By eighth grade, our students are achieving well above the ACT Readiness Benchmark and above the National Average Scale Score in Reading, Math, English, and Science. 

Interpreting this data:  These graphs show our scores (blue) by grade with three benchmarks for comparison:  ACT “readiness” benchmark (yellow), National Average Scores (red), and OCS Average Scores (green).

“Kids that read have better vocabulary and have more at their fingertips. I want students to be lifelong learners. I also enjoy teaching with a bit of humor—it’s a great way not only to learn, but cope with life in general.”
