Start with a Visit

Parents are strongly encouraged to visit the OSMS prior to submitting an application for admission. Our philosophy and classrooms are quite different from traditional schools. Visiting and observing is the best way to fully understand what we are about. This will help you to determine if our school is the one that best meets your educational goals for your child. The Planning Your Visit page provides more information on this important first step.
