Why Choose OFL William S. Hart?
We have the support students need
Students work independently at a pace tailored to their ability and learning level, as teachers provide individualized attention and guidance. The low student-teacher ratio allows each student to meet one-on-one with their teacher to discuss homework, course packets, and testing. Student Advisors, Counselors, and FREE Tutors provide additional support as needed to help each and every student graduate and achieve their dreams.
We work around students’ schedules
Students can enroll any weekday of the year; there is no need to wait for classes to start or the semester to begin. Once enrolled, students, parents, and teachers partner to create a class schedule that respects and meets the needs of students.
Diverse class formats for every learner
In addition to independent study courses, students have the option and are encouraged to participate in small group and online instruction. Math, English, and Sciences are taught in small groups, free from distractions. These diverse class formats incorporate collaborative projects that encourage critical thinking and social interaction while maintaining a safe environment.
Help students to be college-ready
Post-secondary and career counseling is provided to every student. Juniors and seniors attend FREE college tours throughout the year and learn what to consider when selecting a school including size, major and minor programs, clubs, location, and campus life. Students take part in workshops that expose them to application processes like obtaining.
