    The administration of OES has no controll over our son's teacher who is intimidating strict. And she wonders why he doesn't learn as quickly as other children in the classroom.

    Everything is more than the sum of it's parts. What a wonderful school. Reflective of staff ability empathy expertise on and on.... All filtering from top down & back up. I have had 2 grandsons pass through this school and both have grown so much. I am truly grateful to say that their passage through has been a very positive experience in so many ways. There is an air of peace control leadership and so many aspects of teaching in so many positive forms. Thank you OES.

    As grand parents to two boys who have attended Odenville (Elem & Int) we have seen remarkable growth in these boys which is a tribute to the principals and staff for recognizing them as individuals have endeavoured to enrich them along with patience understanding and superb skills. The atmoshere one experiences in these schools is one of quiet confidence. We have experienced Birmingham & Trussville schools and they do not have a patch on Odenville schools. A really true tribute to all and we cannot thank you enough for what you have done for these boys not only for their character & personality growth but for educating them and providing an environment for all the many facets of learning. Many many thanks. 5 stars +.

    Our grandsons have attended Odenville Elementary one is now in the intermediate school this school system is ranked number 1 with us it is just outstanding. Our grandkids have been in the Trussville and Birmingham school system and they do not even compare to the Odenville schools. I just wanted to thank the principle and all persons that work in the system you do a great job everyday our sincere thanks to you. It is a great feeling to know that the children are put first and each child is accepted by their own personality and can feel proud to be who they are. Again GREAT JOB TO ALL THE STAFF!
