Upper School Academics
We offer traditional and unique courses in the Upper School. The team-taught Ninth Grade humanities course combines English and history by introducing a cross-cultural exploration of ancient world peoples. The science program is designed to provide acceleration, inspiration and enrichment for interested, talented, and motivated students and includes a strong research component. Though not required, it is common to find OES students taking fourth- and fifth-year foreign language courses and doing college-level work in various disciplines.
Afternoon sports, music rehearsals, performances and special workshops allow students and teachers to grow and learn together. The daily schedule also provides time for student/teacher conferences, special help sessions, large community gatherings, or just casual conversations.
