If I could, I'd give this school 3 and a half stars. I am currently attending my second year at Ottoson. Some of the teachers are very great and nice and fair. Others should be fired. Unreasonable dress code (seriously, who has shorts that are past your finger tips when your arms are at your side?). ...  Read more

I honestly hate it her. There are lots of bullying here. The some teachers give you SO MUCH homework. When I get to much homework I get stressed out and cry...just saying. Teachers give you detention easily. I am getting pretty good grades but I still absolutely HATE it here.

This school is awful. I always dread each day of it. The teachers are unorganized, and just plain unfair. They throw detentions at you left and right for things that aren't your fault. They give undoable amounts of homework and they act like they hate you.

I personally think this is a good school. I am attending here and other than some bad teachers, I think it is an ideal middle school.

responding to the January 6th post: What was the point of that post? To show how you don't like Lakeview? To try to be all dramatic by giving hints on who you were? To make yourself feel better by saying that you're popular (you're not) and trying to act tough by threatening people who say OMS is a bad ...  Read more

Now I can't use ...  Read more

I have been to Ottoson two years ago. To be very honest the school in general is okay. My experience there was no so good. Being a target of bullying along with other kids. I had to lay low in fear of more bullying. As expected in any school there is some kind of bullying. But at ottoson there is a little ...  Read more

The teachers are out of control. It is a rogue middle school, and the teachers are attempting to run a reform-minded superintendent out of town.
