    Mission Statement

    The mission of OMS, in partnership with parents and the community, is to prepare responsible lifelong learners to be productive in an ever changing world by providing quality education in an environment conducive to learning.


    We believe the purpose of school is to lead students to reason well, desire knowledge, apply learning to new situations, and accept responsibility for the challenges of today and tomorrow.

    We believe all children have the ability to learn more when immersed in a highly engaged environment that values individual growth, daily success, and positive relationships.

    We believe the focus of school is to design purposeful, engaging work and to provide relevant experiences that promote success for each student.

    We believe that school personnel must form collaborative partnerships with parents and the community to share responsibility for providing students a safe, supportive environment where they can focus on quality work.

    We believe in providing employees with encouragement, time, resources, and professional development to meet high expectations for continuous improvement.
