    I am not sure how this school can be as good as it is because the principal is incompetent. I think what saves the school is the fact that he doesn't have a clue what's going on!

    This school is AMAZING!! I actually have been doing a lot better in all my classes then I have in my other past schools the staff here is great and they would help you with anything that you needed help with. If your failing a class the staff members would do anything they could to help you pass the class and move into the next grade without having to go to summer school. ) I really like this school and recommend it for anybody looking for a good school for their kids to attend.

    This school is a really great school. I learned alot in this school and they really helped me move my learning levels up. And even from the small amount of time i spent here they were the best 2 years of my lifetime.

    O'leary is a great school that holds the students to high academic standards and still provides them with the support they need.
