My hope for OSSM is that they continue to draw the rich talent Oklahoma supplies and turn those students into the leaders of academia and the global economy for the next generation.

The past two years, I’ve had the privilege to help a team of doctors with Alzheimer’s research. I’ve learned a great deal from this experience, but most importantly, I’ve discovered that my curiosity for the way the brain functions is endless. I find that each piece of new information I learn leads to more questions that I want answers to. I am excited to learn more as I pursue a degree in neuroscience and prepare for medical school
Emily J., OSSM Class of 2018 (Sallisaw, Muldrow H.S.)
OSSM has challenged me to not only learn more about math and science, but also about myself. I feel so lucky to live with so many amazing people with inspiring goals and ambitions. I’ve grown so much here and am so excited to see the impact this school will have on me even after I graduate.

Pooja V., OSSM Class of 2019 (Lawton Academy of Arts & Science)
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.)
I have learned the importance of managing a profound amount of work with spending time to relax. Learning to balance the two ideas can change how you approach all work in life for the better, making you a more effective worker.
Michael A., OSSM Class of 2017 (Tulsa, Jenks 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 not only allowed me to mature and develop important life skills, it gave me a community of people (friends and faculty) whose influence will stick with me for the rest of my life. Remembering all the hard physics problems, long labs and random study sessions in the mezzanine, I realize all the fun I had and I’m truly happy to be a part of something so special.
Joy O., OSSM Class of 2017 (Tulsa, Jenks 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.)
Through OSSM I have gained a better understanding of other cultures, a confidence in what I do even if I fail, and I now know more about what talents I have and how I can use them to achieve my dreams. OSSM really has helped me mature and see what I can give back to others.
