Open Quote OMS leadership lacks simple connections with the community; for example, they will not let the bookstore in town know what is on the required reading list so that adequate stock can be made available for students, despite requests from parents and the bookstore. There seemed to be challenges with the quality of some of the teachers, but hopefully this is on the mend. I do not feel that there is enough homework given to students; in fact, I can't recall my child having homework while there! A bit more studying could possibly improve test scores and better prepare students for high school and college.

Of course, good sports opportunities exist. The coaches have been working to develop non-football sports.

This could be an excellent school with a few changes. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
