Our kids are doing well here. We have never had a problem with any of the teachers, except the insurmountable amount of homework that comes home. We are also are considered "uninvolved" parents as explained in last post. Since we both work full time we cannot attend 3pm meetings and would have to ...  Read more

Onahan is a great school. There is a real sense of community among parents. I have had issues and the administration worked with me to resolve them. my older kids were very well prepared for HS honors classes and HS athletics after graduating and my younger one loves classes and her teachers. The biggest ...  Read more

principal is terrible. she cannot mange this large school. If you like 33-35 kids in the class, disorganization, yelling and monotonous homework, you will like it here.

I was a student at Onahan, I loved every minute i spent at the school until 7th grade. The teachers were unbelievably dedicated and friendly. The 7th and 8th grade teachers however need some work.

I'd like to start off by saying that no school is perfect. Onahan certainly had its flaws, but it was a second home to me throughout the years. I knew almost everyone there, and almost everyone knew me as well. As a former Onahan student, I thoroughly believe that what you put in is what you get out. ...  Read more

This school needs new leadership/principal/LSC. Very clicky here. School communication needs improvement. Office can sometimes be rude and abrupt with parents. Curriculum is good, but no change from my oldest to my youngest child. Not enough time spent on actual writing skills in 3rd and 4th grade. ...  Read more

I attended Onahan for 4th and 5th grade and unfortunately had to transfer shortly thereafter. I noticed when I enrolled into the next school, I was ahead of my class and my vocabulary was much more vast. This school was very diverse and well rounded.
