Odyssey offers an innovative approach to education by providing its students with instruction in a second language, Greek, along with an emphasis in mathematics. The Greek language provides an additional focus on the classic roots and fundamentals of English, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
A rigorous standards-based curriculum and instruction in the Greek language is delivered in a challenging, yet nurturing, learning environment. Odyssey students thrive and excel in all academic areas while developing into well-rounded and respectful world citizens.
The mission of Odyssey Charter School is to prepare students for a lifelong enthusiasm for learning, develop a keen awareness of world citizenship and culture, and establish critical thinking and problem-solving proficiency through the added learning of the Modern Greek language and Mathematics focus.
The core philosophy of Odyssey Charter School is that students from all walks of life will establish a lifelong enthusiasm for learning, will become critical thinkers and problem solvers, and will develop a keen awareness of world citizenship when challenged with a structured bilingual and rigorous core curriculum occurring in a nurturing environment.
Beginning this fall, our Lower School Campus will be located at Building #20, in Barley Mill Plaza. For any information during the summer, please contact the Upper School.
The Board of Odyssey Charter School meets once a month in The Upper School Libary.
Starting in February 2013, the School Board will meet every 2nd Wednesday of the month in the OCS Library, at 7:00pm.
Greetings Odyssey Charter School Families,
I hope this correspondence reaches all of our parents and students in excellent health and spirits and that you have had the opportunity to spend some quality time with families and friends. Throughout the summer here at Odyssey, we are continually working to plan and prepare for the opening of the next school year. As we pass the midpoint in the summer season, I want to take this opportunity to catch up with all of you on the many exciting things happening around our school.
In addition to the summer activities and experiences of our students, parents and staff, the administrative team has been diligently working to prepare for a successful start to the 2014-2015 school year. Some examples of the scope of our activities include: Moving our K-4 grades to the new Lower School at Barley Mill Plaza Building 20, conducting renovations for grades 5-7 at the Upper School campus at the St. Thomas building, interviewing and selecting 25 highly qualified new teachers and five para professionals, attending varied professional development sessions, completing our new textbook adoption process for English/Language Arts, preparing our Charter Renewal Application with the Department of Education, and initiating the financing agreement process for our new school. In addition, we are completing scheduling for all of our students, including the more than 200 students new to our school. This scheduling also includes transitioning our fifth grade students to a middle school model, whereby students move to a different teacher for each content area.
On July 4, 2014, Harvard University's Center for The Hellenic Studies, recognized the participation of Odyssey in the collaboration program between Greek schools and US charter schools.
