Bullying is outrageous, teachers choose to ignore countless discipline issues, and the principal takes the cake for self-absorption and negligence. This ...  Read more

I know the principal is trying, but seriously? They shouldn't be focusing on giving hour long after school detentions to students for being tardy. Instead, focus on the bullying, drugs, or so called gangs some students are trying to form. There are some great teachers who deserve recognition. The principal ...  Read more

Most of my son's teachers at O'Connell would send progress reports via email, and the school's website was a great help in checking his assignments. I also liked being able to access his grades, attendance, etc online. His teachers seemed very interested in his success.
