On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I welcome you all to the John D. O’Bryant School of Mathematics and Science. As an exam school, one of our primary goals is to provide students with a rigorous educational experience that will allow them to compete for seats in the top colleges and universities around the world.
Families, it is our hope that you become and continue to be active members of our school community. Take ownership of your child’s success by attending virtual open house sessions, school parent council meetings, school assemblies and information sessions. It is during these meetings that decisions involving your child’s education are made. Please be sure to explore this website and sign up for the School Parent Council listserv to ensure you are updated regarding important school events and opportunities on a consistent basis. In addition, please reinforce the importance of attending online classes everyday and on time because this will support their success.
Students, in addition to putting forth your best efforts in all of your classes, I encourage you to participate in virtual enrichment programs and extra-curricular activities such as after school community service, job shadowing and internships, school sports, poetry and essay writing with 826 Boston, and much more. For academic help after school, students are encouraged to log into their grade-level support sessions from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM, Monday thru Friday. In addition, teachers will continue to provide after school support along with community volunteers for academic tutoring. Please explore this website for a full list of opportunities.
It is my firm belief that shared responsibility and collaboration between the school and home will allow us to build on the successful practices in place so that we work as a unified community toward student success. Together, we can and will uphold the school’s mission of ensuring all students “reach their full potential and become leaders who will shape the direction of society.” Again, we welcome you and look forward to working with you throughout the school year to provide a safe and productive learning environment that supports the success of all students.
