  • i am now graduating from Ocala. I dont know why some people dont like Ocala but i love Ocala. There are understanding teachers like Mr.Williams, Mr. Weiler, Mr. Lewis, Ms. Mammen, Ms. Lopes, Ms.Bustamante. I can name alot more. Im glad i went to Ocala. Yes Ocala is strict but that is to help us. They dont want us getting shot from wearing red or blue. Come on people use your head to why there are rules.

  • I've had my two sons attend Ocala Middle School and now I have a granddaughter attending this school. She seems to like it. She's involved in sports and is keeping her grades up.
    I like the new technical systems they have at the school. The internet access that the students have is amazing. You can't fail with the kind of teachers and equipment at this school. Unless you yourself don't really care. The only obstacle would be yourself. Applying yourself and the support of the teachers and technical equipment there's no telling how far you can advance yourself. The opportunity is there students. At your disposal, be smart, use it.

  • I really don't recommend this school for anybody that is trying to get away from gang related violence..when i used to go to ocala during 7th grade there was a teacher who would constantly cry just because she couldn't handle her students..how do i know?..well i was in her class..and during 8th grade like in 2007 there was a math teacher who would always welcome me with chocolates and look down my shirt..i told the principle's and they thought i was lying..how could i lie of something so big like that..after that i never went to school and didn't graduate it really sucks that they couldn't handle my situation otherwise i'd be almost graduating from highschool THANKS ALOT!!!!And its true some teachers arent that undestanding..All the memories i have of that school is bad..mostly everyone i know think the same as me..even my mom and aunt who used to go there when they were young..DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!
