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 place where I can surround myself with hardworking people who can help me become the best version of myself possible. This school is the first step in becoming everything I want to be while I create lifelong relationships with the students and faculty.
Genevieve D., OSSM Class of 2022 (Sulphur 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.
Seaira H., OSSM Class of 2017 (Hugo H.S.)
At home I could not have received the level of academic support or the caliber of college counseling I receive at OSSM. Living at OSSM taught me I can volunteer more, learn more, work more, and achieve more than I ever thought possible. A million thanks to all who make it possible for students like me to take advantage of the biggest opportunity Oklahoma has to offer.
Jake B., OSSM Class of 2017 (Enid, Chisholm H.S.)
OSSM has really given me the challenge I have always looked for… [and] significantly increased my confidence when it comes to taking and handling challenging academic courses. Even during a worldwide pandemic, the faculty have been supportive, understanding, and caring! The resources and opportunities we get at this school are something I would never have gotten at my home high school!
Khushi D., OSSM Class of 2022 (Yukon H.S.)
OSSM provides unique education opportunities for students who are seeking to challenge themselves. By inspiring a high level of excellence, OSSM helps students to flourish in whichever field they wish to enter.

OSSM prepared me for a petroleum engineering undergraduate program which helped me start my first semester of college as a sophomore and have a higher GPA after that first semester. (See more of Tyler’s story HERE!)
Tyler Carter, OSSM Class of 2012 (Sand Springs, Charles Page H.S.), Petroleum Engineer
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.)
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 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!
