Principal's Message

Creswell, Colleen.jpg

Welcome to Team O’Hara Park!


The O’Hara Park Team consists of strong partnerships between our parents, students, and staff.  Together we aspire to empower all students to succeed in the middle school world and beyond. We offer a wide variety of challenging, enjoyable, and successful curricular opportunities, athletic programs, and elective choices.  Additionally we provide several interventions and supports to guide our students in reaching their maximum academic and social goals.

Middle school years are a time for growth, challenge, and discovery. At O’Hara Park, we encourage and prepare students to participate fully, take risks, be self-advocates, and create lasting memories and relationships with peers and staff.

We offer an educational experience where high academic standards challenge all students to reach their full potential as life-long learners and creative problem solvers. With a collaborative effort from all Team O’Hara Park partners, we expect increased student independence and hold students accountable for behaviors that encourage our core values which promote empathy and responsibility. Our purpose fosters mutual respect in a safe and caring school environment.

Team O’Hara Park recognizes that social/emotional development is as essential to student success as academics. Through strong teacher – student connections we develop a powerful sense of community and ownership at O’Hara Park. We believe that students, parents, and teachers all play a vital role in helping students reach their greatest potential.  Parents can check academic progress regularly via our parent portal, can contact teachers regularly through email, and can access information about school events on our website.

O’Hara Park Middle School is a wonderful place for students to get involved, advance academically, grow emotionally, and have an amazing middle school experience. I am proud to be the principal of such an exciting and dynamic school as O’Hara Park.  I look forward to working with you and your children during the 2017-2018 school year. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.  Our continued success depends on your feedback.


Go Bulldogs!
