    There is a radical liberal bias within the curriculum, teachers and administration, from the discussions in history class to the literature lists. Parents were encouraged to attend discussion sessions on ‘implicit bias’ and it was suggested white people atone for their prejudice with a life promoting social justice activism. Staff participate in diversity trainings and teachers wear name badges including their requested personal gender pronouns(list of 63 gender possibilities) A student at OES will learn about white male patriarchy and intersectionality ally groups, but will come away without much exposure to the critical skills of a classical education. Jon Haidt writes in “The Coddling of the American Mind” that recent crises in universities like Yale, Harvard & UC Berkeley reveal we must engage in dialogue from both liberal and conservative perspectives. Unfortunately, OES gets a failing grade as the administration promotes and at times tolerates only one point of view.

    OES is a flourishing high school with an excellent facility and incredible teachers. The OES community adequate steps to make sure that all students, parents, families, and visitors feel welcome and accepted. The learning based attitude at OES is what makes it so unique. Often, when visiting or attending, students experience a particular disliking of the school process and overall hated of learning. OES is very different, through comprehensive strategies, they have created an inspiring and pro-learning community that deserves all (and more) of the compliments it receives.
    OES is a place where you will be a big fish in a small pond. Your teachers know and care for you, the students look out for each other, and by senior year, you'll feel a confidence in yourself and your abilities that you can really attribute to this education. I think there's a few aspects of this school which the students take advantage of, like the large efforts for cultural competency and the deliberate activities which we engage in to promote understanding. No place is perfect, however, but I have noticed that in times of strife the student body and the faculty will hold one another accountable. It's been a great high school experience overall.
