Academic & Career Planning

It’s time to start the course request process for the 2021-2022 school year! 

The scheduling process is an exciting part of defining your high school experience. At OHS, we offer more than 200 classes that can help you explore topics of interest, several programs that may help you learn more about potential career-focused learning opportunities, and hands-on experiences that allow you to apply your interest in real-world settings. Our teachers and support staff are incredibly proud of the opportunities that exist at OHS, and we look forward to helping you identify the best classes to help you achieve your goals!

Based on student feedback, we have made some minor changes to the course request process. Specifically, we are spending two months to help you explore and discern classes, rather than the traditional two-week window. Please take a few minutes to review the information and links provided below.
