Hello, I am very disappointed in Nicholas Orem Middle School. My children has come home several times and told me there is no lunch left for them or other kids, they have been given spoiled food, the teachers not having paper or the teacher is either picking on the student or just being plain spiteful with the students. I have heard of several racist incidents. I have heard of constant fights and security is not even all that and when a student requests help from a teacher as though the teacher cannot be bothered. I understand that this school is mostly populated with minorities but they also deserve a chance. I would have never enrolled my kids in that school. I have received several warnings from other parents pertaining to this, I can honestly say they were correct. Also, every time there is a field trip its almost always cancelled. There are good kids there and when they get their hopes up and get disappointed that is not good. Sincerely, A concerned parent.
