offers many sports and even a ski-club. It has a overall good academics program but not the best staff.

seems to be favoritism with in the district. children will make mistakes and learn by them. they are not given chances once the mistake has been made, you need to be a 'relieable source with a higher income to get the help you need.

I feel that the middle school is very harsh and unreasonable in it's disciplinary system. Here children like my son and his friends cannot even horseplay before the actual school day begins without being sent to the office by referral. The test scores for this school are 51% in both math and english. OSMS does not teach them enough math (in depth) or give them enough homework in these two areas, also OSMS does not give enough essays or papers or even biograpies to write in either grade. Overall I think this school could use alot of work on there teaching curriculumn and for the most part the teachers are very good and knowledgable at what they teach.
