    I am worried about my childrens safety at Ortiz they have to many want to be gang members as worried parents we tried to report a incident involving our child being bullied and threated by 7 other kids saying they will jump my child but the principal only sent those kids home for a day and we felt that does not resolve anything and now they are calling my child a snitch we went back to speak to the principal about this issue and she treated us very rudely saying she does not have time for this and has a school to run.I feel she does not care about these childrens safety and now are only option is to go report this to the school board to seek help.

    I think this school is a very good school. its clean and the students are very nice. the teachers are well involved in what the kids are doing and treat them as if they were there own. i think that ortiz is a good school but some people may think its not because of the amount of students. ortiz middle school is also very over populated and under funded.

    ortiz middle school is a really great school.the teachers are really involved in the students learning and if thet are going to sucess in life.academic programs and classes are really good.they make them do stuff instead of just walking in the gym 20 times.ortiz's teachers taught my child responsibilty matureity and leadreship.they respect the students as if they were a god or something.they will dicipline them like taking gifts the teachers give them(ex.taking a brake eating in class working on or off the table goodies the teacher brings them).this school is the best school ever.i would give this school a 10 on a rating graph.
