Ocoee Middle School. This is the best school in the district. No you do not have to be an athlete to attend. I played football on my 8th grade year and still noticed no difference in the curriculum I was taught. I highly recommend this school

Oms is such a wonderful school with excellent, caring, and attentive teachers! I've had nothing but a wonderful experience. They also have wonderful athletic programs that young children can become apart of. We have been nothing but pleased with the wrestling program/coaches and all the great qualities they bring out in our young children. We highly recommend this school!

OMS has as many Pros as Cons but none of the Cons are due to a lack of heart, excellent teaching, or academic offererings. Teachers at this school are very attentive to the academic objectives set forth by the state and national Departments of Education. Paired with that are the massive hearts of love and concern shown for each and every child that comes through the school. Honestly, there are bullying problems, however, the school administration and teachers have an excellent bullying prevention program in place to help with this. The bottom line is that children can be very sneaky and although every parent would like to think their child is incapable of teasing, being rude to, or even hitting another child, that is most often just not the case. Children have got to learn to stand up for what is right, regardless of what others are doing around them. One teacher can not possible monitor halls, classroom, bathrooms, etc...all at one time or catch every act of aggression. OMS has top-notch academics, top quality teachers, and a principal with vision. If you want your child to do well in this school, or any other for that matter, you must first teach them to handle adversity.

I currently go to OMS and I would NOT recommend anyone to go to this school I am currently bullied every day my mom and Mammaw Has both gone to the principal and nothing was done. I got sent to the hospital from this one girl and they were not going to do anything until we mentioned the trip to the hospital. If your son or daughter is prepared to get bullied then send them here to OMS!

Overall it is an excellent school. As with any school you are going to encounter problem with faculty and administrators, but most problems I encountered were easily worked out. The new additions to the school have certainly brought the school up to date. The main flaw of this school is the lack of outside academic and physical opportunities for students. Your child should enjoy going here, but in some aspects may be unprepared for High School.

The teachers don't keep up with there onine curriculums. Had much difficulty getting teachers to correspond via email. Most test seem to be open book and if the student does not do well the first time they get to take it again. The pay way too much attention to the state test scores instead of giving attention to the students on their regular studies

We moved here from Florida and I was very worried about peer presure on my daughter being the new kid stinks. I have to say the kids were very welcoming to her and she made friends fast. She doesn't play any sports and she is in no clubs and she never has problems with anyone, so I don't understand the comments before mine. Anywho If I could complain about anything, it would be that a lot of the kids misbehave, act rowdy and immature, that's what my kids say anyway. Other than that, I have had no problems with the staff or teachers, seems like a laid back environment, which is why we moved to TN in the first place.

It is all about the sports and money .Far too much peer presure! Not only by the peers but also bye a lot of the adults teachers etc. There are serious inadequcies in the grading process for some teachers. And I think it is too much to have 6th graders have formals at least twice a year. It is expensive and not all the kids feel they are able to go to the dance/ cost is too high and they are embarrassed if they do not have hair,nails done and a limo. They feel left out! what happend to good old blue jean dances in the middle school? Too much so some kids cannot go! Also, cannot ever find the principal takes months for a return call, bye then I forgot what I called for.Very dissapointing. I would not send her there again.

OMS may be a good school if your child is an athlete. My son is very studious, makes straight A's in every subject, but has no interest in sports. He always loved school until he started OMS, now he is picked on by other students, verbally abused, & made fun of. He dreads school every day, where he used to look forward to it. His dad & I have had to intervene once already, & my son tried telling a teacher he was being picked on, but she felt that since it was verbal & not physical abuse, it didn't warrant her attention. Sorry, but I can't speak well of OMS & the influence it has had on my son.

OMS is a wonderful school. My son was very shy before he started middle school this year he has just blossmed. He started running cross-country, playing football,and singing in choir. He feels like he is part of something important and he Loves it.

Both of my children went through OMS. Both had very good experiences. I felt that I could talk to the administration and the teachers were excellent. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a good quality education.

I feel that over all oms is a good school. But only if your child is involved in sports. If your child is on the basketball team, football team or is a cheerleader they get the education you send them there for,otherwise they don't fit in. I know because I had one in sports and one that is not and it is amazing the difference in how my two children are responded to by the teachers at this school. I am planning on sending all of my children to a private christian school next year.

OMS all in all is a great school. Although I do feel that the dress code is too strict and it is hard to buy school clothes for this dress code especially when you have other children in school. I think they should be just a little less strict. I also feel that the teachers and staff should have to abide by the same exact dress code.

This is an excellent school. My daughter was in 6th grade this past year. She absolutly loved this her teachers. It offers a variety of related arts classes in addition to core classes. Excellent learning environment. I highly recommend this school.

Most of the teachers at this school are okay. This school gets very little funding. The class rooms are getting very old which makes for a difficult learning environment. This school seems to be centered around sports other than academics. The students are not treated fairly. I would not reccomend this school.

I pulled my son after the 2nd grading period. A few of the teachers could not keep up with turned in work or record grades. Later it would be recorded as a Zero. We would have to hunt down the original paper to prove their error. It was complete chaos. Each time I was given excuses or out & out lies. He had a B average or above for 4 years until OMS. I have since enrolled him in another school where not only is he maintaining a B/or above average..He is doing so in the advanced classes. While I'm sure there are some good teachers at OMS..our experience was horrible! I don't recommend this school to anyone who has college plans or interests other than Sports.

My daughter currently attends this school and my son also attended this school. I have been very pleased by the teachers and the principal at this school. Mr. Winters is excellent and very involved with his students. I feel they offer great programs and a great enviroment for the children.

I went to this school when it was a different name and it has changed a lot. It was a good school then and I think it is a better school now. My son is in the 7th grade there and he really enjoys his teachers and his classes, and you don't see that very often. I hope they will keep up the good work, and Mr. Winters is a good and fair principal.
