This is my sons first and LAST year at this school. The bullying and fighting is out of control, and the staff gives off a very bad attitude as if they're only there for a check. There are no challenging programs, and two of my sons teachers are still training because they have never taught at a middle ...  Read more

I'm sorry but it seems to me that the PARENTS of the rotten eggs should be interviewed & screened then DENIED the opportunity to bring their kids here. The Staff....well it's a revolving door of some (not all) careless paycheck seekers.

HORRIBLE school! This is my daughters first & last year here, I have seen a dramatic change in her since starting this school. I'm so sad she had to go here & thats ONLY because it's our home school and no other magnet's had openings. She did get in the honor magnet classes but is not challenging and ...  Read more

I understand that new leadership has its issues but come on. There's a kid threatening to harm himself and others here and the school is doing nothing. The first threat was back in December, another in February, another in March, and from what my son is saying....pretty much everyday. He's obviously ...  Read more

OWMS has had its ups and downs over the past years. Some want to attribute this to the change in leadership, teachers, budget, and students. It is all very true. When the interim principal was present, OWMS began to get its "light" back and staff was working together and a lot happier. Now, that it's ...  Read more

My son is in his second year at Orville Wright. There are some good teachers and because the new students that enrolled is less, the 6th graders had no choice, but to be put in the Magnet area. The bulling is a problem, which is really sad. I'm hoping that the principal does the job that we pay him ...  Read more

My daughter attended Orville Wright for all of her Middle School years. She excelled with all the wonderful teachers here and was told continually during her high school parent conferences, whoever taught the group of students who were from OW did a great job as her current teachers are able to move ...  Read more

My son is being challenged with academics and projects in his 7th grade high honor classes and was recognized for a 4.0 at the honor role assembly this past Thursday. All of the teachers took the time to discuss my son's growth during parent conferences and you can e-mail the teachers anytime. I have ...  Read more

Orville Wright is in a sorry state. They continue to lose students and it is hard to see how they are going to keep it open for more than another year. They only give lip service to their anti-bullying campaign. My son was punched in the face by another boy in the classroom and he did not strike back. ...  Read more

This school is horrible. Apparently, the principal has told the teachers on the first meeting of the semester that he was glad that he was demoted from the District Office, so now he can "coast" and doesn't have to work hard. He certainly does not work hard and sees this job as little more than a paycheck. ...  Read more
