Ontario Middle School
Amount of homework: Don't know

Because the principal the school policies and rules I found no point in keeping my eldest son there. Three minutes between classes is impossible.

The students have a strict dress code. And as for grit from its teachers I would say none. For there is no one on one time between the teachers and the individual student.

The new Ontario Oregon Middle School cost us $36- million dollars as of three years ago thanks to the latest school bond. No student dares to spray paint or tag any of its walls. As for respect between students how can there be with just a half hour lunch and three minute breaks between classes?

Ms. Wilson, our son's homeroom class teacher first presented that she cared. However, the compliments to our son's folder received just the same amount of compliments. This teacher did not pull strings or care about excusing her student, our son, from his tardies. (Again there are only 3-minute breaks between classes.) And, of course, our son was still denied lunch.

The Ontario, Oregon, USA Middle School is more like a prison. The teachers cram the curriculum in their small allotted yearly calendar. There is no time for personalized help for their students.

If you have a choice don't go to the OMS! *The students are given only "3 minutes" between classes. *After "2" tardies" they deny lunch! The students only source for their certified "t-shirts" are only found at one local store. The shirt with the logos cost $20 apiece. *Students are not allowed to wear (or bring to school) coats. *All students are required to wait outside all buildings (regardless of weather) before the school day begins. *The school's intercom BLARES out the message of the day. "For those unlucky few whom had the same experience while in prison." *The school principal is unwilling to yield to doctors advice or care about parents and guardians concerns. *There is only one police officer on campus and he usually stays in his office close to the principal. There are many parents whom complain about the Oregon Middle School, and this officer is there only to mainly protect those in the office and the principal herself! *Again, this is not a school. Its a prison with the latest a multi-million dollar grant could provide.

We moved into this school district and my student has had a terrible time. It's very click-ish. The school is at least 70% Hispanic and most of them are related to each other, or has grown up together. The students and teachers are not welcoming to out-sliders. There is at least one middle school teacher that is a huge bully. She makes fun of my disabled daughter in front of other students. This is a terrible school and school district. I encourage people that are new to the area to choose the Idaho side of the Border. Avoid this School!
