This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
This school could be awesome, but the Principal needs some help. There is a lack of support from parents. Mrs. Hanson is amazing, she is calm with the Kindergarten kids. Miss Haworth is a great new addition! I love volunteering as often as I can. I was excited at the beginning of the year, but now I desperately want to get my kids out of this school. My kids teachers are the only reason we stay and love school!!
The bad kids get rewarded when they do anything... they should be doing. The bullies get a little talk and a pat on the back as they say they will be good... until the next time. I'm sick of this behaviour system.
My son has been attending Oquirrh for three years now. I probably would not have had him stay if it wasn't for Mrs. Thurman. She has always met with me and worked with my son regarding issues with children bullying him. She is always willing to do what is necessary to protect our children and I know for a fact she doesn't leave most days until around 5. The teachers I have interacted with do the best with what they have available to them. Unfortunately Utah is behind compared to where we originally came from academically.
I would love to say this school is great but I can't. We are new to the area and are transfer students. I was hoping the principal, Many Thurman would be helpful, encourageable and kind like the other reviews stated but she was not. She seems annoyed, flustered and impatient with I asked reasonable questions. She was also very awkward when talking to my children. I voiced my concerns with other parents and they agreed that Principal Thurman is not approachable and lacks leadership skills. Meetings she holds are unorganized and she seems very uncomfortable in front of people. I have also heard that she had a difficult time working with teachers at the school. I am not impressed and am considering other options for my children.
The teachers we have were very nice and welcoming. I would say my children are bored. Utah's curriculum is behind the state we moved from.
