OSSM has been an amazing experience for me. Although the classes are challenging, they interest me and stimulate my mind in ways that my home school never could. However, the community has had the most profound impact on me; it is clear to me that wherever I go, I will never meet people or have a community quite like the one at OSSM.
Catherine T., OSSM Class of 2019 (Edmond, Santa Fe 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.)
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.)
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.)
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 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.)
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.)
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.
Geoffrey Simpson, OSSM Class of 1993 (Edmond Central Mid-High), Software Developer, Tulsa
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 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.
