Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

Some teachers are fabulous and really enjoy teaching kids. Too many are incompetent and a few are dangerously incompetent.

Too much is covered up. Kids do not learn from their mistakes if there is no consistency.

Some do but it is not the culture of the school. Beautiful school with an ugly heart.

Too many shenanigans go on that are swept under the rug. Emphasis on athletics and the popular kids.

Terrible school. Poor leadership. Does the Principal ever leave his office? Teachers are ok but with very little innovation.

Honors classes are excellent and challenging. College prep classes are still dull and boring with the less talented teachers. Now career track students are programmed into these classes and have even weakened them further.

The penultimate word to describe the atmosphere at the Owen J. Roberts High School is spectacular. Owen J. Roberts has provided me the opportunity to matriculate to a top tier world university. The high school's academic programs are outstanding and interesting. Students at Owen J. Roberts are generally highly motivated, and the school supplements this motivation by supplying students with a passionate teaching staff, and a pretty campus with great facilities. It is BETTER than private education. Honestly I have witnessed more peers matriculate to top schools out of OJR than ANY of the local private schools.

You reap what you sow. College prep classes are typically dull and filled with apathetic students. That said, the school offers an excellent advanced tract. Students can begin taking AP classes as early as 10th grade. The atmosphere in these classes are completely different. The students show interest and the teachers interact with the students. The class size is also much smaller. I have 3 AP courses this year where the class size ranges from 11 to 14 students. The administration is very intent on fostering a sense of community and increasing the degree of communication. The new Student Council has engaged in talks with administrators and succeeded in addressing student complaints. The district does place a little too much emphasis on the PSSAs, but it doesn't hinder actual learning. We had multiple students accepted to Ivy's last year.
