    Provides a great learning atomsphere. The teachers provide good feedback to the parents. I have had two children in this school and proud of the Alief school District for maintaining the high academic standards for their schools.

    My son went to O'Donnell and he is doing good. He improved acedemicly and he was motivated to increase his knowledge. I think this was a great opportunity for my son.

    Due to hurricane katrina my family was displaced. Thanks to o'donnell middle school for opening up their door to my son it has been one of the best experiences he has encounter he's a 7th grade from new orleans who was struggling with keeping up in the beginning but now have it all packed down. The teacher and staff there are wonderful kind and very welcoming that's why I'm taking my time to say 'thanks a million.' My son is doing great and I want you all to know we're not going anywhere! Again thank you all very much.

    A grat school but I think you should give the students more free dress day. For my opinion Is better if you led the students wear under shirts that are school color wich are blue red and white. Thank You
