This school is the worst school! Do your children a favor and take them somewhere else. My child was lost once and reported absent once while she was their. The panic of where my child was was crazy and their solution to the concern of her safety was telling me to go someplace else. The office staff are unfriendly. the principle excuse for everything is overpopulation and budget cuts. This is mainly a low income school and because of that you get a superior attitude from staff. As far as my experience with teachers one was awful and one was great although the good one was not available all year long.

PSO is GREAT! I was hesitant as I grew up in Vancouver and am a die hard Evergreen schools fan. Out home when we moved here from out of state was on the border and in the Vancouver district. No boundary exception as evergreen was not taking any new students. We went to PSO. My son has a great teacher, MR. Gunn! He has done a wonderful job of making my sons transition a smooth one! Thank you! I have come to learn that new and shiny doesn't always mean better!

PSO has been by far the best school that my children have attended. I love the all day Kindergarten, and my son advanced tremdendously, only with the help of his awesome teacher! He was reading by the middle of the school year, and improved his writing and coloring. I now have all of my children there, and love it! Everyone there is kind, and loving! =)

Is the worse school experience my daughter has had in her short time in school. Lack of childs interest and we will not be returning for the follwing year. We came from another school around Thanksgiving time. The teacher was great but had to go on maternity leave. From there it went down hill. I found that the school staff must have to many children and have been in the system to long and are burned out. Remember it is about the children and not treating them with a lack of interest. I will not state names as I feel that is not fair, as I believe those who I am mentioning will know for themselves. Once again to the few that gave forth effort, thank you. For those who have grown tired, shame on you. This school does not offer the best.

I have had 5 children under Mr. Smith, principal from kindergarten through grade 5. I have watched him and interacted with him and he is the best principal I have ever had; the school and children have a piece of his heart. He has become extended family to his school community. He stands outside in the mornings until the bell rings and all children are safely in class. He stands outside in the afternoon until all children have been safely picked up. That means a lot to me as a parent because in this day and age of predators it is very dangerous. He is also at every extracurricular activity and I feel he has gone above and beyond the duties of a principal. He and his staff know students and families by name and they are greeted warmly. I would highly recommend this K-5 school to anyone.

I feel blessed that we found Ogden when we moved here from out of state. My children quickly settled in thanks to teachers and administration. I am so impressed with Ogden that I even chose to transport my children each day when we moved out of the boundaries. Teachers and staff are very supportive of ALL accomplishments, even of those outside their classrooms. My only wish is for more parent involvement so that more can see first hand the great environment that Ogden sparks.

Our family has been very happy with this school. We have had 4 children go to PSO and been very happy. The kids have learned and grown tremendously. The staff is wonderful and very caring and supportive. Parents are encouraged to be involved and are kept well informed. Kids are treated fairly and with respect.

My children attended this school and I finally had enough. The school was the POOREST example of quality public education. They could be the poster school for what NOT to be like. And I would advise anyone to look into alternative forms of educating their children. Any problems presented were dismissed and I was told I was a 'disruption' in my children's educational process. So much for parental involvement. They lost my kids twice, there was a major problem with illness and lice and fights, and everyone was very rude and non caring. I asked about getting a different classroom and was told no. I asked about a different school and was told no. My child became so worried about not upsetting the teacher and making her mad and having her scream at him that he would do things the teacher would prefer, undermining me, even at home. The list goes on. There is so much negative that I cannot have the time to convey it all here. It was a nightmare.
