  • My experience at ORMA was great. My brother attended ORMA from 1988-1994 and i attended from 1996-2002. All administrators have at least a BA. As the person posted before me, incidents will always occur at any school, including MILITARY SCHOOLS. No one was an angel including myself. I know of only one incident of ****** assault which included a staff member. The student was of legal age and was involved in a relationship with the staff member. Once word got out, he was fired/arrested. The student already graduated and that was the end of it. Drugs? What school has kids who don't do drugs? Do you not have a family member who has been in jail or done drugs? Drugs is a minor thing at ORMA along with drinking. Besides if you do either, you are dismissed from the school. The school commandant being aggressive? Well that means your son or daughter has been in trouble. You are at a military school, they are not going to just let you walk away if you decide to curse out a teacher, or hit someone, or steal something, or go AWOL. But let me ask, did your son or daughter come home with a black eye? NO, i didn't think so. Today, you cannot do anything without them calling home to mom or dad crying on the phone, saying how bad it is at ORMA or any military school. I love ORMA, had a great time there. The problem with people like the person who posted below is they do not know how to raise their child, so they send them to military school, but then want everything to be on their terms. ORMA is in good hands, its a great school, i have donated money in the past, i will continue. If you want to ask me a question sometime about life there as a student, feel free to email me: [email protected]
