Very Poor sense of security at this school. no use of locker, no backpacks, what has happened here for crying out loud! and there is no organization when picking the kids up from school whatsoever. Principal talks about excellence but he's lacking laot of it

I am a teacher at O'Banion and I feel I must respond to this review. I'm sorry for Ms Fuller's experience. I would want all of our parents to know that we are working hard for our O'Banion students to reach 'Destination Excellence.' Like many teachers, I care for our students and will do all that ...  Read more
