  • OMS Mission

    Learning for ourselves, each other, and the world.

    Vision of an OMS graduate

    OMS Citizens show respect, responsibility, and empathy when they:

    • ask meaningful questions
    • think independently and work collaboratively
    • analyze information and communicate effectively
    • address challenges creatively
    • take ownership of how their actions affect themselves and the world
    • advocate for equity and social justice
    • serve their community

    2019-2020 OMS Problem of Practice

    While OMS data show persistent opportunity gaps among some student groups, the data also show that all students can grow as learners.  OMS students value a community of learning, personal relationships with students and staff, relevant and challenging experiences, and choices that engage them in learning.

    2019-2020 OMS Theory of Action

    When all staff collaborate in meaningful ways to:

    • Build relationships that cultivate a positive community in service of student growth and achievement
    • Design relevant, challenging, and personalized learning experiences that involve opportunities for student choice in creativity, reading, writing, and critical thinking
    • Create standards-based learning targets that foster student-driven learning
    • Use formative assessment, feedback, and goal setting to drive instruction
    • Reflect on beliefs/assumptions, systemic practices, curriculum, and instruction through the lens of equity and then make changes to disrupt inequities

    Then all OMS students will be engaged and grow as learners.
