Excellant school. The teachers are amazing, compassinate, caring, and so helpful. This will be my older sons 2nd year at OVMS. My youngest son will start 6th grade this year at OVMS. Looking forward in seeing what their 6th grade program has to offer.

I love my school and I came here as a new student last year, first day of the second quarter, and they made me feel welcome. I was happy and I made the year with straight A's.
