As a diverse and inclusive 21st-Century school, our mission is to graduate students prepared for future success through a safe, supportive, and intellectually challenging environment committed to the values of Spartan PRIDE.
In September, The New York Times asked teenagers to show them their generation through the question, “What can you show us that might help make the portrait of ‘Gen Z’ more interesting, nuanced, complete or real?” Almost 2,200 students answered. The winners included 36 finalists — nine winners, 13 runners-up and 14 honorable mentions — whose images and accompanying artists’ statements impressed The New York Times the most.
Students from Technology Internship visited the Apple Store on Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago. Apple staff members taught these students how to use the Notes and iMovie apps to create a storyboard and movie using personal photos and videos from their visit to Apple's high-tech classroom and the beautiful surrounding area. Apple staff members also shared best practices on how to teach iMovie to peers, OLCHS faculty and community members.
Every fall, students from all across the state of Illinois participate in a high stakes music audition process in hopes to be selected for the Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA) District and State Senior Honors Music Festivals.
