OMS is not only being watched by the people of Florida. People around the world are interested in learning more about the school and its achievements. Most recently, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and Holt, Rinehart and Winston joined together to provide seventh grade students at OMS with Tablet-PCs and an interactive online e-Learning curriculum. Student progress will be monitored to see how students benefit from around-the-clock fingertip access to their learning resources.

Although the technological presence at OMS is impressive, the school should be applauded most for its dedication to student achievement. According to Principal Katherine Clark, academic achievement is our primary mission at Ocoee Middle School. “We use technology to meet the needs of our diverse learners,” she said. “I believe that e-Learning will be the key to unlocking the potential of every student.”
OMS has earned an “A” school grade for the past two years, and students and staff are already working hard to master the Sunshine State Standards and earn another “A” this year.
