Theory of Action

When all OHS staff build authentic relationships with students and collaborate purposefully to:

  • design and implement engaging and relevant tasks that require critical thinking, reading, writing, problem solving, and reflection;
  • give students opportunities, supports, and feedback they need;
  • measure and reflect on students' work; and
  • adjust plans and actions based on evidence of students' learning,

Then each and every student will grow as an independent learner - critical thinker, reader, writer, and problem solver - and be prepared for success at OHS and in future endeavors.
