This is my daughter senior year. The pass year has been a amazing journey. The school counselor has been on top of her job from day one. She's very kind and loving to everyone.
She seems to love her job and she cares about the students. As a parent contact was on point by phone calls, texts and email. Over all this has been a wonderful year. I would refer parents to send their kids to Bethune Bowman Middle high school. Great teachers n other staff members. Small setting.

OCSD 5 really try to give their students the best resources possible. Because of low funds, resources of today’s time can not be used by the students. This puts a hold on their skill and knowledge to progress like the highly funded schools. The teachers try to make the best of their “limited” supplies given. Without proper funding, they are reaching below the standard; giving the students the disadvantage. The students are not prepared for college and constantly show this with poor test scores and academic failure.
In this district, we are guranteed the right to receiving an education. They offer many classes in the district serving pre-k thru 12 grade courses. I’ve been under the district since pre-k and i’m glad to know all that I know because of the level of education given at OCSD5 schools.
