Open Quote I have worked at three different schools and ODB is BY FAR the best school I have ever worked at. I love everything about it: the leadership, teachers, students, parents. It is an amazing community that develops the whole scholar. The energy at the school is so positive. Close Quote

Open Quote omar d. blair is one of the most amazing school that a kid would want to go to.
parents i would recommend that your children should go to omar d. blair because the teachers there are fantastic at doing their jobs well. I went their last year it was the most spontaneous school i have ever gone to so parents register your kids in omar d. blair because who knows they might be something amazing in the future. to end this paragraph I must also tell parents how fabulous the students are in that school.when I stepped my foot in that school for the first I was so nervous like a big pumpkin that one of the student in the school came up to me and introduced herself to me saying Hi my name is selah gelinas and I responded back saying my name then she told welcome to omar d. blair and I said thanks and we headed of to our class for the rest of the day. so parents register your kids now or it will be to late to register your kids b/c the register sheet is full then so hurry up now.

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.
