    O'Connell is an excellent school my son has matured and grown academically thanks to the supportive principal Scott Nozik and the well rounded teaching staff. O'Connell has a given him the opportunity to recognize the potential he has within himself and his ability to perform well as a student. Not to mention the great communication the school has given me as a parent. Submitted by Tracy Brown
