LIVE, WORK AND STUDY WITH A PURPOSE.
 

Welcome to our accredited high school, created to prepare you for all of life’s opportunities! Here at Oak Farm Montessori High School (OFMHS), our approach to education aligns with the Montessori principles of purposeful work, respectful community, personal self-expression and practical life skills, to name just a few. Our unique curriculum challenges each student to explore their world, think creatively and achieve independence. We believe that when the purpose of study is to participate fully in one’s community and help move it toward the future, students are more motivated to gain expertise and truly work toward their own future. Simply put, hands-on learning that impacts the community is the work each of you is poised to do.

 

THE OFMHS EXPERIENCE.

Our one-of-a-kind school integrates exploration, discovery, creativity, innovation and technology in all courses of study. The high school provides you with opportunities to use your talents to impact and engage with society in powerful ways through Environmental and Social Impact Projects.

 

Passion and Possibilities Projects

You’ll focus on long-term community projects, moving outside the walls of the school and engaging with the community. These two two-year immersions are an integral part of the curriculum.

  

Intersessions

Twice a year, you will participate in immersion studies lasting one to two weeks. In the fall, the study topics are mandatory, based on grade level; and in the spring, you may choose from a list of creative offerings. To your enjoyment, many involve travel – whether to nearby locations or foreign countries!

 

Course of study

Courses fall into three categories: Self Expression, Academic Development and Preparation for Adult Life. From creative writing to language studies and integrated sciences, an emphasis on exploration, entrepreneurship and use of hands-on technologies is a common thread that runs through all three categories.
