Many thanks to the GE Foundation, OCAST, and all our friends at Baker Hughes–A GE Company for providing a fantastic week-long summer STEM camp experience at OSSM for 61 students from across the state! See The Oklahoman’s newsok.com article and
At OSSM, I learned leadership and responsibility. Gaining knowledge went from a task that ought to be done to a joy that shapes who I am and who I may become.
Rev. Sara Dillard Bodenstein, OSSM Class of 1994 (Weatherford H.S.), Mathematics Professor at OSSM
I learned that I have a passion for physics that I did not know I had. At my home school, I would have never taken any physics class. But, because of the exceptional physics program at OSSM, I found a major portion of what my passions are.
Nick R., OSSM Class of 2017 (Tuttle, Bridge Creek H.S.)
OSSM is an experience that truly changed my life for the better. The community of OSSM is amazing, and I have made friendships that will last a lifetime.
Faith T., OSSM Class of 2019 (OKC, Westmoore H.S.)
OSSM is an experience that breaks me down, but builds me up. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and exposed my weaknesses. But it gave me the environment to motivate myself in any given challenge and grow stronger along with the rest of our community.
Bella N., OSSM Class of 2018 (Lone Grove, Plainview H.S.)
OSSM has taught me how to push myself and has made me a better person overall–It heightened every area/aspect of my life! The faculty and administration here have put forth tremendous effort to provide me and my classmates such high quality education. For that I am forever grateful.
Abel Z., OSSM Class of 2017 (Oklahoma City, Mustang H.S.)
OSSM has not only facilitated my aspirations in an academic setting, but it has allowed me to explore the realm of opportunities outside a student’s traditional comfort zone.
Ritvik G., OSSM Class of 2017 (Tulsa, Union H.S.)
Attending OSSM has given me a support group in the form of fellow students turned family. The small class size, amiable environment, and awesome faculty has set the bar that all future education will be measured against.
Angela Z., OSSM Class of 2017 (Norman H.S.)
In so many ways, my experience at OSSM grew me as a person by completely breaking down and rebuilding my perception of an excellent education. Not only was I able to experience a competitive yet collaborative school culture, but I learned much more than I ever thought possible.
John N., OSSM Class of 2017 (OKC, Southmoore H.S.)
Through the rigorous academics offered, OSSM has allowed me to feel well-prepared for college and beyond. OSSM has presented students with many opportunities that would not be available to them at their traditional home high schools. Students of OSSM become a tight-knit community, and [although] we have switched [temporarily] to virtual learning due to COVID-19, faculty has continued to work towards keeping the same academic standards for students.
Ashley M., OSSM Class of 2022 (Yukon H.S.)
I learned the value of true friendship and to be more accepting of my own imperfection (such as grades) because in the end we all learn from our faults and flaws and can always improve. OSSM certainly has given me a first, real experience of hard work — There is no time or space for procrastination!
