We love sharing positive comments from our students. Here are excerpts from essays four students wrote about their Ombudsman experience.

Jeffery Green“Mrs. Brown and my other teachers, Mrs. Hardy, Mrs. Sampley, and Mrs. Speed are the best teachers a student could have. They tell us right from wrong and they respect us. Since I’ve been here my grades are way better and I actually like doing my work. Any kids that need help getting back in school should come to Ombudsman!”

“Ombudsman is an excellent alternative route. I have completed my credits and am on my way to graduation thanks to the program. I recommend Ombudsman to everyone I know who is struggling in their home schools. I would like to thank the staff of Ombudsman West for guidance and encouragement during my time here.”

Davante Trent“Hello! My name is Davante Trent. I am a student at Ombudsman. As most people know, Ombudsman is an alternative school. My experience at Ombudsman has been amazing. This program has inspired me to work hard and push forward towards my goals in life. I am currently in the 7:30-11:30 shift. It helps me to use my time, help my family, and help myself to get a job. I feel more comfortable at Ombudsman because it’s not crowded like regular schools. The time schedule is perfect for me. Ombudsman has made it better for me, and I would recommend it to any other student. I would like to thank all the teachers and staff at Ombudsman for making this a better place for me.”

Sharonica Loston“Ombudsman makes me realize everyday how mature and better of a person I am becoming. I’m learning to think before I react to certain situations, I’m learning to remain focused on graduation, and even better I have learned how I couldn’t have done it without their help. I would refer any one that wants to get their life together to Ombudsman.”
