    I appreciate all the teachers and staff at this school. They have helped my child excel where other schools did not help.

    My son entered 6th grade at this school he'll be starting 8th grade here in the fall. In the past 2 years his grades have gone from rock bottom to sailing! He's improved 110% participates in band and hasn't given it up. He's taking band again this year. I LOVE this school!! They've helped him learn and grow in SO many ways!!

    I think this is a awesome Middle school I especially love several teachers there the orchestra teacher (Mr.Caldwell) a 6th grade block teacher (She's VERY special) and.....I guess all the block teachers are really amazing. ) I love this school

    an occasional helpful teacher but principal and viceprincipal are the worst ever bullying refuses to be dealt with they are critcal and degrading to students if i could remove my kid now i would.....

  • (3 years ago)

    worst middle school i've ever seen bullying goes undealt with no care by administration to handle a situation never had so much trouble at a school as this one...interrogation style techniques used to bully students into saying what they want...this does not produce effective or happy students if i could remove my child i would!

    this is a good school their band is amazing and they have a lot of great teachers.

    I love this school so much! Our orchestra is really amazing thanks to Mr. Caldwell. We play a lot of awesome songs such as Star Wars Indiana Jones Jurasstic Park etc. And whenever there is a problem the students and parents are told about it right away. And the WEB program is also really cool because 8th graders get to meet new 6th graders and they tour them around and plan events.

    The orchestra program is very solid at OV Mr. Caldwell is a n excellent conductor. There is also Honors Language Arts and Social Studies and Geometry is available in 8th Grade go Mrs. Chu!

    I have many things to say in regards to the earlier coments i think this scool is great they have gotten new staff sense 2007 and i believe that this school is great...sure they have kids with drugs but they are aware of this and have special programs to set them on the right track as for the fact that 6th graders can't play sports i just want everyone to know that in the whole district the 6th graders can't play sports so it's no OV's fault.All in all i believe OV is a great school and really gets us parents involved!

    This is a really great school. I just finished all 3 years here and never had a big problem with the teachers or staff. They are all (the ones i had at lest) really great teachers.

  • (7 years ago)

    The safety here is absolutely incredible and remarkable! I strongly encourage sending your kid to OV if you want a safe welcoming friendly environment. Lots of my teachers are supportive and helpful!

    This had been our first full year at Olympic View Middle School and I must say not a shabby one at that. My daughter (7th grade) had a tough time at first meeting some 'nice' girls to hangout with in the beginning but it worked out in the end. She is an honor student and has really enjoyed learning from all her teachers. She has received many 'Ship Awards' through the year. She has also participated in some of the school sports program which was a great experience. Mrs. Nuttbrock is awesome! So I would have to say that we are very pleased with the our first full year at Olympic View Middle School. Thank you to the staff at OV keep up the good work!

    I absolutely love OV and i don't want to leave for high school next year! Mrs. Weatherbie you are awesome!

    I'm an 8th grader at Olympic View this year and I am horrified to see the other reviews from parents within the last three years. I guess some children didnt have a good time at our school. But now we have made major improvments. We have a drug counselor for those that are getting into that around their communities. We have started a Lunch Bunch and After-School Pirate Success Program that has kids that dont do their homework assigned to. I personally havent had a very good experience with it but they opened a debate club made for this topic of disscussion. We have a VERY good band program. We won perfect 1st places in my 6th grade year and got either 1st or 2nd place in my 7th grade year.Im looking forward to the big Spokane trip this year.

    OV is a good school but I disagree with some things I believe that all grades should be able to do sports. I currently attend OV and I am in 8th grade. I like all my teachers like for 6th grade my favorite teachers were Mr. Offringa Ms. Ivelia and Mrs. Perry and in 7th grade my favorite teachers were Mrs. Morris and Mr. Weatherbie and for 8th grade my favorite teachers are Mr.Von Mr. Brynelson and Ms. Torgeson. They have wonerful teachers here and I really enjoy it. Overall O.v. is a awesome school. - Emily Ross

    I'm currently attending Olympic View as an eighth grader. I really like this school the majority of the teachers are very approachable and treat me and my fellow peers as individuals and not just part of their job to get money. The music programs are amazing. Orchestra is a lot of fun and our band is outstanding! I disagree with the review that said that OV is 'dirty.' The campus is clean and gives you a welcoming feeling. I also feel this school really welcomes the sixth graders. The WEB program is a positive way for the sixth graders to click with some of the eighth graders. Overall I love this school and am going to be extremely sad when I have to leave.

    my child has attended two years at this school. I find the quality of staff and teachers to be excellent. School and student safety extremely top priority. Overall an excellent safe enviroment for student learning .

    OVMS does not recognize student accomplishements however it does give monthly recognition to students who have not had detention. Their bar is set too low! Science 'fair' consisted of groups of 4 students reading a powerpoint presentation to their parents. Band concentrates primarily on being largest marching band -not quality music. Parents complained when superintendant denied 'field trip' to Disneyland. Not a school district for high achievers!
