The journey to become career, college, and life ready starts at Freshman Information Night, held in January every year. OHS Counselors and Teachers follow an individualized plan to help students explore and develop their pathway. There are a series of meetings each school year, to help students advance along that path.

CPM's mission is to empower mathematics students and teachers through exemplary curriculum, professional development, and leadership.
