Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics Reviews
This is an amazing school if you plan to pursue any STEM field. Its rigor paired with the advanced courses and extremely well qualified teachers ensure you are getting a top tier education. Sometimes you may not learn well from a certain teacher's style of teaching, but you can always get help from another teacher in the same field or from a fellow student who understands the material better. Although we do have a Rowing Team, there aren't a lot of competitive sports opportunities. Despite this, however, there are still plenty of ways to stay in shape with a big gym that has a court, an aerobics room, a weight room, a yoga room, and fields outside for flag-football, ultimate Frisbee, and running. Overall, I think OSSM was an amazing school that opened up opportunities that I never would have had at my home town high school.
As a residential high school, this school allows you to focus on your academic goals. The faculty is very dedicated and are always available to answer any questions you may have. At the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics (OSSM), you are offered advanced, fast-paced classes. There is however an application process to attend OSSM. For the 2019-2020 school year, there is a student population of around 140 students. Most classes contain 11-15 students. OSSM prepares you for college and helps set you up for life.
OSSM is undoubtedly the best school for STEM in Oklahoma, and has a good amount of opportunities in physics, chemistry, biology/medical, and mathematics. Classes are very challenging and force you to learn to study and to gain a good work ethic. As an alum, this school prepared me for college in an incredible way: I got a head start on advanced college classes, and I was able to explore in depth many STEM topics, which at my sending high school would not have been possible. OSSM has a reputation for being "math prison", which in some ways is true (It's not as bad as people say), but the freedom lost is a tradeoff with the amount of knowledge, maturity, and experience that OSSM will grant you.
