Bike Shop

OFHS’s school-run business provides an opportunity for meaningful work in the community under the guidance of a business teacher. Our bicycle repair shop and renovation shop is the business focus of young adults 14-18.

Freshman and Sophomores have an opportunity to work in the shop while they study business aspects in detail, including: economics, sales, bookkeeping, marketing, and bike mechanics.

Juniors and Seniors will have the opportunity to take on managerial roles in the shop, or to develop their own business projects with specialists. Students may also conduct independent Economic studies. Student-created businesses may be either brick and mortar businesses or digitally based. Junior/Senior businesses may span the gamut of fields, including: service, food production or production of other goods, greenhouse based projects, consulting, and app or other I/T development.

All work is noble. The only ignoble thing is to live without working. It is essential to understand the value of work in all its forms, be they manual or intellectual.
