OWL is a member of the national network of Expeditionary Learning (EL) Schools, which promote rigorous and engaging curriculum; active, inquiry-based pedagogy; and a school culture that demands and teaches compassion and good citizenship.

Crew is a key component of the OWL school community. Every student is a member of a Crew – a type of advisory group that meets daily in groups of 12-15 students. During Crew time, we work to build an inclusive and cohesive group and set a positive and fun tone for student achievement through community-building activities.
Parent involvement has a big impact on student success - that's why parents have always been an integral part of our community. Parents are encouraged to volunteer in our classrooms, at events, help with fieldwork or student activities, or on the committees that shape our school.
