I've taught here for five years and I every day I LOVE getting up and going in to spend the day in my classroom in this remarkable school. Our administration/leadership is so supportive and empowering of us as classroom teachers that we are able to get our jobs done effectively and lovingly year after year. They have navigated us through some truly horrendous state and federal mandates. They encourage and maintain a positive environment in which the teachers and students can flourish and everyone is recognized as a lifelong learner.

This is a great school. My 3rd grader has been here since kindergarten, and we've loved all the teachers and staff that we've worked with. The principals seem to set a good tone and are very involved with the kids - working the car rider line, greeting them as they arrive for evening or weekend activities, etc...

Our children just transferred here from out of state and we all love it here. The teachers have been wonderful as well as the administrators. My children have made some wonderful friends it seems and have not once come home complaining about a mean incident. I have no problem with all of the fundraisers, schools these days seem to be getting less and less money so if I can help

IF THIS REVIEW MAKES IT TO POST I WILL BE SHOCKED! IT SEEMS THEY HAVE TEACHERS WRITING REVIEWS! SO......IF YOU HAVE AN ESE CHILD YOU SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THE FOCUS WILL NOT BE ON YOUR CHILD. THIS SCHOOLS MAIN INTREST IS ON PARENTS THAT CAN FUNDRAISE OR BROWN NOSE THE HIGHER UPS. I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE ESE PARENTS TO CONSIDER ANOTHER DISTRICT THAT CARES AND HAS MORE RESOURCES TO OFFER. YOUR CHILD WILL BE SEPERATE FROM THE GROUP. THIS SCHOOL IS NOT UNITED. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE ME THEN GO AND EXPERIENCE FOR YOURSELF BUT JUST KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU WERE WARNED!

My son attended OBE from first-fifth, and my daughter started K there and is currently in third. Overall, we have had a great experience. OBE has a lot of parent and community involvement, and the atmosphere is very welcoming. I have been pleased with the academics and relationships with most of the teachers. Interaction with the principal has been a bit spotty. My son has special needs and that road was a bit bumpy from time to time - not a lot of focus on special needs kids.

Oriole Beach really is the greatest place to be. The teachers and staff are so wonderful. They love the children and the children definitely love them back. My children go to school with big smiles on their faces each day and come home with all kinds of fun stories about how their day went. I love this school!!!

My children attended an escambia county school before coming to obe and we could not be happier with our decision. This school rocks. The principal and vp are awesome and always around interacting with the kids and parents and the teachers are the best ever!

There is a core group of teachers at this school that are excellent in both their teaching ability and their dedication to their school community. They put in extra time, keep open communication with parents, stay involved with 'extra curricular' activities that help support the students and the school and just go above and beyond what is required by the job description. This is what makes Oriole Beach a great school. The rest of the teachers are well trained and seem more than capable to handle the challenge of educating the students of today. It would be nice to see more emphasis on making the students technologically adept but that would probably require more training of the current staff. Still, I am very happy with my children's experiences at Oriole Beach. Congratulations to all faculty, staff and administration on the Blue Ribbon!

This school is great for my 5th grader, who is a fast pace learner. But, I can tell you, if you have a child who has a learning curve and does not learn at the same pace as average children, you can hang it up. Oriole Beach is not the place for your child. Teaching is at one pace only, they seem to think all these children are 25 and can remember everything. The time is not given to those children who so desperately need and want to learn.

Not one negative thing, teachers are great, principal and assistant principal are Christians, and family people. I worked here, worked one on one with them. It's not numbers 'A school' that counts, it's the grown-ups they are making, and it shows.

As a parent and also a volunteer, I can tell you firsthand that these teachers care about their students (at least the ones my kids have had)and are dedicated professionals. Many times I drive by the school on weekends and see my son's kindergarten teacher's car there. She always makes things such fun and exciting so the kids want to be there. All personnel seems caring and concerned with the students' total well being. Mr. Charlie is a saint! The expectations are high but teachers help the children achieve the highest level possible by working with them in a variety of ways. Much praise to this shining example of what public school can be.

I am the grandparent of a 4th grader at OBE. My grandson has done very well at this school and the faculty seems to care a great deal about the children enrolled. Family involvement is what makes a great school and OBE has that. Linda Stapleton
