Athletics offers all students the opportunity to participate on a team and in meaningful, physical activity.
The program promotes the health and safety of the participants and provides opportunity for growth through individual and team participation.
OES emphasizes positive group involvement, good sportsmanship, and respect for reasonable authority, fellow team members, and opponents.
OES operates on a no-cut policy — there is a team for every level of experience and skill. Any student choosing to participate will have the opportunity to be on a team and play in the games.

Directions to SPARC
The Sports and Recreation Complex (SPARC) is at a separate location from the OES main campus. Fencing, tennis, and some basketball and volleyball games are held at SPARC. A steep, unpaved path leads from the main OES campus to SPARC, but vehicles must take a longer route. SPARC is located at 6699 SW Oleson Road, and maps can be found on the OES maps page.
