Transportation to and from school is the responsibility of parents/guardians. Odyssey Charter School bus stops are provided at specified "hub" locations.

The successful operation of a school requires the cooperation of many people. Please familiarize yourself with our Code of Conduct 2015-2016. This is subject to change for subsequent school years.
I cannot attend an open house. Can I call the school and schedule a private tour?
Unfortunately, due to staffing constraints, we are unable to accommodate requests to tour the school outside of our scheduled open house times.
My child has a sibling who currently attends Odyssey. Does he/she still have to apply to attend Odyssey?
Yes. All prospective students must complete an application in order to be considered for admittance to Odyssey Charter School. For further information about the charter/choice process see School Choice
