Learning Culture
At OSTB, we facilitate diverse & secular foundational curricula, best suited to the passions and abilities of creative, unique young people and supplement those core educational experiences with a variety of engaging and enriching opportunities in a collaborative community of like-minded peers.
This fusion of traditional, innovative, and interactive education empowers them to pursue their academic and creative interests in an environment that celebrates innovation, aptitude, and interpersonal triumph to achieve mindfulness and self fulfillment as local and global advocates, environmental stewards, and universal knowledge seekers.

Individual academic empowerment through learner/parent/faculty synergy

The ideology of OSTB has been cultivated from epistemological research, integrating constructivism and humanism paradigms with experiential, Socratic, & Sudbury methodologies of knowledge acquisition.
