OES faculty and staff engage in regular professional growth and development opportunities designed to solve real problems.
OES has a vast program of extracurricular activities as well as student-run and created clubs in the Upper School. They run on a trimester system so that every few months, there are opportunities for students to elect and register for something different. Over four years of high school, students must complete six Activity credits for graduation.
This Wednesday kicked off the first half-day of service for the 2018–19 school year in the Middle School. All 209 middle schoolers and teachers had the opportunity to work with organizations all across Portland.
Second graders have spent this week diving into their study of the wetlands near the OES campus; in particular, their examination highlighted the history of the school's conservation efforts for this rich and diverse ecosystem. They will spend Friday exploring the wetlands via canoes and making observational sketches.
