Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics:
Situated in Oklahoma City, The Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics (OSSM) is a prestigious two-year residential high school (Grades 11 & 12) designed to educate academically gifted high school students in advanced mathematics and science. OSSM was created through legislative action in 1983 and graduated its first class of 44 seniors from across the state in 1992. The school currently has 71 juniors, 63 seniors and an ultimate enrollment estimated at 300.
- To foster the educational development of Oklahoma high school students who are talented in science and mathematics and show promise of exceptional development through participation in a residential educational setting emphasizing instruction in science and mathematics.
- To develop, evaluate and foster science and mathematics instructional programs.
- To serve all schools and students of Oklahoma through research, teacher training and outreach activities.
Admission to the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics is a highly competitive process initiated by written application. Approximately 70 to 80 students are selected each year from an applicant pool of three hundred students.
Since accepting its first juniors in the fall of 1990, OSSM has selected students from all of Oklahoma’s 77 counties.
Students make application for admission in their sophomore year for a two-year course of study beginning in their junior year. The application consists of several interest inventories, written essays, parent statement, recommendations from an English teacher, mathematics teacher, science teacher, principal and counselor, student transcript and ACT score.
Sophomore students are encouraged to "shadow" an OSSM student prior to making application. Prospective students will spend an entire school day (8am-4:30pm) in class.
They will attend classes, eat lunch and view the dorm. "Shadows" can be arranged with a few days' notice and can be scheduled September through March.
