Public and free for qualifying Oklahoma high school juniors and seniors, the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics (OSSM) challenges students far beyond the traditional high school model. Everything at OSSM supports students’ academics—from the school’s residential model, college-level curriculum, and largely doctoral-level teaching faculty to required evening study halls staffed with faculty and absence of cell phones and limited personal internet. Students leap forward in their academic progress, with many OSSM graduates take numerous college credits with them to their chosen institutions of higher learning
~hence their quantum experience!
The Class of 2017, just 68 students, earned some $10 million in merit-based scholarships.
