This school is great, they teach you that discipline is definitely a must to succeed in this world. The IB program is what sets your student apart from other students when they go to college. Also the musicals are always amazing.

This school is a joke. The IB program is not a real IB, rigorous program. It is IB in name only. They don't even take the IB exams! It is a complete sham. Administrators are much more concerned about becoming friends with the children rather than actually disciplining them. The school as a whole is incredibly dysfunctional and only a matter of time before anyone with any intelligence removes their child from the school and it is left suffering like the other schools in the district.

My child got an excellent education at Obama--totally prepared him for serious college work. Obama has a fabulously dedicated core of IB teachers who have worked together for years (when school was Schenley). The teachers have genuine respect for the students and challenge them to achieve college-level standards. I am so grateful to them for their expertise and dedication. The school has a welcoming family feel--no snarky cliques--real room for kids to be themselves and grow into young adulthood with strong support from their fellow students and teachers.
