O'Donnell Middle School
Keysha McKnight: I am a parent with two 7th graders relocating from Greenville, Ms. My first overall impression of O'Donnell Middle School was a great one. The nurse has an excellent attitude, also the counselor assigned to my girls. The school itself is very impressionable. My first impression is that I'm going to love this school. I hope my impression of the school and faculty remain the same, but I'm confident that it will.
