Terrific middle school – As the parent of a seventh-grade student in his second year at Odyssey, I am delighted with this gem of a school. Designed for gifted kids, Odyssey challenges and nurtures its students academically, artistically, athletically, emotionally, and socially. Odyssey inspires them through projects and experiences inside and outside of the classroom. Odyssey helps them to navigate the shoals of early adolescence. Odyssey produces well-rounded, curious, and energized students ready for high school, college, and life.
Our son continue to thrive at Odyssey Middle School – Our son continues to thrive at Odyssey Middle School during his second year.
I am impressed with so many aspects of the school. The expectations for the
students are high, and students are appropriately pushed to their limits. This
is all done in a high quality supportive, warm, and understanding environment.
Odyssey students are smart, polite, well-behaved, and will be future leaders.
Odyssey enhances the healthy growth of young adolescents as lifelong learners
who are ethical, good citizens, competent, self-sufficient and optimistic
about the future. At this age our son is undergoing rapid physical, social,
emotional, and moral changes. Odyssey is a safe and happy environment we
entrust with the healthy development and education of our son during these
crucial years of growth. The new head is unparalleled, and the teachers and
staff are wonderful. Our son loves going to Odyssey everyday.
Small classes, big ideas, smart kids – Odyssey is a jewel of a middle school: located in a wooded area, the education is hands on and integrated into real world issues and events. Kids read Shakespeare, Michael Pollen, study Japanese, dissect pigs and do public service projects. The school is tiny; it's almost like having private tutors for your child. The expectations are high. If your child is bored in elementary school, check out Odyssey.
