We love this school and the staff!

This is horrible: the staff are rude, the classroom has 38 kids in a class room. Some teacher talk on a microphone so the children in the back can hear them, there are too many children for the teacher to teach.My son be there for 5 years and hardly gets any home work.

Both of my children attended ORS their 4th and 5th grade years. The staff is excellent a d very involved. They did a great job preparing my kids for junior high. Parental involvement could be somewhat better, but I understand it's hard with work schedules. I would highly recommend ORS to anybody considering this school for their child.

My son attended 4th and 5th grade at Old River. This fall my daughter will be doing her last year as a 5th grader. The teachers and staff including the principal Ms. Robbins and the Vice principal Ms. Velasco are very involved with the day to day activities of students. As a parent you feel like they genuinely care about every child. It's an awesome school. My kids have benefited a lot from attending.
