    Opelika Middle School is hands-down the best school I've ever attended and I say this honestly. They teach us to be respectful intelligent and trustworthy. We learn more than science history reading english and math. We learn how to suceed even if we do come from difficult backgrounds. As a new student you are quickly accepted. No one leaves you out on your first day either... I love Opelika Middle School!

    Opelika staff cares about me. They helped me out of a difficult situation. No one can even begin to prove this false.

    'Opening Mind to Success' is a big joke!! They do not care about the students or how the parents feel when it comes to your childs educational needs.

    Ken Burton is one of the best administrators in East Alabama.He is fair to his teachers students and leads by example. He is a leader that know curriculum and inspires his faculty by trusting them to be good teachers while gently leading them to have a great school.
