I would have give the school 5 starts, but they've made a decision to change principals last year. Mrs. Armstrong is no longer a principal of the school, instead they hired someone who has NO BACKGROUND in education and no experience with children. I am sure he is trying to do his best, but I am afraid
... Read more that its not good enough for the position he is in. I also noticed that school enrollment had dropped from when Mrs. Armstrong was the principal. This cannot be good for school's financial health. I hope they can get Mrs. Armstrong back somehow, because ever since she left the school is losing ground with a lot of other parents I spoke to. As far as the teachers go, very good, very dedicated people who seem to care deeply about the children in their charge. After school program is GREAT, they require that children do their homework before being allowed to play, this is real school, not babysitting. The kids are generally nice, polite and non aggressive and staff is caring, responsive to parents, and children's needs always come first. Read less

Highly recommended alternative to PS 206; small and generally good school, but with small budget & inconsistent standards of academics and teacher professionalism throughout grade levels. We feel OLA has lowered standards in some cases to keep seats filled and tuition checks flowing in. A 6th & 7th grade
... Read more teacher didn t like our son and the feeling was mutual. Problem persisted into 7th grade (with the exception of Mr. Arra, a wonderful, world-class math & science teacher). Certain teachers dissatisfaction with our son s attitude negatively influenced how they rated his academic performance. We can t afford this when competition to get into the top high schools is so cutthroat. After 7+ years and $35,000 investment in OLA and our son s education, we no longer felt that we were getting a sufficient return on our investment. Nor did we feel, when we brought this matter to the principal s and teachers attention, that the (new) principal regards parents as the shareholders, investors, and customers that they are. Therefore, we removed our son from OLA in mid-7th grade and transferred him to Junior High School 157. He has adjusted well and we are all glad to have made the change. Read less
