OVS is still enrolling students in select grades for the upcoming academic year. Contact the Admission Office at email@example.com for details!
This month we dive deep into OVS Summer Camp! This includes our Equestrian Camp, Robotics Camp and English Language Camp, in addition to our traditional academic summer camp.
New and returning OVS students not enrolled in camp are expected to rest, explore, and tackle their summer reading assignments. (See the Resources page for the reading lists.)
Before summer break, we reached new heights with the launch of Project X, the space program in which middle school students rocketed a toaster-size capsule into near space. The capsule, which held a small Go-Pro camera, climbed to more than 100,000 feet before falling back to earth with a card loaded with images taken from space. Check out the gallery of images: Project X
At the high school, the baseball team finished its season with a storybook ending, narrowly defeating the top team in the league and finishing third overall for the season. In Outdoor Education, 14 high school students returned from a weekend river rafting trip just days before 16 middle school students departed for their own rafting trip on the Kern River.
High school students (and a few middle schoolers) also performed at the annual Festival of Talent at the Upper Campus. The performance was preceded by a showcase of fine arts from the high school art, photography and ceramics students.
Lower Campus Assistant Head of School Mike Mahon summed up the final days perfectly, stating in a note to the faculty: “The schedule of events reads like a choose-your-own adventure novel, and all of it is above and beyond what is common for this age group. There is nothing better than walking around school and feeling a sense of jealousy/envy towards the experiences the children are having.”
