There is a sense of security to be gained from similarity. At OSSM, however, I have found my best friends are the most different from me, and I relish in our unique approaches to problem solving. We all share in the ambition to better ourselves and the community we share.
Maggie Z., OSSM Class of 2017 (Tulsa, Jenks H.S.)
OSSM gave me a competitive environment to learn at a highly accelerated pace, which is what I and most of my colleagues have been wishing for since the discovery of our talents in elementary school.
Jake C., OSSM Class of 2017 (Edmond, Deer Creek H.S.)
OSSM is a mix of the most challenging experience I have ever had, and the most rewarding at the same time. I have learned so much so far, and I have gained friends I would have never gained anywhere else!
Jonathan Y., OSSM Class of 2019 (Hugo H.S.)
My experience at OSSM has opened me up to not only amazing opportunities, but amazing friendships. I also was able to appreciate my culture and heritage while getting to know other cultures throughout the school!
Adilenne M., OSSM Class of 2018 (OKC, Westmoore H.S.)
My first year at OSSM improved my time management skills greatly. It also improved my work ethic and has advanced my academic career much more than a regular high school would.
Katie L., OSSM Class of 2017 (Harrah, Choctaw H.S.)
OSSM offers me an academic challenge I would have never gotten at my home high-school. This certainly allows me to push myself to my best potential so that in the future I will continue to have a good work ethic, as well as the ability to overcome any obstacles in my way!
Adriahna B., OSSM Class of 2022 (Deer Creek-Lamont P.S., Nardin)
At OSSM, I was challenged not just by the academic rigor, but by the quality of people that I met. They helped me to challenge myself by being a better person.
Parth P., OSSM Class of 2018 (OKC, Westmoore H.S.)
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 has changed my life. I have learned so much, met so many amazing people, and had many opportunities. The heavy course load has shown me that I can accomplish anything, no matter how hard it seems. I have met a lot of people that have similar ambitions as me and we have grown together throughout our time at OSSM.
Parker S., OSSM Class of 2022 (Madill H.S.)
OSSM helped me the find the people that care about me and push me to be better every day.
