The middle school does a fine job of educating their students. They strive to meet every student at their level and put programs in place to improve student achievement. The school builds a strong sense of community and works hard to hire teachers who are professional and well-educated.

District worries more about sports, band, etc than educating the students. Odessa school district has not met standards on the map test for 3 years blames free, reduced, IEP students instead of the staff not teaching, the school board allowing new sports complex instead of computers, etc.
