The middle school is hardly innovative or competitive. After 6 years we decided to leave. In fact, 15 5th grader's and both teachers left as well. The K/1 loop is strong with fantastic teachers but its strength declines after that . Let's just say 4 years ago, the 6th grader's had 13 different teachers for math, following year, they went thru 3, and last year 4 or 5!!! This year, they hired a long term sub after the new teacher last after 2 months! The admin can't seem to get their footing in hiring and the ED was improperly hired. A former board member with NO elementary or middle school experience. The job before this she was a Stella and Dot seller. Tupperware basically. It's so sad as the school used to be exceptional. Though better than most public elementary schools by far, as a middle school parent, staying would've been a huge disservice.

If you're looking for a school that lives by its creed of empowering, educating, and informing its students, you should take a close look at OCS. We have only been here for one year, but so far have found that they really do "walk the walk." My daughter's classroom runs like a small-scale democracy; the students actively participate in their lessons, and make real decisions about what and how they will do things. All teachers, paraeducators, and administrators are on a first-name basis, and, in a small(ish) school with reasonable student-teacher ratios, every classroom really does feel like it's own micro community. We feel very fortunate to have been accepted, and plan to be here for years to come.
This was once a place of magic! They really valued their mission and fought to keep the school based on those concepts. Sadly, with poor leadership, we are more traditional now. The things that made us special are slowly disappearing. There are some great features to the school though. We have a great campus and a good teachers. (When they were all happy, they were creative and inspiring!)
