Options High School opened its doors on June 4, 2007. OHS is a non-traditional high school that offers academic options for students that want to complete the necessary requirements for obtaining a high school diploma. OHS uses a competency-based learning system with flexible scheduling for young adults who are not successfully completing a traditional high school program. The student’s commitment and desire to earn a high school diploma, combined with a caring, positive learning climate, determines the student’s degree of success. OHS is designed to serve those students who are self-disciplined, strongly motivated, and committed to furthering their education in a self-paced environment. Students make progress at their own pace using computers and other supportive software, and are expected to meet all SISD graduation requirements. Their records are sent to their home campus for verification of graduation eligibility, and have the opportunity to attend a graduation ceremony at the home campus.
