"This school truly saved my life. It helped me grow. After 8+ years in a private school and 2 1/2 in a public (high) school, the teachers at OSS taught me the true importance of education. They helped me regain confidence in myself... Most importantly, they provided not only, me, but each one of their students with love and understanding. My OSS family is one I will carry in my heart forever!" - Elizabeth D., former student

" 'S' is a student who normally does not open up and share. It was very difficult to get to know him and crack his tough exterior. I assigned his English class an essay in which they had to describe a pivotal moment in their lives. 'S' wrote more in that first day of drafting than I had ever seen him write! He detailed all of the obstacles he had faced in his young life, including his dad's incarceration and being abandoned by his mom. His pivotal moment came when he learned he was about to be a teen dad. He wanted to be someone his son could look up to, and he started taking steps to get sober, leave the gang, and graduate from high school. I felt really blessed to be let in to his thoughts and read about his experiences. " - E, former instructor
