Our students enjoy the full high school experience! From growing as leaders at our annual leadership workshop to developing their personal interests through individual opportunities, we are so proud of the focus on growth our students demonstrate. Here are just a few highlights:
This past weekend three OLHS-MSA students represented us well at the Virginia State Science and Engineering Fair in Roanoke, Virginia. Pierce C,, Youran G. and Kristof S (shown from left to right). Pierce won 2nd Place in category and Youran received two special awards. We are so proud of them!
Pierce C.’s research project will serve as his senior project which he strategically decided to complete early, as he has been selected to receive the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) scholarship. NYSLI-Y is a rigorous overseas language program supported by the Government of the Unites States of America through the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Pierce will be studying Chinese (Mandarin) in Kaohsiung, Taiwan this summer. Gōngxi nǐ, Pierce!
Shelbie G., who is in Japanese IV, was selected to participate in the Global Classmates Summer Summit this summer, which will be held for nine days in Washington, DC. The selection process was very competitive. However, she was chosen to be one of the six participants to represent the US students who participated in the Global Classmates program this year.
