    OPS is truly a one of a kind school with dedicated teachers and students who require and largely do receive individualized education. The teachers and support staff spend countless extra hours trying how to make these elementary/middle schools years at OPS the very best. There's great emphasis on helping these kids learn how to interact with their peers and adults in appropriate fashions. Regardless of the difficulties a student comes to OPS with the staff will do everything in their power to help the child. And the teachers do really love the kids.

    This school is awesome! We should have moved my son here years ago. Small classes great instruction positive behavior support. The teachers are wonderful. For the first time ever there is actually a school staff trained in how to help kids function on a day to day basis. Other schools suspend them to not deal with the issue. The teachers are top notch and love their kids. The kids thrive in such a positive environment.
