If you are a student at OCS, you should know that you can speak to most teachers, our counseling options are great, AND you can always complete a "blue sheet". Let us know, and we will fix the bullying issue. You may also join our student council or petition to be one of our student representatives to our governing board.

Im not saying that this is a bad school, but I get bullied alot here. This school isnt the best. I know that other people say its great, thats only because the teachers put on a show for our guests.
